4-26-15 Sunday Word Count

Would you believe this is a candy dish? You can remove the Greyhound’s head. Freaky.

Another week at mom’s. In the home stretch though. Not as much on the writing front as I would have liked. Here’s the Sunday Word Count.


How to Sex Your Snake, June Nash 1:
Genre – Mystery
New this week – 751 words
Total Count – 25,282 words
Release date:  Summer 2015 

There was a lot of editing this week. I deleted about 1000 words and then wrote them back along with the new ones.

Goals from last week: finish the book.  Well. I knew that was a long shot but it was worth a try. I am on the tail end of ch 10. (I’ve got the beats down for 7 more chapters, I did that last week.) I’m really happy with the book so far and I don’t want to rush it so I’m not going to. Because I’m still on the road through @May 16, I don’t expect to finish the book until May 31. Unless I get 3 or 4 ten hours days. I don’t see that happening till after the 16th. I’ll keep updating as things happen. 

I’ve changed the release date from late spring 2015 to early summer 2015.

Goals for next weekk: Ch 10 off to Lisa, my editor. A very good 3rd or 4th draft of ch 11, which is only notes at this point. Write at least one post from the road about something non running or writing related.  

Have a good week and write on,


P.S. the Greyhound candy dish is from the same museum as the mustache cup.  I think it was about a foot and a half long. Greyhounds are relevant because there’s one in the book and she’s based on my late Greyhound Roxanne. I thought it was cool until the museum lady said you had to take off the head to get to the candy. After that, it was kinda creepy.

About melissabanczak

I'm cold. Always. I'm currently on the Treasure Coast of sunny Florida and I'm still freezing. Happily, I'm driving distance to rollar coasters in the Orlando area, so that makes up for any shivers. When I'm not writing, my husband and I run half marathons. Slowly. My first novel, How to Sex Your Snake, is available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo and iTunes.
