Day 4

Up early again, blurry eyed at my computer, resulted in another 704 words. It must be the fish in our aquarium that are talking to me.

  1. Way to go, Jacquie! That's awesome :-) I'm up and wondering what year/month/day/solar system it is.

  2. Thanks Hal, after reading your comment about landmines before, I was hoping that they would not creep into my mind as I am writing another chapter on hockey.Good luck figuring out year/month/day/solar system.

  3. Hey Guys!

    Jacquie--way to go! Bleary-eyed writing is better than NO writing, right?

    Hal, I hear you on the confusion--just finished my daily goal (at 7806)and am sssoo brain dead. I promised myself I'd edit a chapter a week of this other manuscript and the week's almost up, but seriously, by the time I'm done my pages, all I want to do is watch Columbo for the rest of the day...

  4. Well after a 'day off' I got my word count today. 750 words. My "dick and jane" screenplay is actually kinda fun to do. It's very quiet so far but as long as I can see the movie in my head, I don't really mind that. The hardest part of this for me IS writing "see spot run" and being ok with it. But, honestly, even if I thought that what I was writing was terrific, I'd still think it was garbage by the time I got to the second draft. Re-writing is writing, right? As far as I'm concerned, we're all amazing simply by virtue of the fact that we're doing this...period. You guys are Rock Stars. Here's a quote from my current spiritual guru:

    I have defeated this earthworm with my words. Imagine what I would have done with my fire breathing fists.
    Charlie Sheen

    heheheh....

  5. Well I didn't get as much done today as I did for the last few days, as I started reading this thing in the morning, and revised a huge chunk of what I had already done - probably shouldn't have done this, but it now makes a lot more sense. But I only did 1002 words today.

    It doesn't look like 1002 words but that's what the computer says, so I guess I'll have to trust it. It's 1 1/2 pages single spaced, so maybe it's counting things differently.

    Not sure if I'll get much done tomorrow, but we'll see.

  6. aw, I know, I wanted to maybe work on revising my other novel, but it's not gonna happen. Greg, I agree. There's a booth in the Seattle SF museum where you can make your own rock band and music video. Any suggestions for a band name?

    Tired tired tired. Sitting at 7052 words now.

  8. I like Literarit, but I think we should spell it "L!ter@ti" just because...

  9. Lol I like Literati, and Word Count. :)

    The Novellas has a certain ring to it, too.
