Hope your week is going well! After a very busy weekend, this week has been quite productive. I got up at 5 on Monday and Tuesday, and at 6 today. Tomorrow I’ll have to go back to 5 since I have to leave the house at 7 for work. I need to head to bed soon, but wanted to get in a report tonight.
By the way, in case you’re checking things like this, the time on this site is whacked. It’s saying it’s 3:00 AM as I write this, but it’s 9:00 PM in my world. I haven’t figured out how to fix that yet. In fact, since I got the site up, I haven’t spent much time fiddling with it. I’ve been writing instead, and I’m happy with the trade-off.
Today, with just under a 1/2 hour this morning and about 45 minutes at lunch, I managed to add 600 words to my manuscript. This included a scene revision, so I’m a happy camper. I’m definitely seeing a benefit from the daily work.
Off to bed so I can get busy bright and early tomorrow morning.
I figured out the problem with the site and think I have it fixed!
I didn’t even have to resort to learning asp or php. Whew!
I already made some progress today, so while I’m here, I’ll post my check-in. If I do more tonight I’ll post that, too.
This morning I worked for about 30 minutes and wrote 226 words and deleted about 400. Is that progress? Yes, because the new words are better!
Also did a little brainstorming. Hope to work on more of that tonight and flesh out the details based on new ideas.
I lied. Kind of. The website is up, but you can’t see it unless you go to www.galemichaels.com/wp, so the next item on the list is to figure out how to make a home page that points to the right place. At least it’s there. After learning about how to upload the site, when I went to go do it, it was already there. Talk about confusing! And I thought I was pretty tech-literate, which is why I’m being obstinate about hiring someone to create this site.
Anyway, my check-in for tonight is that I wrote 253 words in my 30 minute session this morning. It’s not much, but every bit helps. I also did a little more brainstorming on one of the story issues. At lunch I was able to brainstorm some more.
I’m seeing proof that the more often you work the easier it gets — building momentum.
I will work again in the morning and report back tomorrow night. See you then!
