The Secret of Spiral Cove

Print Double spaced

something a bit different in that it's fiction, but with a problem-solving/mathematical twist. Might work, might not... Aiming for around 30-35,000 words.

So that means I should be able to finish it in the 5 and a half weeks till the children break up for the summer hols.

Target is going to be 12,000 a week, although this week I only have today so going to crack on as much as I can.

Phew! 4,563 this morning.

No sign of the windscreen guy so I'll have some lunch and then press on

That's a lot for one morning. Wow! As usual you manage to get loads of words down Sarah, Great going.

I've spent a fair few evening scribbling it all down longhand first, so half the work is done already.

Freebird at 15:00 on 14 June 2012  Report this post
Woo-hoo! Finished the first day at a whopping 7,651!

And I feel as though I could keep going as well. Might try and do a bit more later, to see if I can exceed my personal best of 8000 in a day. Can I do 9000, I ask myself?

Fantastic word count, even with some long hand this is fabulous. What, wait did I just read that you once did 8000 in one day? Wow! Well I hope you get the chance to meet then beat that count.

WOW! That is some wordcount. So once again, WOW!

Someone had a good day, and you sound like you have enjoyed every minute of it.

Your wordcount as really cheered me up. Itís great to see that a good wordcount can be achieved - with of course the right frame of mind to sit down and get it done - because its so easy to get distracted.

I am however waiting for the update that states 9k was achivedÖ ;

Well done Freebird.

Amazing going, Freebird. That's a fifth of the way in one day!

I should be able to finish it in the 5 and a half weeks

Sorry? At this rate you could be finished next week! It certainly shows how planning things out can really help. (Note to self - start planning stuff!)

The mathematical twist sounds interesting, although it would probably go over my head even if it is a children's book! Good luck with keeping up the pace.

What a fantastic start. I'm sure you'll get there in 5 weeks. Is this book no. 2 so far this year? I wish I could churn out as much. Any news on the agent/publisher front or still waiting?

Still waaaaaaiiiiittttingggg (yawn)

I didn't get any more done yesterday and none today, but next week I've cleared five straight mornings so I'm aiming for (gulp) 20,000 next week, which will pretty much take me in sight of the end.

And then I can go and watch the Olympic torch pass by!

Manusha at 19:55 on 15 June 2012  Report this post
Wow, 20k in a week. But if I can manage 10k in a week I'm certain you can top 20. I hope nothing scuppers your plans to have five clear mornings next week. I look forward to seeing how you get on.

By the way, when is the torch going by you, Freebird?

Good luck with the 20k target. Love the title.

I've been sitting in Olympic emergency training this morning and found out that some of the shifts I'll be doing involve getting up at 4am to start at 5am. Yuk!
I am looking forward to 3 September.

By then, you should have written, redrafted, polished and subbed this piece. Good luck!

I'm sorry, I don't understand this phrase - it's not in my vocabulary... ;

Seriously, I don't envy you that, Sharley! By the way, what's Olympic emergency traning?

Andy, the torch is passing by us on Friday afternoon - still waiting to find out if I will be watching with 420 kids from school or whether they have enough helpers and I can sneak quietly down and watch it by myself.

Perhaps I will run along behind it, holding aloft a finished manuscript ;

phew! managed to do another 4,250 or so this morning - which takes me to a grand total of 11,900. Good start to the week, but that often happens on a Monday and then it tails off.

But my hands feel a bit achy now. Best stop before they seize up!

You're doing fabulous Sarah, great word count . No wonder your hands are a little sore after all those words. Hope the rest of your week is just as productive.

haven't done any yet this morning - I went out for a walk instead. Was feeling in need of some greenery and sea air. Saw oyster catchers, kestrel, a stoat and a beach completely empty of any footprints whatsoever.

Ahhh, I do love where I live

But now I'm home and I've got precisely 3 hours till school finishes, so time to crack on...


phew! done it, with 2 minutes to spare before I need to leave for school.

Up to 15,971 now. Bets on to see if I finish it by Friday...

Amazing wordcount. Well done. I leave this thread for a few days and the thread and wordcount expand beyond belief. Well, a slight exaggeration, but not far off!

By the way, what's Olympic emergency traning?

I am on shifts to attend the main control centre for the Dorney Lake events. Only 30k spectators are coming each day - compared to the main events - but I have to do shifts were I coordinate what is needed on behalf of the County Council. I'm one of the liaison officers who would go to a police station if there is an emergency, so the Olympics is an add-on to my role.

Anyhow, back to you. Good luck with meeting your targets. Well done on what you've achieved so far.

Freebird at 09:40 on 20 June 2012  Report this post
don;t think I'll get any done today after all - I have to go to a meeting this morning, and then I think the allotment needs some attention since it's going to tip it down for the next three days. A break won't hurt - just means it'll spill over into next week.

You deserve a break every now and then Sarah. You've done amazingly well in just the first two days of this week. Hope you enjoy the outdoors and it gives you time to wind down.

Sorry to hear about the loss of your pet. Hope the children are all right after the death of their pet. I think this sort of thing is always harder for them as death is such an abstract concept to children.

