April Round-up

All things reading and writing.

Reading:

I finished one. But it was Camp NaNo so…

That’s my excuse, I’m sticking to it.

Writing:

Camp NaNo was a fail goal-wise. I didn’t get my 2,252 sentences I needed to finish. I did manage 1,953 which was 87% of my goal. All of that added up to over 29k words of just Uncalled For Actions. Adding the daily blog posts and I had 40,176 words for the month.

YTD total: 66,104

Streak: Still going strong with journaling at 850 days (since January 1, 2017)!

Editing/Finishing:

Because of all the sentences finished, I was able to edit seven chapters of the story.

Previous totals: 1,836 sentences; 28,034 words

Day 29

  • Actual: 80 sentences; 979 words
  • Written: 54 for Day 113 (Apr 23), 26 for Day 114 (Apr 24)
  • Notes: We had to run some errands including a trip to Ikea for a new dining room table (after eight years of using a picnic table in the dining room only but only in the winter). Love the new table, but the day wore me out so I got almost nothing written.

Six Sentence Sample

At the center was a long workbench covered in a microscope, beakers, and about a dozen little bottles. And one familiar feathered dart.

He picked it up, anger flaring along with a phantom pain in his neck. He spun, looking for Tarvek, just in time to get a ball of fabric to the face that nearly knocked him off his feet with the force it hit him.

“Deidrick Lafayette,” Tarvek said. “That’s the name of the designer on Avenue Montaigne, Paris.”
