Weekly Writing Status-Jan 14, 2011

Friday January 14, 2011

Second status of the year, course after the bizarre dream I had last night, I’m not sure if I’ll still be shivering in my bed by the time I manage to get this post up. But for now I seem to be able to stay cognizant of my bodily functions, so I’ll go on with my status post.

I managed to get in 8941 words this last week, or averaged 1277 per day. That’s not half bad considering the last couple days I commented in my journal that I might be crazy for keeping up with 1100 words a day, 7 days a week. I could use a day off from time to time, but until I start losing more hair than I already am, I’ll see what I can do about keeping up with my pre-determined schedule.

I’m up to 64K words on my ‘Grandpa’ novel. I only wrote on it three days this last week. Most of my time was spent working on some short stories.

2300 words on a short story code-named Happenstance.

1300 words on a short story code-named Precipice.

1800 words on a short story that I’ve since abandoned called Fervid Locks. I actually will break this into two separate stories. (I failed trying to weave two separate stories together.)

I also spent some time editing a short story called Death and Recompense. I’ll be sending that out to beta readers this next week after I get another pass through it.

I want to thank everyone that’s read my first short story called Day to Day. I appreciate all your feedback so far! I will have something for everyone to read shortly, a little more hard-edged than my last story.
