I’m working on a novel called Surfer Bride and closing in on 50,000 words. My goal is to get there this morning. I like the symmetry of 10-10-10 and 50,000 is a nice even number, too. Hope to actually surpass it by a few thousand by the end of the day, but 50,000 before noon works.
A new source of romance stories went live last night- my alter ego has a story in it but she can’t talk about it today because it is Wordless Wednesday on her blog. But check it out: http://romancestoriesmagazine.com/ One Night in Costa Rica is a story about a surfer and a herpetologist.
http://jillianchantal.wordpress.com/ and check out Wordless Wednesday too as the manuscript heads to the agent.
Wrote some more on my new story last night, Surfer Bride. I use the ywriter software- Not to actually write in but to set up my characters, locations, etc. After I type the day’s work in my regular word processing program, I cut and paste into the chapters and scenes in the ywriter. This program keeps your daily word count, your goal word count. how many more words a day you have to type to get to the goal AND it tells you how many times you’ve used a word. I highly recommend it. AND the best part is that is is FREE!
