Week 4, Day 3, Day 4: 0 words

Yes, the whole week so far has resulted in no work done on this story. I am desperately behind this week. God only knows if I will catch up. This past weekend, as expected, was a writing wash. Chores, actual washing, running errands and a bit of fun all conspired to leave with no writing time. So neither this story, nor the science fiction short is any further along and the short is due on the 30th.  In my head it is done, but on paper (or rather my computer screen!) it remains unfinished.

I shall write tomorrow about how much I managed to do today. I need to type lots and very fast.

Week 3, Day 3:120 words

Today when I was spell checking yesterday’s work, I had written rouge, like the make up, and I did not want makeup. I wanted the other word, the one that meant something like rebel, wicked, bad boy, like that. I used word-web to find synonyms and I couldn’t.  For the life of me, I could not figure out how to spell the word I wanted. I could not even figure out what its synonyms were.  Then it hit me – I typed in scoundrel (thinking of various romance novels Scoundrel This, Rebel that and Devil the other). Finally, in word-web’s types tab, and lo and behold, I found rogue.  Thank you word-web! The only difference between rouge and rogue is that g and u are reversed.  But such a difference in meaning! Really, I can just picture someone reading rouge and laughing their ass off.

Wrote a mere 180 words today. I don’t understand why I am so slow. The words just aren’t coming. I think I was a bit frustrated today by how long it took me to figure out the proper spelling for rogue.

Week 2, Day 3: 0 words

0 words, just like last Saturday. I felt ill yesterday and went to bed early and could not write in the evenings like usual. Couldn’t read, either, just sleep.

Week 1, Day 3: 0 words

No words written at all yesterday. It was day 3 of week 1 and also a Saturday. The whole saturdayness of the day wrecked my writing plan. Gonna have to make up the word count in the next few days so my very first weekly word count is not destroyed.
