Vun! Vun veek of bloggink!

Check it out! My third post, and I'm still on schedule.

I'll be adding another category to the things I'm counting: Dickens Project Word Count. I'm enrolled in a special seminar on the late works of Charles Dickens this year, and I have to produce "a substantial piece of written work." Holding my breath, with fingers crossed, half aghast at my own temerity, I asked my professor whether, instead of researching an article, I could write a Dickens themed middle grade novel. And he said yes! I probably won't finish the whole thing this semester, but I'm hoping for a minimum of 25,000 words, or three out of my seven planned sections.

Enough chatting! On with the counting!

Pounds to lose to next reward sticker: 1
Fantasy novel word count: 30,115
Dickens project word count: 1,785


  1. WOO HOO! That is great! Are you working on both projects at the same time? As for WW--any great or favorite recipes or food items that you have found that you enjoy and are also low on points? That's always the hard part. CONGRATULATIONS ON ALL!

  2. Have you been to Hungry Girl yet? So many good tips and tricks.
    I had a great time at writing group yesterday! I got so much done, I surprised myself!
