Week Two of Challenge

Well it's halfway through week two of the challenge and I'm pretty much on schedule. Word count after 10 days is 16,612. I'm extremely pleased with that, I haven't written that much in a long long time.

The weekend was, as I predicted, as waste of time only managed to get 1,373 words written over the whole weekend. But I'm back on track now. Although having said that looks like my darling son may have passed his cold onto me. God love children *sigh*

On another note my Desire query was sent off a week ago. I printed it out at work and gave one last read. Found a couple of errors which I sorted out and did a re-print. Then signed and put it in an envelope and my friend from work mailed it for me. Why didn't I mail it you ask, well putting it in the mail tray was a big thing for me. Also with someone else mailing it I wouldn't be tempted not to send it!!

So now I need to work on my pitch for the Desire online pitch competition and hope to get a call up for that.

What an amazing few weeks it has been for me. I've done so much and really feel like I'm achieving something. Now if only my characters in this new story will co-operate. They are playing hard to get and it's looking like this story will be longer than 10,000. Enough for a full length category story? Not sure but they have been telling me things which have got me thinking there is more to them than I initially thought. How exciting!

Everyone stay warm.

    You didn't decided to target Desires instead of HPs? Good luck!
