Pulp Writing Speed Day 12

For Day 12 I reclaimed an older chapter and made it work with the book the way it now is. I added 614 new words of rewriting/editing/writing 1,460.

I do have a few more chapters that I will probably be able to bring back into the fold, but most of the stuff coming up is going to be new, to meet my current vision.

Historically Saturdays give me very little time to write, so I’m not even going to plan on Day 13 being anything near amazing, but I’ll show up. 🙂

Pulp Speed Writing Day 9

Day 9 had a word count of 1,375, not too bad for not having time to write. That brings my book’s word count to 40,818. I have another 17,000 words I’m likely not using. That might be a good excuse for a book of short stories. I have some unused material from my Hungry Gods series that’s just sitting around.

Anyway, Day 10’s not going to write itself. Gotta go…

 

Pulp Speed Writing Day 8

Day 8 was an example of not being in the mood to write, but showing up to do something anyway. I had to use a timer to make that happen, but it worked.

I ended up outlining for awhile, deciding what I want to do with all my new story arcs. After that, I had about 30 minutes of writing time which got me a total 942 new words.

Day 9 will be the same. I have a few new twists for the climax that I’ll outline, and then I’ll go back and maybe add another 942 words. Day 9, however, is almost over, and it’s one of those days where I feel like crap.  Too much sun and too much heat.

Last week I averaged 1,542 words per day. This week I want my average to end higher than that. Most of the total word count will be accomplished on Day 10.

Two more of my secondary characters are going to get story arc’s now. The odds of seeing the completion of the 1st draft by the end of my Week 2 isn’t looking good. End of August, maybe?
