Beaver Nation Is Back in Black!!! (And Word Count Update)

It's that time of year again! Beaver football kicks off tonight. We're ditching the kids and going to the game with friends. I'm looking forward to getting away for the evening.

Of course, that means I have to get my 1000 words in before we go.

And that, of course, leads me to my word count update. Yesterday I hurt my back picking up Gremlin #3 and ended up spending most of the day on the couch. Bad for my back. Good for the writing. I wrote 6168 words!!!! It would be better if all those words had gone into the WIP that desperately needs to be finished, but I had an epiphany about a new proposal I want to write and the first chapter completely popped into my head. When something like that hits, you don't question it or push it aside. I ended up writing the entire first chapter of the new book (24 pgs) and then bounced over to write three pages in the WIP. I would have stayed up and kept going on the WIP, but by that point I was wiped. So today...the 1000 words are going in the WIP. Have to get through this scene so I can get to the good one which comes next. :)

How are your goals going?

Wow, Eli, that's good going. Well done. My goal is 7 pages a day, but I have my sister and her husband and 1 yo staying at the moment. No pages are being written. But tomorrow is another day :).

Awesome on the words! Sorry about the back!

I actually decided to bring our writing challenge to my students and amazingly several of them are interested in trying to write 50 words for 50 days. We talked a lot about it and I'm so excited! I'm planning to get prizes for those who participate and last a while. I told them all about our challenge and their eyes bugged out when I said you guys were writing 1000 words a day.

Hey Eli -- Sorry about the back. Your word count contest/goal sounds interesting and if I were writing a book and not a proposal, I would be mighty tempted to horn in on the action! You did smoke yesterday...I love days like that (without the pain thing...)

Thanks for the plug about my blog and glad I could make you feel better about your emotional stability.

Go Beavers! Have fun.

Yay! Football season has started!
Hubby flew out with his team this a.m..

Oh, and good job on the word count. :)

I'll bet your students will be amazed how easy it is to write 50 words for 50 days.

I've been writing for 5 years and I was shocked at how easy 1000 words were to kick out.

Let us know how they do!

LOL, J. It was a unique day. But it felt good to be so productive. It's been a while.

Enjoy your sister and her family, Michelle. You've been steadily working for the last few months. I think you deserve a few days' rest. ;)

Fabulous, Lexi!! That's so cool that you applied it to your classroom! Be sure to update me on how they're all doing.

LOL, Alice. You always make me feel better about my neuroses. ;)

Yup, Karin. Gotta love football season. Sept games are my fav - perfect weather, excitement in the air. So much fun. We had a blast last night.
