Tuesday Tally

Status of my novel
total words to date: 36,275
pages: 158
completed chapters: 8

Goals for this week:
  • 1,o00 words on Emergence
  • write at least two scenes in Mirror
Sunday I spent time working on the character outlines for two characters introduced in this chapter, and wrote some background and description of the Fey Realm. Felt really discouraged with my writing yesterday, but pushed through it and ended up getting a lot done. I'm afraid my main character is going stale. Her last couple of scenes have been kind of blah. Hopefully I can add some life again with her next scene.

I wanted to write more today while the boys were napping, but doesn't look like that's happening. They've hooked up a house right outside our apartment, no clue what for, and the water running through the pipes for over a half hour now is killing my head. The rushing is translated to pounding and I can't focus. I'd go out and see what they're doing, but that would require going past the sleeping one in the front room whom I wouldn't dare wake up. No point laying down either. Ugh. Maybe I can get something done tonight.


  1. Here's wishing you more time and less distractions!! =)

  2. I am amazed at how dedicated you are Mary. It just shows that you're a great writer!
