Word Count Update 7th April


Advertisements

I hadn’t expected to have a high word count today. There was an issue outwith writing that needed my attention. Ah, the joys of writing at home 😜 So, I yoinked an extra hour of writing time this afternoon–and a flagon of coffee (what’s the volume of a flagon?).

Anyway, Running the Asset‘s manuscript is now at 102,278 words. 🎉

  1. I thought, I just see how many words Susan wrote today and see if I can match it tomorrow morning ‘cos I’ve got a couple of hours to myself (see my previous comment this afternoon). Looks kinda stretching… as in ‘oh wow’.

      Thanks, Chris!

      I’m only able to hit these word counts because of the crazy outlining I do. Most of the detailed notes for each scene clock in somewhere between 300 to 600 words.

      If I were to do it blind 😬 Yeah, I’d be lucky if I came out with half of my daily count.

      • I have to admit that makes sense. A few bullet points at the start of the intended chapter makes the ‘brain squeezing’ much more intense! Having said that, I did make progress today: Chapters 1 and 2 all finished (for 1st draft), Chapter 3 underway with another hour’s writing to go today. Not saying more for fear of jinxing myself.

      Thank you, Aletta! 💖
      Oh, that’s so awesome you know that! 🤩
      With this new knowledge, I’d say I was close to a flagon. (800-900 ml)

      Unfortunately it was a “where did that water come from?” issue. Solved it… Jez’s juice leaked before he went to work.🤣
