All right folks, it's only day two and I have to say "No, I didn't write today." Work was nuts, and I'm going with my sister to put her beloved dog down tonight. There won't be any knitting, but there won't be any words.

Tomorrow I have to write 450 just to make up for it, I SO SWEAR!

*hugs* and hopes you all do better than me.

Don't feel badly... I didn't add anything to mine since day 1. OOOOPS.

Good luck getting back on track!

Well, I didn't write day 3 either. So I doubled my count for day 4 and .... Voila! I did 1500!

dunno how much in 60 minutes...but I went through 18 search words on my edit list...leaving 5 left to go (the five that will be the longest to go through)...so a good bunch of work done today, yay!
Took me all day to do it, but that's okay.

If I equate not just words found, words changed or replaced, sentences rewritten, and time spent, I'd say it must come out to about 3000 words worth of work for the day.

I'll be happy if I can get through 3 of the five tomorrow...and the others on Friday. Then it goes to an audio edit which will take longer.

What kind of words are on your list?

It's a list of words that I feel are either weak or are words I know I over use (walk, sit, stand...always, never, honestly, absolutely...and a lot of other ones) The list grows as I get to know my style more and find other words that I seem to overuse, and some drop off as I become aware of them and slowly weed them out of overuse. Another writer friend of mine does it, got me started, and I've found it useful to help be aware of my writing language.

I have some of those. :) “Just” is one I really have to watch out for.

Since I fell so far off the wagon... I thought I'd start all the way back with the oldest WIP Push e-mail I had... yikes.

640 words in this past hour!
