Daily Writing Progress, Week Five: Tuesday

What? Less than a week between blog posts? Crazy!

I’m worried that our leaf-jumping days might be over. After a beautiful day yesterday — nearly 80 degrees — the forecast calls for up to six inches of snow tonight.  Yesterday, we spent a huge chunk of the day picnicking and playing at the park in the gorgeous weather.  I am so not ready for snow.  If I ever win the lottery (or sell a million books – you’d think the chances of this would be slimmer, but since I don’t play the lottery, they’re slightly higher), I am going to spend an entire month every winter in Australia. Besides the fact that it’s summer there in January, there are some really awesome people in Australia I’d love to see again. 🙂

I finally finished the first draft of Simon’s wedding in Eirentheos. I’m not happy with it yet, but that’s what editing is for.  After two weeks of struggling with the whole thing, I finally figured out where Quinn, Thomas, and William were trying to take me (or get me to take them), and I’m really pleased with the direction of the scene following. 🙂

So….

How many words did I write yesterday? 1,318

Book Two progress so far? 31,318

Onward … this week’s goal is still to reach 40k!

  1. Woot! Good job! I have faith you will reach your goal. 😀

  2. Aw, you’re so lucky! I love snow! And hoping we have plenty by Thanksgiving. But not to worry, if early snows there are anything like early snows here, it’ll be gone in a couple of days and be back in the 60s-80s.

    Yay for Quinn, Thomas and William for making their path clear to you. Only another author really understands what you mean here. People who don’t write think we’re crazy when we say things about our characters taking the stories over. 🙂

    Keep up the good work, Breeana! You’ll get there. You have to….because I have to know how the series ends! 🙂

  3. Breeana, you help keep me motivated! I had a few good days and some bad days this past week. I am now at 64,000 on the third novel. I’m also doing research by interviewing people and studying books (as well as online) to make the scenes realistic since it is set in India.

    The writing is helping me to cope with some harsh realities in my life right now. It is kind of my escape and helps to keep me sane. 🙂
