Word Count 27th July 2021 (and the last few days I missed)

Running The Asset

Word Count Update

It’s a quadruple update today.

After waiting almost twenty-one weeks for my second COVID jag, I finally got it on Friday. The long wait was down to having had an anaphylactic reaction to the first one (AstraZeneca), so the second one (Pfizer) had to be administered in an allergy ward. Fortunately, it went well with no allergic reactions.

Friday 23rd July

I was so freaked out and focused on the jag that I barely got any writing done. I managed a grand total of 172 words written. Freaked out might be a wee bit of an understatement.

Sunday 25th July

I was still in a lot of pain. The jag combined with CRPS just made it nigh on impossible to think straight. I added 10 new words.

Monday 26th July

The pain started to ease a bit. But, I felt disconnected from the story. I spent most of Monday re-reading what I’d written and blocking out the next scene.

Tuesday 27th July

Today was my first day of feeling more like myself. The excessive pain is still there, but I’m now able to think clearly. Well, as clearly as I ever get ðŸĪŠ

I finished blocking out the scene from yesterday, then blocked out the remaining scenes for Act I.

I added another 1055 words to Running The Asset‘s manuscript, taking it to a total of 17,837 words!

That’s it for today. I’m going to put my feet up and enjoy a nice quiet picture with Jez. John Wick 3 sounds good to me.

Thanks for joining me on this adventure! Stay safe.

    When you aid you were focused in the jag, I thought you had a new car 😂

    1. We don’t do no cars! ðŸĪĢ Nah, it’s Scots for injection, spikey, prickly, sharp etc.

        In Australia jag is to catch/get something that was a special price “I jagged a great camera today”

    It really sucks when you’re too sick or sore to write, but at least your vaccination woes are over. Onward and upward, Susan!

    1. Thanks for the encouragement, Chris! I’m almost back to normal now; just got a ton of catching up to do with, well, everything.
