5-10-15 Sunday Word Count

If they really liked me this would be a steak.

After seven weeks at mom’s, I’m finally home. I missed my word count last week after my traveling companion got food poisoning and spent two days in the hospital. Lots of hanging around as they decided whether it was food poisoning or something else.  Thanks to editing, what I did write, ended up counting out to 3 words less than two weeks ago. Even though the count doesn’t show it, I did tighten up chapter 10, rewrote a section in the middle and with just a few more hours I should finish it up. I’m back to writing tomorrow but for now, here’s the word count.

How to Sex Your Snake

Genre – Mystery
New this week – minus 3 words
Total Count – 25,279 words
Release date:  Summer 2015 

Goals this week: Get chapter 10 to my editor and get a rough first draft of 11. All the beats for the rest of the story are done. Sometime during the week I plan on finally watching Snowpiercer before it leaves Netflix. Rushing out to meet everyone for a mother’s day dinner. Happy M day and 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.
