Day 19 and I am on 27,340 words.

It took a while to get going this morning, not sure why.  It’s been a bleak winters day here in Folkestone, the beginning of the hibernating season for me.  I had a friend come round for dinner so I cooked my lasagna, I call it mine as I do it a bit different and use lamb mince as it gives it so much more flavour.  I only have a tiny bit left for lunch tomorrow so it went down well.   I also had a call from another friend that I have not seen for about 5 years so that was a good catch up and we are meeting soon for a bottle of red and Chinese as that’s what we used to do.

I thought this month would go slow as I had to write every day but it is whizzing by and will soon be Christmas.  The children are getting excited, all have written lists and letters.  I have invites to lots of performances, shows and lunches so looks like it will be a busy December.

How is everybody’s word count coming along?  I do corrections as I write for things I miss but I am leaving the full read through until I finish.  Sometimes I don’t write in order of the book, do any of you do that?  I guess everyone has a different way of getting the book down but the main thing is getting it written.  See you all tomorrow for a good writing day. x

    I read somewhere that it’s really good for writers to write their stories out-of-order for the first draft. That way they don’t get tied down with the order of things and they can go back and smooth it over later.

      That sounds good at least I’m on the right track. Have a great weekend xxx
