My very first wordmeter post

I didn't even know this was some free thing - I thought it was part of LJ. But it's free to anyone! Yeah! [Want to make your own? Click on my link and it will take you to the site.]

I have a book due Dec. 31. But to make that work, I really need a rough draft by Nov. 30. And time is whizzing buy. Sure, in February, right after I quit my job, I managed to write 40,000 words in a month. It's why I don't remember February very well. But I'm going to have to do it again.

Please think good thoughts that I will be able to pull this off. During this same time period, I need to proof galley pages for a 2009 book, make editorial changes for a 2010 book (I haven't gotten the letter yet), maybe do some work on a middle grade that I'm hoping my agent will like when she reads it, and, ideally, make some progress on an uncontracted YA thriller that I think could be pretty darn good.

That's all.
