Home Alone: Report #2

>> Saturday, July 7, 2007

Wendi and Jo are back home now. Here are the totals for the week:

Chapters written: 6.5

Pages written: 54

Average pages per day: 9

Bowling high score: No improvement

Home runs hit in a row: No improvement

Best nine holes of golf: No improvement

Episodes of Doctor Who watched: 7

Mellow Mushroom pizzas eaten: 2

As you can see, I made much better progress on Something Wicked and Doctor Who than I did on the Wii. That wasn't for lack of playing - but I may have hit my Wii Sports ceiling. Once you peak, you can actually earn negative points for underperforming. Getting to pro level is actually more difficult than I had ever imagined - but I shall persist.

And I . . . guess I'll finish this book too.

Nine pages a day is better than my usual average, which is around 5-7. I had hoped to finish more chapters - get further into my outline - but the last chapter I worked on turned out to be 14 pages, which was far more than I expected! That's longer than I generally like chapters to go, so I may look at breaking it into parts when I go back through for the first major edit. It was a difficult chapter to write too - it's a pivotal moment in the story, and I had to get it just right. It'll take more work when I get to the next round, but for now it's on paper (well, on screen) and I'm happy enough to push on.

It was a productive week, but I'm glad my peeps are home . . .

9 pages a day is great!
But it's always nice to get family back home!
