Hello, folks. You know I don't post much here, because most of my writing is of a 'fiction' kind. I don't have lots to say except I've written a few new stories since last updating. I guess I'm working on a collection! I have that half-or-more finished novel that I was working on before the last novel I wrote, but I feel increasingly disconnected from it. Which presents a great moral: don't quit writing one project to start another and assume you'll turn back to the first one easily.
Anyway, I've started a new word count 'diary' in Excel, and in the last week I've written 8,843 words. Since I took Friday and the weekend off to go camping, that's a little lower than I would like.
I'm sorry to say that my stories about crazy people give me higher word count per hour, but it's true. As I always used to say, in a statement I should put on a T-Shirt...
My word count always jumps when I get to the crazy monologues.
I've gotten into the first person lately and I find that it turns the entire story into a crazy monologue, so I'm really learning a lot about myself and writing more per hour than ever before.
