Progress Friday

I think I deserve meself some of this delectable treat! I got off me butt this week and seems like the mojo is back! I clocked none less than 9,800 words in the past 7 days! And I worked successfully on 2 different WIPs!

Okay, I'll stop with the ! marks, but I'm really happy today. 2.7K of that total was on the new story I'm doing as part of a challenge, the rest was on the current WIP with its meter here. I'm not adding a meter for the challenge story because I don't know how long it will be. I'm not pantsing it but I have no set and structured outline for it. It's a romantic suspense, and as per the previous rom-suspense I wrote, I'm letting the action guide me and set its own count down.

So I'm pretty much officially at the 1/4 mark on this story! Whoo-hoo!

I've found a new rhythm to getting things done. I'm still clocking some words down in the evenings but not reserving evenings for writing now. Usually my mornings are spent with the blog, email, FB, etc. Afternoons are for household stuff and urghh, cooking. I'm making it so that I don't have to cook on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This way, I write in the morning, with a fresh mind and in complete silence, and attend to the networking/email stuff in the afternoons. It's worked this week - I hope I can replicate that in the coming days.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend! I know I'll be enjoying mine, even if it's to bask in the high of that chocolate cake!

From Mauritius with love,
