3-29-15 Sunday Word Count

party ferris wheel vegas
A new ferris wheel in vegas with small party rooms that go round and round instead of seats. No way for either version.

Another week at Mom’s. Lots of running and writing and I managed to drag her to see Cinderella. It was very sweet and I recommend it. Thanks to the lovely boy who kicked my seat throughout the movie, I encourage people not to take children under 6. None of the wee ones I saw that day showed any interest in the film. I think I will sneak out to the new Will Ferrell movie next. Not sure if Mom will be interested but I will try to encourage her to go.

Onto the word count. Most of the week was spent on edits. I don’t think I wrote new stuff until today.

How to Sex Your Snake, June Nash 1:
Genre – Mystery
New this week – 1540 words
Total Count – 17013 words
Release date: Late Spring 2015 – still on track

Goals from last week: final draft of chs 7 and 8. Rough of 9. Well, I finished 7 and wrote an additional 600 words on 8 and still didn’t finish it. I want to shut off my computer for the day, so I’m quitting there. I didn’t do much more than add a couple of notes to ch 9. I also chatted with my cover artist, gave him some basic ideas for what I was looking for, and he’ll get back to me with some sketches.

Goals for next week: finish that blasted ch 8. Get a good first draft of 9. Write at least one blog post that has nothing to do with writing. Or running.

I did not get to my updated Finley Wade book, which is now called, Script to Screen and Inbetween. Subtitle to follow.  Since today is the day I had planned on having it finished, I need to push it back to summer 2015. I think I will set it aside until the final draft of How to Sex Your Snake goes to the editor.  (I am on track to finish Snake on April 26th)

Warm weather is finally here. Get outside.

Write on,

She currently resides in Florida, where she’s a reasonable driving distance to roller coasters in the Orlando area. 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.
