I’m late posting this, but I was chasing after word counts and got busy I’m going to give abbreviated reports of totals as I burned the crap out of my hand yesterday and it isn’t too easy to type just now. For the period of October 21st through 27th, our high day goes to Keri Ford with 2600 words! Our high week total goes to Shawn Hansen with 6775 words! Good job y’all! This was one of those weeks where folks were dropping like flies. We had illnesses, a death, and general whoop ass by life.
I came in with one knockout and six sessions for a total of 2536.
Merrilee stepped out, in need of some massive plotting.
Jeanette had one knockout and six updates, total of 1700.
Francesca is sick, but still came in with three updates worth 1298.
Rachel had a death of a near friend, but still came in with one update worth 424.
Despite the flu, LeaAnn came in with four updates worth 1894.
Stace reported one update for 400 words.

Oh and Selestial also dropped out to do some major plotting.
Cumulative for the week we had 40,018 words.
many thanks, Kait! This has been such a valuable exercise, even though I haven’t done as well as I’d hoped. What a fabulous way to warm up for the word count excesses of November 😉
I’ve been plotting a lot the last couple of days, but as for actual writing… Sat down three times to start something and got nowhere… We’ll see – I’m parking butt in chair right now for my fourth attempt of the weekend…
Thanks, Kait!!! I was MIA at a chapter retreat this weekend, but managed 900 words on Saturday. Totally unexpected. Friday and Sunday were busts. 🙁
Hi! I actually got sick this week but did manage to write a total of 700 words. Not too bad.
I have to pull as well – my one WIP is now three! Arghhhh! Don’t care enough if you don’t know enough background, and the background I know is so complicated . . . also now on to extensive plotting – must have more for the backstory. I’ve never sat down and outlined like this before, so its a new process for me. Back to those Plotter vs Panster posts!
