It wasn’t on purpose, but I skipped a day of writing. I had to take mom to a late night appointment at her doctors. After which I was tired, hungry and had a killer headache. After dropping mom off I went home and to bed. After a restful night I rose and went to work knowing that I needed to write double (or at least try to) in order to make up for the lost day of writing.
Since I was working today (yesterday now), I came home went right to bed, woke at 10:30 p.m. and started writing. I made it to 40,076 words. Now I have another 1,000 words to go before I reach one of my New Year resolutions of writing more. I think I’m there already, but last year I wrote a 41,000 word novella in 15 days. I want to exceed that amount this time.
My focus is on historical inspirational romance for Harlequin. That genre is only 70,000-75,000 words. Yeah! I’m only another 30,000 words off from it. Prior to taking mom to the doctor and coming home with a headache I had written everyday for a week and four days. So much for setting a record, but let’s hear it for all that work.
