WIP Wednesday: Bell-Men

Last WIP Wednesday I was 45,000 words into Bell-Men. Now I'm 62,000 words in. 17,000 words is a pretty good week's wordage; pardon me a moment while I smirk.

I'll get to 65,000 words tomorrow even though--ick--I have to work unexpectedly. Usually I have Thursdays off. Then again, usually I waste my Thursdays-off by playing video games, hiking, watching TV, and reading other people's books. I'll miss the hiking, but I can go this weekend.

The pace of Bell-Men has picked up, although I've got a lot of ground to cover before the end of the book. At some point soon I'm going to have to sit down and map out the last few chapters. I have a handful of images and scene snippets I want to include, but I don't know how they all tie together. I suspect that on some level I do actually know where everything's headed because I keep dropping clues as I write, often without realizing what I'm doing until it's already on the page. Huzzah for subconscious plotting!

Egads! Fantastic word count!

I've written a total of...let's see...100 words or so in the last week or so. But, I did finish Jack of all Trades! I want a plush Pepper toy now.

Ghost Hunters tonight!

K.C. Shaw said...

Aaron--Thanks!

Jameson--I like the show they have after Ghost Hunters too, the Destination Truth thing.

Also, I want a plush Pepper toy too.

Well done on the word count! I am in awe : )

Forget the smirk. You're smile is sending waves of sunshine all the way to the dreary UK coast. You are kicking everyone's ass.

K.C. Shaw said...

Natalie--Thanks! :)

Cate--I'm actually just using up all my Nano energy and I'll probably tank in November.

You are an animal, in a good way.

Can I pick what kind of animal? And can I switch in between animals, like one day I can be a horse and the next day a hawk? That would be fun.
