Progress is progress, and now to play catch up

I’m making this quick and simple today.

1. Write 1667 words a day.

I’ve been keeping up with this for the most part. I don’t have exact counts because it’s a co-written piece and all in one document. But…I’ve been writing about 2500 words a day on it, and my co-writer has been writing 1500-3000 a day. So we’re nearing the halfway point after a week.

I’ve also been trying to keep up on my own novel, but that’s a lot slower. I should get a ton on it today since I’ll be stuck at work with absolutely no internet until about 2pm. I’ll hopefully have an update on Sunday.

2. keep up with all blog posts ROW80, WIPpet, Open When and add in 1 extra post a week

I have so not been doing this. This is my week to try and get back on track with it.

3. Edit at least one chapter a week on something.

I did 3 chapters for a beta read on Monday. I’ll be doing a lot more editing today since I’ll be stuck at work with no internet (do you see yet how much I hate work with no internet)?

4. crochet one round of border a week

Haven’t done this at all. Really need to since it’s a Christmas present.


I do apologize for not visiting anyone this past week. It was hectic and my mind wasn’t in it at all. I’ll definitely not do that this week.

This follows last weeks. Grace is talking with her wonderful girlfriend Amya. You get 15 sentences for today because 12 + 3 = 15.

“How’s your day going?” Grace asked.

“Busy. Lots of people are having issues, but that’s normal around the holiday. Yours?”

Amya walked down the hallway to their left, and Grace followed, knowing they were most likely going to the back offices to chat in private. Rubbing her lips together, Grace took each step carefully.

“Umm…it’s been an interesting day. I’ll just leave it at that until tonight.”

“Oh?” Amya said, turning her eyes to Grace’s.

“Yeah. That’s a good way to put it.”


“Exactly,” Grace said with a smirk and shut the office door behind Amya.

If you want to join in WIPpet Wednesday, feel free! It’s open to all. Post an excerpt of your WIP (Work in Progress) on your blog. The ONLY rule is that it in some way correlates to the date. Once you post, link it up with the rest, and check out other people’s work unlike what I did last week. And have fun!

Also, for those interested, I have a release coming up December 15th of a story I co-wrote. I’m really excited about it. Anyway–here’s the link for anyone who wants to participate in the release day blitz. And if you want to read & review, let me know via email or Facebook and I’ll get you the ARC. It’s a short story, so not long.

    Wouldn’t mind trying out Wippet Wednesday, but my sucks and I’ve seen you do some serious math on here.

    I love the casual feel of this, like they’ve settled into a different kind of intimacy with each other. It’s not so much the specifics of the snippet as much as there’s a change in tone from their previous interactions.

      =D that makes me so happy you said that. This novel takes place almost exactly one year after the first one. So they’ve definitely settled into a more confortable place though Amya is going to shake it up a bit lol

    I have to admire you for being able to co-write with someone. I’ve been approached before, and I just can’t do it. I don’t know why.

    Good luck this week!

    To my Japanese-American grandma, “interesting” is reserved only for instances when you absolutely HATE something but have way too much tact to point it out.

    “Interesting”. Interesting indeed, I bet! I hope we get to find out what happened!!

    Oh yeah, I’ve had some of those ‘interesting’ days! I agree with Amy, these two have a very relaxed feel in this snippet.

    I wonder what it is that Grace has to tell Amya? Intriguing. It’s nice to see them happy together. :)


Tell me what you think. I wanna know!
