Yes, it's that time of the week again, time for the kick in the pants. The idea is that having somewhere to report progress will spur you on to make some. So I'm posing the question to all of us here. Did you write this week? As we have been reminded in the past, writing for the purposes of this thread can mean just about anything you want. You did some editing? Report it here. Outlining, pre-writing or any other kind of prep work? Sure, that counts too. And, of course, writing new work always counts.

As Camp NaNo continued, so too did I. Another just over 28k words added, bringing Where The Ether Flows to 69k. I'm almost done. What am I going to do with the rest of June? Oh yeah, work on something else, probably developing book 2 of that trilogy. I'm a writeaholic by nature, I swear.

Beyond that, another fairly major idea occurred to me, including a beginning, which I dutifully scribbled out.

Also, a few blog posts.

I think that's all for me for this week. How about everyone else?

Yes, I did. Primarily finishing up the final (I swear) edit to "The Music Box" so I can go ahead and e-publish it. Now I'm back to revising my query for FIRE AND EARTH.

Also a couple of crits and two blog posts.

Over 4000 words this week. I'm beginning to feel like a productive writer again!

Dry spell. Got a novella 80% done and spinning my wheels. Been playing Warcraft and reading to get my mind off it.

Finished and submitted a story to FlashFiction. And made some progress on a 6-8000 word story that I have a sinking feeling about, unfortunately...but it generated two other ideas that seem more promising! If only I were a trust fund child and could eliminate the pesky full-time job!
