Work in Progress: 25th Feb 2015
Well here I am again writing a log of another weeks worth of writing and the progress I'm making in completing a publishable novel. Yesterday I sent my Alpha reader the first absolutely brand spanking new chapter full of words she has never read before. There's a bit of a standing joke in the flat that not only is the hero of my novel stuck reliving the same day over-and-over again, but that my Alpha reader is re-reading the same novel over-and-over again.
Oh how the long winter nights just fly by when you're having fun.
Looking at my running total for the week I see I've written a total of 4,361 words, just shy of double the number I wrote last week, and this brings the current running total for the novel to 87,266. I note that yesterday I wrote 1,038 words to finish the new chapter. I might well have written more this week if I hadn't felt so ghastly on Monday, having had some problems with my pain management over the weekend. Still I had a great weekend in Brighton and got to go with my Godson and his sister to Brighton Modelworld.
It doesn't get much better than that.
Oh I forgot we also saw The LEGO Movie with the kids. So yes it does get better than that, even if I thought the movie wasn't quite as good as it thought it was, and did I mention we also played a game of Star Wars:X-Wing with the kids too? Therefore we got to spend quality time with them. So everything is awesome (warning dangerous earworm tune).
Catch you all on the bounce.
