Word Count 2nd August 2021

Running The Asset

Word Count Update

I’ve had a major case of the too-wiped-outs-to-post the word counts. Again. Not today, well, I’m wiped, but I hate not doing what I said I would. (Guess who used up all her word and sense for the day?)

Here’s another multi-day update.

Thursday 29th July

I added another 1189 words. New total: 19025.

Saturday 31st July

I blocked out another scene and added 793 words, taking the manuscript (MS) to 19819 words.

Sunday 1st August

I had a fun writing session on Sunday. Adam and Elle are really pissing each other off. Sqeeee! Another 1310 words were added. The MS is at a total of 21129 words.

Monday 2nd August

I blocked out the final sequence of Act I this morning. Happy dance! Things are really heating up now–literally and figuratively (there’s a building fire and everything).

I didn’t manage to finish writing Act I today, but I did add another 1062 words to Running The Asset‘s MS, taking it to a total of 22191 words! I’ve written a quarter of the story 🥳

Thanks for joining me on this adventure! (I’ll be back with an update tomorrow.) Stay safe.

  1. I’d be pretty pleased with that progress, Susan! (My word count just hit 70k this weekend). We had our 1st jag this afternoon – so far so good.

    1. Woohoo! Hitting 70K is an amazing achievement! I’m so happy for you 🥳 And, I’m so glad you’ve had your first jag now. Still no effects, or did it get you a couple of days later? Fingers crossed that you both sailed through it.

Leave a comment below--I'd love to hear from you!
