TTIN Challenge: Heyday 8 & 9

Tuesday night at our local ACFW WORD meeting, we had a great evening of fellowship and talked a lot about the craft of writing with Romantic Suspense Author Lynette Eason. I was so impressed by all she manages to do, that I invited her to be on this blog. We'll plan that for the near future and I'll give a book away as well.

Congratulations to Eva Maria who has already reached her 5k mark on her word count for her work in progress and she will receive a copy of Ronie Kendig's Digitalis. 

Yaaayyy Eva!

For the rest of us who are bringing up the caboose on our writing, we won't give up and will keep plugging along. Missy, I think, is a close second to the 5K mark.... I think we need an incentive to continue to reach our goals. I'll be brainstorming the next goal/word count to reach and what the gift will be for you in return.

As for me, I have my synopsis laid out for this historical, and have some tweaking to do. Then, I'll need to sit down and actually work on the scenes. I'm taking my laptop with me today, so hopefully, I can get some work done on a lunch break.  I'll check back in and let you all know.

So, how about you?

(And, Eva, send me your mailing address again...Thanks!)

Although I have been thinking through ways to add to my story to lengthen word count, I haven't had the time to sit down and write yet. I'm hoping to make progress toward the writing goal this weekend.

Thanks Christy!

You don't have to give me anything though, the challenge is enough reward.

Hope everyone is having a great day!

Hi all--sounds like progress is being made. I'll post a word count for my week tomorrow after I do some writing. (I'm hoping to take advantage of a Saturday morning where I don't have to rush out of the house!)
Thanks again for posting this! Or is it hosting this!!

I'm sorry I missed Lynette the other night!

Great work, Eva!!

My count for Thursday was 1270, which wasn't bad considering I was out of the house a good bit yesterday. I'm ready to jump right in this morning. :)

friday count: 1861. Yay!! And now I'm going to eat some Italian food. :)

Y'all have a great weekend!
