Project Goal: To get a first draft this novel.

Stage of writing: First Draft

What inspired my current project: I read a story on tumblr and read comments that said someone should write a story based off that topic. The suggestions and my desire to expand on it inspired my own version. It's paranormal (not sci-fi as I originally stated).

Last Update WC: 18,650
Week's Total WC: 13,756
Total Story WC: 32,406

  4. 1,895 
  5. 1,789 
  6. 3,143 
  7. 1,684 

Last 200 words:

“You keep those boys in line,” I said stealing another kiss. “Check up on Sammy too when you can.”

“Of course,” he said and kissed me on the forehead then stepped back, “See you in a few days.”

I walked back holding his hand as long as I could before I turned around and headed towards the line. Zadie and Amelia stared around pretending to not be watching Eddy and I but I knew they had and I didn’t care. They were already half way through the line so I’m glad I ended it there when I did. I turned back around halfway to them and saw Eddy there with his thumbs hooked on his short loops and I felt my heart stutter. I was still hopelessly in love with this man. I can’t believe that being away for only two days will already be this tough.

By the time I reached Zadie and Amelia they were teasing me with their moony eyes and kissy noises which I could only roll my eyes at them and laugh. “Come on girls. Like you haven’t already found a guy who makes you swoon.”


Thoughts of the Week

Total Words This Week: 13,756

Decided to list some of my thoughts I've had during the week to give you a little more insight on my progress and/or struggles.

  • Dropped the ball on updating this week. Good news is that I finally caught up and am back on track!
  • Forcing myself to start to write is working because once I'm in the groove the words start flowing easily. One day I hit 3k and didn't even realize it! I'm always pleased to see that happen.
  • I proudly was able to keep the word count up and exceed it some throughout the week to get me back on track. There were times I wasn't motivated but I stuck with it. 
  • The thing about forcing myself is that I ended up staying up late which made me exhausted the next day which didn't help motivation which made it a terrible cycle of not being motivated then me being exhausted the next day. Set your priorities better than me.
  • Hoping I'll be able to keep it up this coming week as I know it'll be the holidays and the busiest time of the month for me.
