No I didn’t get laid off as of yet. At my job, there has been some layoffs due to a slower work situation but that seems to be working for me. The lack of voices and friends to chat away break time is allowing me writing time at work. I eat my meal by myself and grab the pen. I scribble out some words or description of the scene. I write it all over again and so forth. Not bad considering I did well at keeping my breaks in check and wrote a third into the chapter I was working on. I did two drafts of the part of the chapter too which was the bonus on the cake.
I have the next two days off so the plan…and it is a loose plan at that… is to finish up the two drafts and chapter. Afterwards, I plan to plug it in and see what my word count is at. So hoping in a few days there will be a drum roll, excited eyes and a few yells from the guests who visit about my new word count.
Crossing my fingers for somewhere between 54,000 and 57,000. Anything higher will get a yell or two from me! 🙂
