Pulp Speed writing Day 32 – A Book in a Week Challenge Week 2

Do you ever have one of those days where your mind just turns off? That’s what happened to me yesterday. My story isn’t following my outline close enough, and I didn’t have answers to some of my questions with the plot, so I gave in to anxiety.

Yes, anxiety over writing.

So, yesterday I still did not pass 200,000 words, and I most definitely didn’t finish my book in a week. So maybe it will be a book in two weeks?!

However, Spilling Blood Season 3 is now in Paperback!!! I’ll get some physical copies into my hand for those who want theirs signed soon.

For my new work in progress, I wrote a little over 23,000 words in a week. That’s alright. My goal was 50,000. So, waaaaay off. I’m going to focus on figuring out where the story needs to go this week, and I’m going to try and finish editing my Romance/Horror so I can release it hopefully within the next 7 days.

I don’t know what my schedule is like for writing this week, but Saturday, Tuesday, and Thursday are going to be limiting.

Also, I’m helping another aspiring High School writer with his senior project writing his novel. This is the third student I’ve worked with.
