Triumph!

This weekend, with two wonderful days stretched out in front of me with nothing much to do, I determined I would not let the time get away from me.

And so, I set to work.

I wrote 3,200 words on Saturday and 1,500 words on Sunday.

Not as much as I had hoped, but I did make room for a walk, grocery shopping, church and a church BBQ, my daughter's play date, time with the hubby, and of course, a nap.

All in all, a success.

Have you had any recent writing successes?

  6. Sunday we were all trapped home with a yucky stomach virus, and I managed to get a lot of writing done. And I started a new book!

    All down time isn't bad:)

  7. Congratulations on the impressive word count. I managed 2,500 words this weekend and put together some questions for an interview, but apart from that it was a fairly quiet weekend.

  8. Wowie wow! Go, Melissa!

    Seems like each time I have a breakthrough in one area of my writing, I fall back in another. I'm learning it's part of my process, and I can't let it slow me down.

  9. Congrats on your wordcounts! It's nice to be in the zone like that. I'm just getting ready to return to blogging, and def completed a few major projects over the summer. It felt good to really focus on those. Hope you had a good summer, happy writing :)

    Debs - 2,500 words is AWESOME. Well done!

    Janna - It's such a learning process, isn't it? I don't think we'll ever get it all figured out, even after we're published. ;-)

    Joanne - So glad you were able to focus on your writing! I'm looking forward to your blog posts again!

I love to hear from you!

One Day at a Time

I've always tried to live with this mentality: One day at a time. Unfortunately, when I implement it, I fail spectacularly. But for this...
