Happy Hump Day!

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.

By George, I think I’ve got it!

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.

Building momentum

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!
