GYWO: Wordy June

Posted 30 June, 2010 by DLWhite in Writers Write 2 Comments

Hello all. Been a while since I blogged over here. I’d apologize, but it appears that I’ve been writing instead of blogging… which is totally fine with me!

It is month end, which means another update to my Get Your Words Out tally. Last month was a banner month for writing, and this month I did even better. I’ve been on a few “missions” the last couple of months, which is generating a lot of words. This makes me happy.

My total for the month of June, through about 5pm today, is 40,001 words. WOW! I hit about 35K words last month, which was my biggest month so far. Half of that is some thought and pontificating about changing my life and sharing pieces of myself over at the Diary.  The other half, I am happy to say, are additions to my story All I Wanna Do! I managed to get 2 chapters in last month, which is great! Got to keep it goin’!

My grand total for the year now is 203,927. That means I have fewer than 100K words until I hit my 300,000 mark. Uhm, seriously? I’m totally gonna make that. I have at LEAST 50,000 words left of AIWD, if not more. Plus NaNo is coming up in October- not sure if I am doing it yet, and a friend gave me an idea for something new that’s niggling at me. I’ve been laughing off the idea but damn if it’s not writing itself in my head!

Maybe in July. Maybe.

In all, I’m pleased with the progress! To think I was worried…………



Get Your Words Out, May!

Get Your Words Out, May!

Wow, what a good month! I totally kicked myself in the booty over my low April number. I’ve been letting myself get distracted and disinterested in writing, feeling a little down and ‘untalented’ about it. A chat with a friend put me back in the place where I wrote because I loved doing it, not because of people’s reactions, feedback and reviews. The Blogfests helped too, to get me into the writing mood, even though I didn’t even use one of the pieces I wrote and I didn’t do all 3 that I signed up for. It just goes to show that every little bit helps– I even upped my blogging game, finally trying to let go of the feeling of showing up nekkid to gym class. You know that feeling, thinking everyone is looking at you, seeing your worst qualities, picking on your flaws. Anyway, my numbers this month turned out pretty well– 39,400 words for the month. Total of 163,926. I am officially OVER halfway to my 300,000 goal. Amazing. Now for sure if I do NaNo this year that will put me over 300K, but I’m not sure I’m doing NaNo. I guess we will see once October comes and we’ll see if I have any ideas. Til then, onward! I’m still ‘just writing’ and trying to plow through my storyline. Pen in hand,
