Also got a short story written. Had a couple come back that need to go out again and need to get the short story in the mail.

Still working on this writing thing. :-)

Writing - week 7

Words for week - 6208

Words for year - 36,777

Total words out - 218,100

Did get a new short story done and mailed out.

Nothing really new this week - just maintaining.

Tired of it...

Am I the only one tired of the coverage of the aftermath of Anna Nicole Smith's death?

Don't get me wrong. I'm sorry she died. I'm also sorry for her baby daughter - it is crazy how this child has been thrown into such a questionable state while several men play "I'm the daddy."

But is it really breaking news? Is it really something we need to follow every second of? Something to be treated as hard news?

Or am I crazy?

Writing - week 6

Week 6 – 6,015 words

Had to fight to get that much and did it on a very strong medication (which is scary because I don't remember writing some of it - it's not bad, but I'm wondering where it came from).

Total words for 2007 - 30,569

Broke the 30,000 word mark this week. Happy about that.

Total words out: 214,700 Finished a short story and it's out in the mail today.

Sold a short story to Leading Edge last week, my second fiction sale. So a nice week overall.

Writing - week 5

Words this week: 2789

Total words for 2007: 24,554

No new short stories out this past week. A lot of real life stuff kept me away from the keyboard.

On the plus side, I got some queries out for two novels I am shopping around.

Back to work...

January's Writing

Word count for January: 22,878

That comes to an average of 738 words/day. About half of what I wanted to be doing.

I wrote 4 short stories in that time - happy about that.

Here's looking at improving some of those numbers in February.
