Well I was back at work this week, and after a nice long two-week break I was certainly not in the mood to get back down to office life. Sadly however needs must.
I do not have a lot of time tonight, so I will keep it short and sweet.
Wednesday: 680 and counting
as you can see my word count has been a bit hit and miss this week. Sunday I never get too much done, it is my take it easy day. Monday my son had his first observation session at the specialist pre-school he goes to. It’s on Monday and Tuesday mornings. So I had to take him there, and we could stay and sit in to see how he got on. It was only an hour and a half the first day. Tuesday was his first full day.
Then it was the drive back home, in total we were gone about 2.5 hours. We then had a trip to the shops, 8 hours of work, another son to take and collect from school and then take and collect again after lunch, the speech therapist and then it was time for writing. I think my 280 words was actually a good achievement. I have of course now adapted my writing schedule to better fit a Monday.
On the whole I have passed the 70,000 word mark and am hitting a steady pace and am confident that things will keep going up until the end of the novel.
I am still pondering the best approach for me to take with regards the promotion and sales of Highway to Hell. At the moment I am kind of floundering in the water. My Halloween tour was fun, but ultimately unsuccessful. I generated no sales, not increased blog hits of followers. But I did get a good number of comments so it was a good experience.
However, with this new learning curve behind me I am again having to adapt my approach to find something that works for me, and I WILL find it.
Well, that about sums up the start of my week. I am hoping for a nice easy ride into the weekend with plenty of writing and plotting being done.
I would like to wish all my NaNoWriMo friends and fellow authors all the best of luck. I will be coming around and commenting on as many blogs as I can. It is one of my new goals that I have set myself. To read and comment on at least 2 blogs a day.
