Tonight was the Year After the Norman Invasion

I’m on a roll! 1067 words tonight. Hence the title of this post seeing as the Norman invasion was in 1066. That’s 3 days in a row that I’ve hit my minimum. Yay for me.

Off to bed. Sorry to be so dull. I’ve missed too many days at the gym on account of staying up too late.

    I just had to come and visit you, the other Carolyn who posts on Meljean’s blog. Hi. I’m Carolyn Jean. Also a writer. Maybe if we get into the same room together, one of us will disappear!

    Hey, I have to say, I like to see a sane word count as your daily goal. I see these other writers with 2k, 3k, 10k as their goals, and wow, I just can’t do that! Or I can, but the quality goes down. You are sort of an inspiration to not be so over the top on that.

    Your book trailer looks cool! I’ll definitely read your book. congrats. I’m just starting the offers process. Most exciting.

    Hey, Carolyn! If your middle name starts with an L we’re in trouble. I don’t think we could ever risk being in the same room.

    1,000 words a day gets the job done. In 30 days, you’ll have 30,000 words. In 90 days, you’ll have 90,000, and that, my friends, is more or less a single title book. Some time to edit like mad, and you make your deadline.

    If you have a day job and a family, I think anything more doesn’t give you time to be anything like normal. But my hat’s off to people who can crank out more.

    And good luck with the sale!! Let me know how it goes. That’s so exciting!
