Now that I've finished chapter 13 on book 3 and edited it at least 3x, I can move on to ch 14 and get some words in. I dislike heat and it's warming up in Oregon, so I do a little gardening then when it gets hot I spend the afternoon inside typing. I have been typing out all the scenes in my head starting with where I'm at and going on to the end. Need to know which ones are important to the story and which one's can be weeded out --- which I think mean's I'm working on an outline and the 3-4 pages I've written don't count :-(. So, I'll push on to 14 for some real words and report back! KT

I've been working on my Q4 WotF entry. It won't leave me alone mentally, so I figured I'd better write it. I'm hoping to finish it with enough time to get back to my novel and meet my 8k goal. I'm gonna need another 2500 day, me thinks...
Irina, I don't mind leaving word count disciplines up to the individual. However, your separation sounds good. If writing for an audience, it counts. So, a review, posted online, has a sort of fiction quality to it. It's meant to inform and entertain. However, a critique is solely for one person.
I suppose I'd count my reviews at the end of the month if I needed a few hundred more words. But hopefully my stories alone will carry the 10k. Especially this month because I'm doing well.
