Tuesday Tally

Status of my novel
total words to date: 54,761
pages: 237
completed chapters: 11

Last week's goals:
  • keep working on 100 day challenge - the progress train is still steaming ahead
  • finish chapter eleven - success

Goals for this week:

  • keep working on 100 day challenge
  • storyboard chapter twelve
  • finish both fantasy newsletter and Wilcox Writers newsletter and submit/send this weekend
  • start habit of blogging three times a week (Tu, Th, Mon)
Over 3,000 words progress on Emergence this past week! If I keep up this pace, I'll finish before my birthday with time to spare. I'm learning how to fit in writing time even while babysitting, without killing my head. That has surely helped the word count. I want to fit in extra blogging as well. I picked Monday and Thursday to add to my regular days, as my husband is home the rest of the week. I still feel awkward blogging when he's home. Something about someone noticing my thoughts as I'm writing them, or interrupting by asking what I'm writing about this time. Same reason I can't write in my physical journal when he's around. I don't care so much if he reads it, just if he's aware of it at the time of writing. Does that make any sense?

My fantasy newsletter this month is going to be on The Inklings, and benefits of a writers group. I need to do a little more research before writing it though. At least researching something I'm interested in is more fun than hassle. :-)


  1. Yay! You're making great progress--that's so awesome!!! =)

  2. Thanks Erica! All the progress has me pumped up. :-)
