Word Count–Fail

I managed to capture a couple of pictures of the hummingbird on zinnia!

But I didn’t make my word count. It’s not like I wasn’t trying. I’m editing, and that means removing as much as adding. Okay, so I repeated that HOW many times? Really???? No wonder my word count was going to town.

And yes, my characters are happy, happy, happy, but I have them smiling and laughing and chuckling HOW many times? Ugh. So there goes some more word count. I have to add NEW stuff. Conflict. Answer questions. Remember to turn on the Christmas music in the antique shop. At 105 degrees heat index, I keep forgetting it’s cold in the story and Christmas!

I want to get my word count for yesterday and today. I really, really do, but…it’s only going to get there if I can come up with some reasons for what’s happening.

I do NOT have writer’s block. I refuse to say it’s writer’s block. I don’t want to use that as a crutch. I just need to think…harder.

Okay, off to think harder and do more edits, but I’m nearly to the end of what I’ve written and then I don’t have anything else to do…but write.

Have a glorious day!!! I’m really, really, really going to get some word count today.
