So Close I Can Taste It!

Over the last week I have spent a significant amount of time focusing solely on completing my latest novel. It currently sits at just over 82,000 words, and my hope is to achieve my 91,000 word goal by the end of the next two weeks.

Attaining my goal, of course, means that writing is pretty much all I am doing, apart from taking care of my children. Luckily for me, I have a wonderful Mom who offers to take the kids off my hands on occasion. Yesterday was such an occasion. It was wonderful. I woke up early, got my computer out and wrote until the kids were brought home late in the evening. I was able to write 4,400 words in one day!

Every time I write another 1,000 words, I get so excited! That is one thousand words closer to my goal!

It is for that reason that I have not posted many blogs of late. I plan to focus on my novel until it is finished and edited, then I will be back to my normal self!


  1. Until you start your next novel! lol You're doing great, Cheri! Congratulations! :)

  2. Thank you! Haha ya, but when I start my next novel I'll still be better able to put it down for a little bit to do some blogging. I'm heading into my last ~6,000 words or so, and I'm ready to focus! :)
