[Pledge] Day 2

Only 342 words yesterday. I worked all day, so wasn’t much I could do about that. Today will be better though! I’m off to work on “Say ‘No’ to Zombies“, and I think I might even do some work on “When Love Dies” and “Storm Warning” (Book 1 of the Etlan series).

I just wish wordpress had a section set aside for things like “today’s mood:” or “current music:”. C’mon WordPress! You’re slacking!

[Pledge] Day 1

No writing on any of my works in progress, but I did end up writing well over 500 words today. I believe I finished out at 1,214 words. All of it was homework related. I have another assignment due tomorrow, which will probably get me at least halfway there.

Fingers crossed. I also work all day (pretty much) tomorrow, so we’ll have to see how that goes.

Anyone else doing a pledge/challenge this month?

Days 29, 30 & 31: Ugh, Birthday, and ugh again.

Only about a week late, but the page-a-day pledge is over, and I didn’t get as much done as I had hoped. To be fair though, most of the work was editing anyway, and it’s kinda hard to measure that progress.

On Tuesday, I took the day off homework and did some writing in between birthday phone calls/messages. I’m regretting that now, since I’m having to rush up and finish my paper of Psych before tomorrow night, but oh well. Hindsight 20/20 and all that. I did get some ideas sorted out for Etlan, at least.

The 31st was taken up with having to get grocery shopping out of the way, and other errands. I wrote about 500+ words, but it was all homework. 

All in all, I think I failed the pledge, but at least I can say I tried. I think I might try doing a pledge every other week instead of a month long deal. It might be easier to manage around homework and work. We’ll see. Right now, I’m just trying to figure out what to share for Sharing Saturday…

Day 27 & 28: Some work, and homework.

Had to focus on homework instead of writing today, but yesterday I did get some work done:

“Now mama, you know there’s no such thing as rest for the wicked.” Kerry chided. She slid closer to her mother, resting her head on Emma’s shoulder.

“And they don’t get much more wicked than you, do they, shilé?” Emma’s arms came up to wrap around Kerry.

 

Day 23: do notes count?

Had to work on my coursework instead of actual writing, but if writing notes count, then I’m good. Three pages of handwritten notes before I realized/remembered “Oh, hey…I can print this out!“. So now I have 6 pages of notes that I will most likely copy by hand (just to make sure the info sticks), and I have two days to finish up a weeks worth of classwork in both classes. Wish me luck guys, I think I’m a lil screwed, and I don’t mean in a good way.
