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.
Wow, what a weekend. I hadn't planned to write. I had planned to tackle more of my mountain of editing that I need to get done. Really. Then I got home from work on Friday and checked over an outline for a novella in the world of my first trilogy. That's all I was going to do. The story was screaming to be written and #writeclub was going on on Twitter. I wrote. I wrote 24, 254 words between Friday, Saturday and Sunday, breaking a new one day total record yesterday. 9322 words. I don't know how I still have any words today. I really don't. I think it'll take me a couple days more to finish this one, but who knows. It's close. )
Other than that, I did some notes on various ideas and made some blog posts.
Still working on that supposed-loosening-up nonsense verse...twenty or thirty pages (I haven't counted, but I do two or three pages of it a day). Sometime in the next two days---my days off from work-that-pays---I'll start thumbing through it to look for anything really interesting.

Revising two stories. My Q2 tale and one I want to send out next Saturday--wrote it months ago and I've learned a couple things about writing since. It's a simple, cliche-ish tale so it probably won't go far even though it's gotten a bit more complicated.
