Wednesday's Word Count

Another Wednesday, August the 5th. Can you beleive my baby boy is seven months old today, and my other "baby" is two and eleven months? That's right. The big three is less than a month away now. *Wail*

As for my brain child, a.k.a my novel:

Prior Goal: Brainstorming.

Accomplished: Brainstorming, outline, and 3520 new words.

Goal for new week: 5k

Excuses / comments: I think I'm back on track! I listened to all my gut instincts, came up with a new game plan, and got it loosely outlined. I'm still trying to work out some of the middle, but I felt confident enough to jump back in. To be honest, I'm hoping things have finally clicked into place and I'll be able to blow through about 10k this week, but I'm not counting on it (hence the 5k goal).

Thanks for all the kind words and encouragement you've given while I've flopped about. I really (really, really) hope this will be "the draft."

How are your goals coming along? Swimmingly? Sinkingly? Do share!

  1. I believe in you!

    I just got my three cheesy books of writerness in the mail an hour ago, so I'm signing out.

    *brzzt*

  2. My kids are almost 7 and 10 and it feels like I just got them home from the hospital! It flies by!

    Congrats on getting on track with your other baby =)

  3. Goals are coming well, but it's time for a bit of brainstorming.

  4. I need a new goal now that I've met my last one. Maybe I should finish the book I started last year in NaNoWriMo. A draft before November would be good.

    Dear Rebecca.

    Your picture FREAKED ME OUT!

  6. Mine are 2 and 5, so it's always nice to find other mothers who have to carve out time for their writing. It seems to be the never-ending challenge!

  7. I'm already having issues again (yes, roll your eyes at me, all of you) so my report next week might be FAR from satisfactory. Ugh!

    Kristi, it IS nice knowing others have little ones a foot. So many of us do, too. It's very comforting in the face of parental-writer frustration, to know there are others doing it and succeeding.
