Anonymous Tuesday

Hello. My name is Gwynne and I'm a writing addict.

For the month of June, I wrote 91,000 words. Half of that was in new!Chrysalis. The other half was silly stories about zombies, werewolves, vampires, ghosts, and the occasional demon. I think I also managed a historical romance. According to 750words statistics, I'm averaging 1200 words an hour and a slow day for me results 4000 words. On Saturday, I hit 9000 words.

Lovely HoKers, I have a writing sickness. It got so bad that I used writing as my reward for doing chores around my apartment, yet, that was the day I hit my highest word count. On the one hand, this is great. I've increased my word count capacity. I love writing so much that I would rather do that than anything else, even watch television and you know, spend time with people. When I become a full time writer, I will have no problems making my deadlines.

On the other hand, I've stopped editing new!Chrysalis and that is unacceptable. I'm about halfway through, so this week, I need to finish the other half so I can have other people read it. I'm also going to be spending quality time on a road trip this week for the 4th of July holiday so that should facilitate editing or, you know, more historical romance. After that it's query letter time because I really want to start submitting in September.

Also, Audrey, I think I've completed your 100,000 words for 2012 challenge >.> Because I am sick.

Hello, Gwynne. My name is Charisse, and I am in awe.

Seriously. Awe.

I hope the sickness continues, and best of luck editing!

It's awful! During my trip this week, I didn't get to write and I'm pretty sure I suffered withdrawals in the middle of the night >.>

But, if it is a sickness I must suffer, I suppose I'll keep it ^^;;

You are absolutely amazing, and I am so proud of you. Great job! I am really looking forward to you starting to submit again this year. I have high hopes for you. ^-^ And I hope you are chronically ill.

Thank you ^^;; I'm excited too, even though I'm really behind in my editing plan. Vacation was not good for me in that respect.

Yeah, you weirdo, you were supposed to be playing video games with me!! How can you put your writing above video games!!? XD

I'm kidding, though. That's freaking awesome! That's one sickness I could do well to catch.

I do want you to finish editing your book, though!
