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,



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.
