Personal Writing Challenge ~ update

It’s been a while since  I posted about this, though I have been updating the PWC page in the side column.

I’ve started Nano… and it seems to happen every time: something about knowing I have to get 1667 a day out come hell or high water, makes me write crap.  It just does.  I’m working on Paladin, a submission for the ‘creamy’ Ellora’s Cave theme, which has to be in for 1 Jan 2009.  I had to hack it apart last night, thicken the descriptions, the characters so that I could write the next part.  I know that’s illegal in the NaNoWriMo world, but if I didn’t I probably wouldn’t write much more on it, lol

So my Nano total so far (including days few words) is: 4384

My PWC total is 279 509. That’s 63 292 since I started about 7 weeks ago. Not bad 😀

Personal Writing Challenge ~ Update

Wolf-blood is creeping over 28k now, with possible another 12k to go. Maybe more.  this could be another endless, endless wip like Fracture, lmao.  I do hope not though.

I’ve had a rest from it for a few days and started a short on space demons – with the exciting working title of Demons – which is clipping along at the moment.  This one will finish.  It’s probably a max word count of 15k.  I haven’t written anything that short in a while *grin*

So my total since I started the Personal Writing Challenge on 16 September is 260 890.  That works out as 44 673 in just over a month, which isn’t bad at all *grin*

Personal Writing Challenge ~ Update

My respiratory tract infection didn’t – hasn’t gone away. So I’ve been feeling fairly crappy for a month. It’ll be a joy at some point to actually stop coughing. Because of this, my kidney surgery didn’t go ahead and I’ve asked if it can be scheduled after Christmas. It’s elective and the surgeon’s secretary seemed fine with that.

So to take my mind of continuously coughing, I’ve been writing. Mostly it’s been on Wolf-blood, which stands at 23k. I’ve also been slogging my way through the edits of Lost Gods. I love this story, but edits are hard. I have to think so much more than when I’m writing, lol, and my brain is mostly mush at the minute.

So my total since I started the Personal Writing Challenge is: 250 506. Which in three weeks is: 34 289. This probably has everything to do with the character of Fitz. He’s kept me occupied and distracted from coughing, lol for a fortnight now.

Personal Writing Challenge – Update

So…the first week of the PWC and I’ve managed to write – OMG – 10 890. Wow. I didn’t think it was quite that much, lol

I may get more written in October than I thought too, as my cough and cold has still not shifted. If I’m not fighting fit by next Tuesday, then my surgery won’t go ahead. And I have no clue how far into the future they’ll reschedule it *sigh*

Personal Writing Challenge – Whiskey Straight ’08

Dawn Montgomery ran off with my gauntlet and slapped a label on it!

From now until 31 December, she plans to write, write and write some more in the Whiskey Straight ’08. That’s the highball she’s going to knock back on New Year’s Eve as a reward for her months of insanity 😉

I’m going to join her – though not in the drink, I’ll be One-Kidney Kim by then – and try to write…well…a lot *grin*

Off to make my lists. Update soon…
