1815 for today, my catch up day. It still leaves me 5k short for last week, but that's the way it goes. I'm just glad that being sick didn't put me further behind!

Drink tons & tons of water, Stacy. It'll help flush it out of your system quicker. I think that's why I never (luckily) get sick. Feel better! Great word counts!
Thanks, Dean! I'm terrible at drinking enough water, especially when sick. That probably explains a lot...

Rebecca Frank has done two of my UF series. (The wolf & jaguar ones in my signature are from one series.) I don't think she's taking new clients right now, though.

Yoly at Cormar Covers did my Transformed series (Deception in my signature.) She's actually done covers for me in all my genres.

Been sick all week but did manage some words. Monday, 1031. Thursday, 2720. Today, 3062. Also managed to publish a book. Now to get rid of this cough.

Got sick which meant I couldn't write Friday. I wrote 2,051 for today but still need about another thousand to finish this WIP. Maybe I can get it done later today or I'll just finish it tomorrow, then work on planning my next WIP.

3,075 for today.

OMG - Every Day!!
You guys must be like machines! I may have done 3000 words one day - I think.

For some of us, it's only during the week. I'm full time, so that definitely helps. I got around 1k a day when I had my business.

I'm really sorry about your mom! Hopefully writing will be a cathartic way to work through what you're feeling. It usually helps me.

3,474 words for this morning. Also got the last two day's writing plotted out, then I'm done with this one. It might go a little long to get perfect ending. We'll see.

Great work, guys! I got 3,366 for today. Good thing I recorded yesterday's WC here because I forgot to add it to my spreadsheet!

If a reader really likes your writing, they'll be willing try something new if you wrote it. I've been surprised at how many readers have told me they tried a new genre just because they like my other books. Many have said they found a new genre they didn't even know they liked.

Look at the covers in my signature. The genres are very different, but you can tell just by looking at them. If a reader ONLY wants to read one genre, they can easily tell by cover, blurb, etc.

I got 3,020 today (on a bonus day!) despite what sounded like someone outside the house just behind me. I couldn't see anything, but I'm telling myself it was just a neighborhood pet.

Now I'm on track to finish this novel by Friday (my original goal date - yay!) The only problem is I can't decide what to write next! I'm thinking of asking my readers which one they'd prefer, because I really can't decide. Really unusual for me!

Stay warm, Sophia! I hope your daughter feels better soon, Pandorra.

I managed 3,083 this morning despite more distractions than I can shake a stick at. Looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow. (I hope! I have a sick kid too, but I think it's just a cold. Everywhere we go, people are coughing and sneezing.)

Welcome, Sophia!

4,215 for this morning. A nice combination of writing fast and my kids sleeping in.

Welcome back, Ty!

There have been a lot of changes, but some things have stayed the same. One major change is that wide and select are two major ecosystems (much more than before), both with completely different marketing efforts needed. A lot of people I've heard from make about half their income on either KU or Wide, so they two are pretty comparable - although admittedly, the wide marketing takes longer and works better with a backlist. I like Carolyn's idea of having *something* in KU, and I've been toying with the idea of putting some new stuff in since new titles are what do best in KU. I'm not sure if I'll go that route, but it might be worth a try. I've been all-wide since Aug 2016.

NYE/NYD are excellent reasons to take a break! I mostly only wrote yesterday because I didn't get in as much writing as I'd wanted last week. (I use Sundays for catching up and/or getting ahead.)

Happy New Years to all!

3306 for this morning. I'd like to get some more writing in today, but I have other things that need to be done such as getting things over to the audio publisher and formatting some more paperbacks. Not to mention enjoying the time off with the kids!

Stacy--also awesome! Hey, are you still working in your fitboard? I remember a post from last year or the year before when there were several authors lost from the wider community because of DVT or similar potentially from too much sitting. You were advocating the fitboard. I checked it out and bought one, but am soooo undisciplined.

Wow, you have a great memory! I need to get back onto it. We moved it to make room for the Christmas tree, and well, I guess that was all the excuse I needed. Normally, hubs and I go to the gym a couple times a week, but the board keeps me moving the rest of the week.

3013 this morning. We had a family emergency today, so I either won't write tomorrow or I'll pour all my anxiety and nerves into writing. Writing has been cathartic in times like this before. We'll see.
