Make sure you head over to Sven’s place if you’re participating in the challenge and let us know your progress!

You know, math has never been my thing – I just don’t think in math terms. I think in, OMG, I want to write the entire book today, terms. Which is what can really screw you up.

Sharon/Maya have talked about this before. In a way, binge writing is awesome – when the writing is actually coming along. When you’re in those periods of, well, rest, the guilt of not writing is very stressful, especially when you’re on multiple deadlines and things are due.

I know I’ve talked about this before, but I do think that even when a binge writer isn’t writing, she’s writing. Planning. It’s all going on inside her head – she’s giving her brain a chance to recharge, to form what’s going to go on paper next, whether consciously or not.

But it makes things like reporting in for the Sven check-in difficult. How much did I write this week? Well, Larissa and I are halfway or more through Seduced By The Storm revisions, and I know I rewrote / wrote many new scenes for that. That alone probably took care of my daily word count. But I also worked on Nick’s book – I have at least ten longhand pages or more to type in. Plus pages of just free thinking notes.

Long story short, I have no idea how much I wrote this week. 😆
