day sixteen // monday // 115 wordsSo...Monday wasn't that great. I spent the day doing school, reading, exercising, etc....and put editing off until that night. And then I was too tired to even care. :P
day seventeen // Tuesday // 2,247 wordsOn Tuesday, I lowered my goal to 40,000 words. I was pretty far behind, and I just wanted to feel like I was making some progress instead of chipping at a seemingly-unconquerable goal.
The good news? *grins* I edited until 11:30 that night and got caught up (for 40k goal)!
day eighteen // Wednesday // 924 wordsWednesday was pretty busy with homework, pottery class, and church. Somehow, in the midst, I planned weddings with two friends...even though none of us are even in a relationship. (I mean, it isn't like the groom is necessary or anything...right? xD)
Tonight, I only crave peace.
Drawing the thin covering over my head, I cower and stuff my face into a pillow. My shoulders wrack and tremble.
“I’m okay,” I whisper, but my voice sounds broken to even my own ears.
Hollow. Lifeless. Worthless.
day nineteen // Thursday // 5,229 wordsI edited for about an hour and a half on Thursday morning (procrastinating school, you know) and got nearly 2,000 words written/edited. got caught up - edited in the evening and night
I also got my prologue written! I had a prologue in the first draft, but I didn't like it that much and it doesn't match up to the twist the story decided to take. Anywho, I wrote a new one and I love it soooo much. <33
day twenty // Friday // 4,475 wordsFriday was pretty ordinary. I upped my goal, though, and edited several times that day. Ahh, it's so nice to be back in this story. I've missed my dears. <3
day twenty-one // Saturday // 5,319 wordsSaturday morning was spent working on blogging and emails. That afternoon I went to a wedding shower with my mom, and edited that evening/night. ;) I also raised my goal back to my original—60,000 words!
“I’m going to be completely honest with you. I like you, James, a lot. But I think you’ve about broken my little girl’s heart and that makes me not like you. Do we understand each other?”
“Yes, sir,” I wince.
“I don’t need to know details—that’s between the two of you—but I’m not stupid. She’s hurt. I haven’t seen her this upset since the last numbskull she let into her heart turned out to be even more of a jerk that I feared he was.”
day twenty-two // Sunday // 5,512 wordsOn Sunday, I snuck in a tad bit of editing midday and then edited until late that night. Got caught up on my goal!! :D I also hit a rough spot that I hadn't resolved during brainstorming, so I had to figure out what I'm going to do about that. Pretty pleased with the outcome, though. ;)
StatsGoal (for 60k): 44,000 words
Current Progress: 44,097 words
Status: Barely ahead! The book is actually fluctuating around 63-64k, so hopefully I can hit my goal and then finish it as well. :D
How are y'all? Are you doing Camp? Can you believe April is nearly over?! O.O
