The Workload... wk 8

Another week, more numbers, some goals met, one not so much. I have no cute stories or witty commentary to feed anyone today. Mackenzie, left me word-drunk. I've been forehead deep in my story. It's been an interesting ride. I've discovered a new (quite creepy) character, not sure what's in store for her, where she came from or what she is going to be for MC, but anyway you slice it, very exciting :D

My goals last week:

CINDER - 8000
Sub pieces out (I will do this!)
Two poems

Instead of 8k for CINDER, I managed to do 10+. I honestly didn't think I would hit 8, then I had two killer days where I wrote an amazing amount. I'm closing in on 30k within the next couple of days. YAY!!

I'm happy to announce I did sub out a microfiction piece and three poems. So that goal was done. (Only took me two weeks to do it. But hey, late is better than never!)

No poems this week tho. I have two brewing in my head, but I got a revision request from a zine that I've been dying to get into so I'm going to put all of my focus on that poem until it's just right.

This week's goals:

Finish and sub out poem.
Beta one story.

Also, the end is coming near for May's Shock Totem Flash Contest. We've been on pins and needles wondering what's the who from the stories. They were all incredible pieces and I can't wait to see who the lucky winners are. I'm just jazzed I got to be a part of it and the feedback for my own story will surely help my writing.

Don't forget to pop over to Mr. Alan W. Davidson's blog for the flash contest over there!

and of course, those valiant writers who are still posting their goals as well! Give them some love too folks! K. Allen Wood, Shadowflame, and Effie (plus when you stop over to Effie's blog, you can listen to her wicked story on ShadowCast). Hugs are nice but kind words are even better...

A little something from Ricky Gervais and the fabulous show EXTRA'S to keep your warm fuzziness lasting through the night.

Thanks All! Have a great week!
Happy writing.

You are beginning to dominate this word count thing. Rock on. Once you get just flows, doesn't it?

Good luck with the rewrites!

Damn, you're a goddess, Kara! Keep up the great work, girlie!

And loved the video clip! Haha! I hate when that happens to me at church.

You rock!

Wow, great word count for the week. I have to work back up to that.

Imola said...

Congrats on setting your goal! Now that you have an aim towards which to work, all you have to!

So, best!

Aaron - The story is flowing like red wine sir!! Thanks, i think I know exactly what to do with the poem. :D

Lee - thank you sir!

Onipar - Good luck if you start tracking your wordage, let me know I'll throw you up on my valiant trackers list :D

Imola - thanks dear!

Hinny, you're doing a great job with goals. Even though you might not complete one, you've at least committed to another writing piece. That's plenty to be proud about especially for one week.

I've been writing and revising just when it comes to me. Not the best way to complete a project. I probably should force myself to revise my manuscript.

Take care and glad to read you're moving along.

Thanks Bea!! Good luck with your stuff, keep up the great work and remember if your formula words for you, then stick with it!
