3-22-15 Sunday Word Count

Pretty park near my mom.

I’m on the road, visiting my mom for a bit. The lovely photo is from the park near her place. Though it looks pretty, imagine trying to navigate a mine field of Canada Goose poop and the amorous advances of a half dozen ducks on one poor female. Those boys couldn’t get enough.

I missed my count last week because I was traveling Sunday and Monday and I didn’t write much the fist few days at my mom’s house.  This week was still an editing week so my new word count continues to be low.

How to Sex Your Snake, June Nash 1:
Genre – Mystery
New this week – 884 words
Total Count – 15,473 words
Release date: Late Spring 2015 – still on track

Goals from two weeks ago: chs 4-6 went to my beta reader who loved them (she hated the first draft) and then to my editor. Hurray!  I am almost finished with ch 7 and I have a few notes for chs 8 and 9.  I also made a couple of small adjustments to the book outline.

Goals for next week: have a final draft for chs 7 and 8. Have at least a rough draft of ch 9.

I did not work on Finley Wade updates at all so those counts remain the same.  I will try to dedicate one afternoon to that book but if things are really rolling with Snake, I will stick to that.

That’s it for now,

Write on,

An unexpected encounter with her daughter’s nine foot boa, Strawberry Margarita, led to the idea for the first book in her June Nash Misadventure series. When she’s not writing, she and her husband run. Slowly. She accidentally completed her first marathon in 2017, when she didn’t hear her husband ask if she’d like to stop at 13.1. She would have.
