I only had to work 4 days and I wrote on my lunch 3 out of four of those days. I managed to get 1,599 words out. Woot, woot! I haven't "daydreamed" out this chapter(8) but the words are coming. It actually feels like it's coming slower than what that word count indicates(for me at least.) But the details of these scenes are flowing out.
Question for anyone else. Do you ever close your eyes when you write? Sometimes I stare intently at the screen and others I close my eyes and picture what I"m writing.
As for the rest of life; well it's normal. Which is better than bad :) I wish well in all your writing and life endeavors and I'll see you next week :)

Not really, but it sounds nice. I haven't written a word on my current WIP for two weeks, but hubby isn't working out of town so I have the laptop again. I needed the break in some ways for sure, but I'm ready to start upping the word count again.
Other news for my family is we added a new member. We now have a 1 1/2 old chocolate lab :)
Right now she's sitting right next to me sleeping. Joy!
I sadly don't have much else to say :( I miss blogging but really the only reason I do it is my writing, so since I took a hiatus from writing, I don't have much to say. Hopefully next week!

Access to the internet is Weeee!!!! I don't know yet if I'll have my laptop to write with this week, but I did manage to plot out 2/3's of the next chapter. Of course that's plot, bare bones, etc... When it comes to getting those words out, that's another story...
Now this week, what did I accomplish; that is besides, keeping an eye on my kid, working, and cleaning house? Well, I managed to read City of Ashes and thoroughly enjoyed it. Ok, I know I"m terribly boring and I used to give you an "awesome" review of every book I read(or at least wrote them out in a notebook, intending on blogging them), but not this time :( I have a diaper to change/try to get my hubby to change and hay for sale to hunt down. Have a great week!

Life has just been, well life. You have your ups and downs and I've had lost of little downs. In the grand scheme they don't matter, but that's sometimes hard to see that when you're in the midst of it all. This is just proof I'm human and that life gets to me too.
Writing-wise, I haven't done any this week. Hubby has computer while out of town and I've just been reading. I think I needed this mental break but on the other hand I feel guilty for not writing. On top of that I've gotten 2 rejections this past week for my first book. Believe me, I know the liklihood of my first book being published is is low, but it still hurts. Not to mention because I've been struggling through my current WIP, I'm feeling a bit down in the writing department :( I'll make it through this though and hopefully next week I'll have a report of good news and writing! Good luck!
