Last weekend was a huge bust for me. I didn’t even get half the word count I was aiming for. Strep hit it’s high point with me on Saturday afternoon and didn’t let up for me until Sunday evening. I’m still recovering. I haven’t slept more than 3 hours at a time in a week and a half. This is getting old, people!
I know some people are doing NaNoWriMo this month and if you are one of them, I wish you the very best of luck. I haven’t participated in NaNoWriMo in several years because I never have anything new to start in November. I’m hoping, though, that one year I will.
10K Weekends for Writers is my own challenge that I open up to other authors to come and write and aim for a specific word count: 10,000 words in 4 days. Doesn’t sound like much. Really, it doesn’t. But amid all the goings on on weekends, it can be difficult. I have yet to hit the goal, but I keep trying and that’s at least half the battle. Unless I have strep and an ear infection, then I’m dead before I start.
The book I’m working on this weekend is a holiday book that I’m revising and adding new scenes to. By the time all is said and done, I should have added close to 10K, if not 15K. It’s called Christmas Wishes and I just love it.
