Sven update.

Sven started last Saturday and I managed just under 1,000 words then but nothing since. I even checked in earlier today thinking I wouldn't get anything done again today. I've had parent teacher interviews, school presentations and dentist appointments all week so far, not to mention the wedding we went to on the weekend. I was planning for things to get moving tomorrow so after getting back from the dentist this afternoon I sat down to read what I'd written on Saturday. Well not only did I read it and then had to get out some more. Yep, things took off running and I managed to get out over 800 words. That takes my total so far for Sven to 1,803 words. Considering that was in only two sessions I'm pretty pleased with the outcome, plus we've just hit the black moment at which point the happily ever after won't be far behind. Then I'll be able to get stuck into the other story that's been playing in my head. Hopefully I'll get to edit/polish On A Wing And A Prayer before the end of Sven plus get this little story out. I'll keep you posted.
Maybe I got a buzz from winning Karen Erickson's new book Fortune's Deception. I'd left a comment on her blog about the new book, which was released today from Samhain Publishing, and my name got pulled out of the virtual hat. Yay! Now I just have to find the time to read it. I've got a list of 12 books for a competition I'm judging plus 6 FAR books to review and then there's Sven. Lot's of things happen at the moment. It's going to be a big month.

Life is short, make every moment count.

  1. :0) Some of my most productive moments have been in little spurts and when I get interrupted, by oh...say the doctor coming in to discuss my case flu spreading to pneuminia, I'm cranky. Okay, I was cranky anyway because I was sick, but still.


  2. Good luck with Sven! And congrats on the book win. :D
