Word Count Friday - 2/17/2012

Yay, it's Friday, time to be held accountable for my writings this week! Is it too late to hide?  *grin*

Word Count Friday:

Book: Enchanted Passion (working title) Book one of Hearts Unearthed.

Last Weeks Word Count: 12,000
This Weeks Word Count: 12,700

Total words written this week: 700


So this week wasn't all that great, though I did manage to write, which is a small miracle. Potty training has about gotten the best of me and we're only a little over a week into seriously starting!  I fear for my sanity in the coming weeks.  I really want to get going on this story, so hope to reach at least 1k next week.  I really need the motivation, so make sure you check in and let me know how you've done this week!

    1. Wow, yay, you're SO close!!! I'm shooting for 45k on this one, so I've got a looooong way to go. :-D This has been helping though, the public posting of the wordage, as I HAVE to write unless I want to post zero (which I don't). Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you next week with an announcement that you're DONE with your MS, woot! *grin*

  3. I'm at 10K for the next Dahill book. I'm hoping to add another 2-3K next week, if I survive the weekend. The final target count I'm shooting for is 60-65K.

  6. Awesome, Elaina! And I can totally relate to potty issues. My 20mo old takes her diaper off as soon as she uses it. Which is gross, and she's QUICK. Sigh.

    Last week = 4569
    This week = 6068
    Verdict = 1499
    *honorable mention: also edited my 34k word upcoming release

    OMG, REALLY? I couldn't happen upon ONE more word? LOL. My goal for next week is to top 10k words, and if I come up with 9,999 I'm going to write one more before I report in, lol.
