    Hi Cheryl and everyone,

    I’ve kind of slacked off some on my 500 words a day. I started taking a little more time and considering what I’ve written and if I don’t like it, I whack it and start over. My word count for the week is 3,565.

    Thank goodness the Arctic Winter Storm called Uri is gone. We were at 73 and maybe even up to 75 at one point this afternoon. Still a lot of people are dealing with no water and no power. We were lucky in that we didn’t lose water or power. I stopped at Jack in the Box near here and the person taking orders goes we have no drinks and no curly fries. I asked her or him do you have onion rings? The answer was yes, so I ordered the Ultimate Cheeseburger mayo only and onion rings. Then sat in line at Wendy’s to order a drink lol. Kind of silly I guess, but I had nothing better to do except get home and do some writing lol.

    Y’all have an awesome week ahead, stay warm if it’s still arctic weather where you are. We have a cold front coming in but nothing like we had since around the 9th of February.

    Hey Vicki, I feel you on a headache. A week ago I had a severe sinus headache that wouldn’t quit. It lingered off and on until our weather made its drastic change. I’m glad yours went away. I hope you feel better.

    Hey Y’all,

    I’m here in the frozen state of Texas where currently the temperature is 9 degrees F with a wind chill/feels like temperature of -8 degrees. This is historic lows for us according to the news and weather. We’ve got blowing snow with ice pellets it looks like out there. Not that I’m interested in going out and checking to see what type of snow it is.

    I had written a scene on Saturday of last week. On Sunday of last week, I decided I really didn’t like the way I wrote it. I decided to revise it and see if it was better. I still couldn’t find a way to fix it and keep it so on Monday I cut it completely. I figured out on Tuesday that I cut at least 440 words maybe a few more.

    With that in mind, my word count for the week is 1,505. It’s like the challenge ended and the daily word counts are varying. Plus, it’s tax season and I’m working on tax returns sent via email.

    I ended on a strong note for 01-31-2021 I wrote 1030 and for the month it was 21,155. That’s about half a NaNo month lol.

    Count me in for another Chain Event whenever you set it up, I’ll be here.

    Hey Y’all,

    Here we are on Day 27 already. I wrote 800 words even today. The headache went away as the weather turned colder last night. I probably spent 30 minutes or more researching clothing in Scandinavia in 800-900 AD. I laugh at myself because I’ve only reached 26,575 on the NaNo book that was supposed to be at least 50k at the end of November. Oh well, 2021 has a November and NaNo too.

    Day 26 here checking in with 770 words. I dawdled and wrote and dawdled more. Three days of the same sinus headache is three too many. Hopefully, with the cooler weather coming in it will do something to the atmosphere to stop the headache.

    Hey Cheryl and y’all,

    I got a little crazy today. I wrote 2615 words. It took 2,065 words to figure out my story plot for the day and then I wrote another 550 words on the NaNo story.

    Hey Cheryl and everyone. I wrote 785 words on the challenge today. I didn’t touch the NaNo story. I tried to ignore the urge to go back to the book The Awakeningย by Nora Roberts. The second in the trilogy will be out in November or December this year and of course the third will be out near the end of 2022.ย  It’s a great book. If you like fantasy worlds and things it’s a perfect one.

    The total words written today is 900!

    I used my SEAL series and did a story challenge 230 words long for maybe a novella in the series.

    My NaNo story keeps toddling along. Guess I will get to the important part of the story eventually. Although, I just hit 25k tonight. A few days later than planned in October when I took a class that had me geared up and ready to write until I landed in the hospital.

    Here it is 20 Jan 2021 and I read that today is one of several palindromes that occur this month. 1-20-2021 can be read the same forward or backward. I thought that it was interesting.

    My chain is intact with 865 words total for the day.

    The word count for the week was (drum roll please) 5,870 words. When we finish the month there will be 31 plot bunny stories to write. But I’m determined to stick with this NaNo story and finish it.

    I couldn’t get Google to let me into the chain or the website at all this week. I can’t remember if I posted Sunday or not.

    Anyway here’s the word counts for the week.

    Sun 01-17-2021:ย  510 words all on the NaNo Story

    Mon 01-18-2021: 610 all on the challenge stories

    Tues 01-19-2020: 635 all on the challenge stories

    I think, scared to be honest, that the kidney infection might have returned. I guess I will have to brave the cold and rain tomorrow to go to the doctor.

    If I had wanted to keep writing I would have probably had over one thousand words, but I want to read the book I just started.

    The total word count was 940.

    I had 465 on day 15 of the 30 Days 30 Stories challenge and 475 on the NaNo story.

    I’ve exceeded the goal I set for Hearts Through History’s challenge this week already with 2 more days to go on it.

    I’m actually excited that the words keep flowing this way.

    Day 14 seems to have worked great for me.

    I watched the video of Dance Monkey. Cracked me up and I love the song.

    The writing totals were 140 on the 30 Days 30 Stories and 640 on the NaNo story. Grand total was 780 words. I had to take time out to attend an Austin RWA board meeting and pull membership reports. First time since I was the Kiss of Death membership person. I still like the old website better for finding reports lol.

    I couldn’t get Google to cooperate last night to post anything.

    I wrote a total of 525 words so the chain is good. There were 325 on the NaNo story and 200 on my summary for the 30 Stories in 30 Days challenge. That chain is intact too.๐Ÿ˜

    Hi Y’all,

    Jeanne, I wish I was in Hawaii. We spent our last four years of Army life there. I sat on the plane and cried. I loved and I NEVER EVER missed winter in the least. We had snow here in Texas yesterday. I live 65 miles northwest of Austin in Killeen, TX and we got more snow than parts of the northern part of Texas.

    This week I wrote 4,235 words. I missed my 500 words a day goal once. I had an off day that the brain refused to cooperate. I’m doing a 30 day challenge with four other friends. It’s 30 Story Ideas in 30 Days.ย  I have 10 so far one for each day. I have to come up with something for today.

    I have several that need this, but I’m in the middle of three soon to be four challenges that I’m focusing on forging ahead with my NaNo (unfinished) project. I hope to save the lessons and study them when I get ready to do editing.
