Word Count Wednesday is my way of sharing my weekly writing progress with you and holding myself accountable for not giving up.
So without further ado, this week's "Word Count" for Super-Secret Project/Codename: FIZZYPOP:
(Why Fizzypop? IDEK...it sounds fun!)
I'm not really that far ahead anymore, I know. I haven't had a lot of spare time to write for various reasons. I guess, in a way, I'm also dreading writing this next part. Don't get me wrong, I want to write it so BADLY. It's a scene I've had in my head forever. I'm just having trouble getting there and figuring out how I want it all to play out.
On the flip side, I downloaded the Scrivener for PC beta this month, so I feel like a real writer now! This is what the professionals use. I can save individual chapters and export them into Word, etc. It's fantastic. I also did my first round with my critiquing partner for the first two chapters. It was scary and nerve-wracking, let me tell you (especially since FIZZYPOP is only a first draft at the moment). That said, I LOVE my partner to bits. She's amazing and we have so much in common. She just sent her feedback tonight and I can already see room for improvement, as well as things I have to reflect on because they didn't work the way I expected them to.
So even though I haven't written a lot, I've *done* a lot. I'm hoping to get a nice chunk in tomorrow morning before work, though! Maybe...if I'm lucky...
That's how my week went! Do you have a WIP at the moment? What was your word count this week? To date? Let's support one another! This week, I hope you did better than me!!!
