As you may have seen, I vowed to write every day for the month of April—and I succeeded. That was both blog writing and fiction writing, which wasn’t easy. I think my studying for my next professional certification took a hit, unfortunately!
I was editing in April, so I didn’t get a ton of really high word counts. Editing is a strange beast since it involves so much reading over previously written material. I did write some new scenes for my manuscript, which was fun. I’ve begun to really like reading over old scenes and shuffling things around and making sure the scenes tie into the overall plot.
In April, I wrote a total of 8,571 words, which is an average of 285 per day. As I said, all of that was for editing. I tried to edit for an hour every day, but that wasn’t always possible. I did manage to edit every single day, though! That is an accomplishment.
So far, I haven’t written every day in May—just some days. Last week really was not my week, I’m afraid to say. A rather idiotic neighbor backed her car up into my car. I was honking my horn at her the entire time, but she claims to have not heard it, which makes no sense. How can you not hear a car horn right behind you??? Luckily, she was going so slowly that my car has no visible damage and looks fine. There were other annoyances last week, so let’s just say good riddance to the first week of May, and I’m going to go work on my editing now.
