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 really only get to write on my days off because there’s too much to do at night or I’m too tired. I wish I could slip in more writing time! I’ve spent a lot of time this week blogging, too. But hey, eleven pages isn’t *terrible.* It’s probably what most authors do in a day, though. Okay, and usually I’ll spend two half-days writing, so I guess it’s the same, but you know what I mean!
This week, I floundered a bit after finally hitting my OMG moment that I’d been dying to write last week. The part right after it is a little boring, so I made a nice [SKIP THIS SCENE] note in my notebook to come back to! Instead, I focused on the next scene, which is also incredibly important. Plus, it deals with aftermath from the previous scene. It was hard to write, and I still might re-work certain bits, but for now, I have a draft. This is one of four major scenes that will just get harder to write from here! I’m getting to the point where I wonder if anyone but me will ever be interested in reading this, though.
On Sunday, I had a coupon, so we went to Ruby Tuesday’s for dinner. They were showing the Kentucky Derby on TV. Watching this one horse prance as he warmed up before the race gave me a vivid image of a scene that I might one day include in a book. It gave me a nugget of an idea, but atm, the idea is nonsensical with nowhere to go. All I know is that if the idea blooms into something more, it will be high fantasy. The funny thing is that I’ve been trying to incorporate horses into SUPER SECRET PROJECT FIZZYPOP, but it isn’t meant to be. Someday I will have a horse book!!
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 were as inspired as me!!!
