Word Count Friday - 2/3/2012

Woot!  And we're to week three and hopefully going strong!  Let's see how I did....


Word Count Friday:

Book: Enchanted Passion (working title) Book one of Hearts Unearthed.
Last Weeks Word Count: 9,900
This Weeks Word Count: 10,400

Total words written this week:  500

I BARELY made my work count this week!  To make sure I made it, I handed the laptop over to my son (who will give me that awful teenage glare and pout if I take it back) so I could sit down and write for an hour or so.  Luckily I managed to barely scrape in my goal count this week!  Since my weekend is dedicated to editing, I think I'll set this same achievable goal next week.  So what say you?  500 words next week too, or do you plan on blowing by my number?  How did you do THIS week???

  1. I plead the fifth! LOL. No, really, I need to go to the grocery store, but when I get back I'll open up my file and see what I've done. I think it was all of 100 words. Meh. One day I will beat you senseless! (In the word count, that is. LOL.)

  2. Whhhaaaaat?! You mean all that smack last week and you barely wrote? Oh for shame! *grin* Hey, 100 is more than you had last week. And to think, I sat there and wrote last night (forced myself too) so my number would't be all weak and piddly next to yours! :-D

    You've had a bit of a stressful week, but there's no more excuses! They are GONE, so yes, here's to next weeks count being way higher! :-D

    1. We have similar word counts! Actually, Elaina and you and Melissa (if she shows up) and I all do. That's pretty cool! How long do you expect yours to get, Moira?

    2. Aiming for about 40-50k. Quite a ways to go still.

    3. That's what I'm aiming for too, Moira! With a self-imposed due date of June to my editor. *bites-nails* I need to get cracking, LOL!

    4. Mine is due before that lol. I have this one to finish and another one to finish by June.

    5. WOW! Well, I write really slow, trying to fix that (obviously, LOL!), so I'll be super proud of myself if I make my goal. I'm cheering for you to make yours!!!

  4. Moira, I'm pulled 80 million ways most weeks and my Muse has been ever patient and has actually been sticking around! So, to appease her, I HAVE to make time to write. What better way than posting a public word count (eeep!). Thanks so much for joining! The support from fellow authors joining in is SO helpful and motivating! :-)

  6. I've been avoiding your blog all day. My word count is pathetic. But I do have a valid excuse, my little guy was sick with the nasty stomach bug going around, and I had it for three days this week. SO no writing at all.

    My word count is: 106.

    wah-wah-waaaahhhh

    1. Oh my gosh, that you managed ANY words at all is amazing, Melissa!!! I'm so sorry you and your little man have been sick. :-( Hope all is on the mend!

    2. Getting there. :) I'm soooo tired though. Trying to get some more done tonight, but I'm procrastinating more than anything else at this point.

    3. I agree with Elaina. I didn't hear the wah-wah-waaaahhh sound. I heard a cheer. Sick kids and being sick yourself is not conducive to word count success. I say congrats on your 106!
