Writing stats / Challenge total

After some discussion, l_prieto  and I have decided to kick our muses into gear with a series of writing challenges. 

This month's goal is 10,000 words.  That sounds low, but with as pitiful as my output has been lately, I need a doable goal.

Today's word count: 1025 (I completed my Free Fiction Friday installment for this week, yay!)

Words remaining to reach my goal: 8975

I'm feeling good about having done something, even if it's only work on a free read.  

I also completed the first round of Unleashing Ciaran edits this weekend.  It wasn't new writing, but it was an accomplishment.  I'm looking on the bright side.  :)

Money's Worth, Part Five (X-posted from FFF)

And, at long last, Money's Worth returns!  I promise next time (9/10) will be another installment of MW and not a tease like last time.  :)

As always, don't forget to check out the other Free Fictioneers over at the FFF comm.

Still have no freakin' clue where I'm going with this one, but I'm having fun finding out...And, as always, suggestions are welcome.

Flashfics: Revelation / First Love (X-posted from Free Fiction Friday)

X-posting my Free Fiction Friday stuff here... 

Getting ready to go back to the evil day job is killing me this week.  I've spent way too much time buying stuff and arranging my classrooms, and now I'm completely worn out. 

I got nothin'. 

For that reason, Money's Worth is going on hiatus until the next time I post.  (Those of you who've been following the story, I apologize.  I promise I'll continue it next time!)

Instead, I'm posting two related flashfics I wrote a while back.

Money's Worth, Part Four, and a question! (X-posted from FFF comm)

I'm still pantsing my way through this story, but I'm liking my two MCs.  Stan's so clueless.  :) 

The premise:  A physics professor isn't happy when he learns his sister and her twin daughters have purchased him a date.  Will it turn out to be a disaster? 

My question: What should Stan choose at the end of this installment?  (Srsly guys I need help here!)

And as always, don't forget to check out my fellow free fictioneers at the FFF comm.

Happy endings

Finished something, yay!

Unleashing Ciaran is done!  It's about 26k.  It needs a bit of tweaking here and there, I think, but my trusty beta readers are tearing into it now.  What a relief to have something finished!  It's already contracted, and should be out from Cobblestone in October.  Woohooooooo! 

Now I'll be working on Nick's story to finish the Outcasts series (sitting at under 300 words right now, just started it tonight), and then major tweaks for Healer and the as-yet-untitled Healer sequel / spin-off (currently at 14k and I've barely started, that's gonna be a long one). 

I wish I could bottle this sense of accomplishment and drink some the next time I'm feeling down about my writing.

Part Three: Money's Worth (Free Fiction Friday)

Time for my third Free Fiction Friday post!  I'm winging it on this story, and it's kind of fun to just write whatever I want.  I hope I don't write myself into a corner later, though....  :/ 

And don't forget to check out the Free Fiction Friday community featuring myself and the other fictioneers:  vaughn_r_demontid_locke, and  amj_stygian 

The premise:  A physics professor isn't happy when he learns his sister and her twin daughters have purchased him a date.  Will it turn out to be a disaster? 

Any and all comments (or suggestions, as I am totally pantsing on this one) would be much appreciated!

Re: Misused words

gapping =/= gaping

rationale =/= rational

prostrate =/= prostate [Nearly prostrated myself with laughter on this one]

consol =/= console

That is all.

Sincerely,
A reader

[On a serious note, everyone does this sometimes. I'm sure I've let a few doozies slip by. But come on! To keep repeating the mistake over and over makes me a sad panda.]

Part Two: Money's Worth (Free Fiction Friday)

Last month I joined vaughn_r_demont's Free Fiction Friday, in which he posts part of a free story each week.  I liked the story I started, so I decided to continue it.  I'm going to try to post a new installment every two weeks.  :)