Arrgh... abject failure in the face of my target this week! This is the third day when my wordcount is zero because we're going to watch the Olympic Torch pass by this afternoon with school, and it's absolutely tipping it down so I've spent the morning buying wellies and waterproofs (any excuse for retail therapy).

But I feel like a naughty kid skiving off school - jaunting about doing other things when I'm supposed to be writing. Quite happy about it!

But I promise I'll be back at it next week (well, apart from sports days and school summer fair and....)

thanks for all good wishes. I still haven't done anything - seem to have some kind of virusy thing (from standing in the rain all friday afternoon perhaps?) that has left me with a splitting headache and a tendency to burst into tears at the drop of a hat.
Been at a friend's for tea and sympathy and now it's school sports this afternoon.

But tomorrow morning, all things being equal, I PROMISE I will get back to it. I wanted to finish it by now so I could kick back and watch Wimbledon!


well, an hour later and I've managed to do 821, which is better than nothing. At least it gets me back in the right frame of mind to pick it up tomorow!

Well, most of the CoB was written last year, so that doesn't count. It would be nearly two this year, but the first draft of Claw is pretty rubbish and will need major overhaul. I think this one has just come out almost fully formed, which has made it so easy to write.

And with a much shorter book, how much easier it is to 'see' the overall structure in my mind, all in one go.

Today sports day has been cancelled (yellow alert for thundery downpours) so I have the luxury of a whooooooole day to myself. So I plan to try and finish this draft (woohoo), do some baking, eat the product of said baking and then watch either the thunderstorms or some of Wimbledon.

Ahhhh... bliss!

No, it's open today, just lots of doors open and drying out. I think yesterday their main concern was the electrics. All the books in the library were soaked. We spent over an hour drying them, so sad as some are ruined.
But all the roads are clear and dry today, very weird. It's like yesterday never happened and we just dreamt it all.

There are loads of schools in the North East shut today due to yesterdays storm. It went as dark as night before the heavens opened. Loads of people were stranded at work (roads were closed, buses, metros and British rail trains cancelled)and a lot of properties were flooded. These are areas that don't flood, in fact my father said he hasn't seen anything like it in his 84 years. I've heard it is headed southwards, on it's way to Manchester, although that was this morning, so hopefully it has changed course and went out to sea, so the rain can't do any more damage. It's dry here today too, but we've had showers.

thanks all, I think that finishing one book (albeit a short one) in such a short time has taken away the burning desire to write the other one! It'll come back, though - in the meantime I'll keep plugging away at it. After all, we can't write in an inspired way all the time. or most of the time. A lot of it is just hard work and persistence, isn't it?

Ne'er was a truer word spoken - or a sentence written. Good luck doing what you need to do. Plugging away brings to mind the wrong sort of images. I know the meaning of plugging away, but I think of plugs or even putting plug plants in. Don't ask. I obviously got up too early.

I was determined to do a bit more on Claw today, but after squeezing out 1400 words of absolute tripe, I thought better of it and began editing a short story.

I feel in limbo till I know what's happening with Spiral Cove. Feel a bit glum and restless now Need to go for a long walk tomorrow and let the ideas flow, I think! I've never been in the position of not knowing what to write next - I've always had another project burning in the back of my mind, so it feels uncomfortable.

It's the way you said you were going for 12,000 a week and exceeded that in the first weeks.
Okay, after that life got in the way, but you then pulled yourself right back into fast writing mode and continued to (I think) the finish.

Hmm, well she said she would ring me yesterday after meeting with the publisher who's still got Mysterious Ways. She hasn't rung, and nor is she answering my e-mails! Wish I knew what was going on in her head, but I can safely assume it's either a no or still waiting longer. She knows I'm having a bit of a crisis of confidence, and I don't really want to ring her because she's got a week of meetings and I'd hate to interrupt something.

If she knows you have a crisis of confidence, she must (or I would hope) realise that keeping you waiting with no answer can only make you doubt yourself more. There's nothing worse than feeling you shouldn't chase, yet also having all your emails/calls go into a vacuum of nothingness.

I hope she comes back, even if to explain why she hasn't heard anything. More than anything I really hope something good comes along very soon. I really do.

Yes, I think come September I'll be ready to start again. Which is a big improvement on feeling like I never wanted to write again...

She still hasn't rung, but I'm feeling calmer about it. She's only human after all In fact, I feel a lot more positive about everything today. Not sure why. Maybe because I'm going on holiday tomorrow!

Ooo have a great holiday. I'm so pleased you are feeling more positive about things now. Hope she rings soon.

I'm with you there, Sarah. It's not a nice feeling at all. For me it was hard to see what could ever fill that emptiness. It does seem that we have been going through something similar at the same time (do you think we might be related!), and at last you're feeling positive again, and I am too. Yey! Enjoy your holiday.

Lol, Andy - we must be telepathic or something! Hope we can both regain our mojo and crack on again.

Saw your other thread. Great news. I'm so glad you've found your mojo and you are looking forward to cracking on with your new idea. I'm also looking forward to participating in your new thread and seeing how you progress. Good luck

Thank you! Better ditch this thread now, though haven't got a title for the other one yet!

We don't mind - Work in Prog is fine! I can't get over how the holiday and your agents interest has had such a positive effect!
