Mitosis Word Count Tracker

This post is where I will keep track of the daily  word count for Mitosis, the second in The Alchemist series. Just finished Birth of a Princess yesterday. Today I spent the day working on the page for this book and this word count post. Tomorrow I will begin the actual writing. This story will pick up right where we left off with Cessation. Mayyyybe 10-30 minutes later. It will be fun, I’m excited to begin this one as it’s been gnawing at me for quite a bit, and I look forward to seeing if Cody gets a happily ever after like I HOPE to see. But then we (writers) don’t force characters into our world, we write theirs, so I don’t really know what’ll happen.

As usual, I don’t go into this with a heavy outline either. I have a few bullet pointed thoughts and thoughts to do, but the overall story will come as it comes. Just doesn’t work well for me if I force myself to sit down and outline something heavily before I begin, or even know what the story is.

Commonly asked: How long do you write each day? Approximately one hour, give or take. M-F and occasionally the weekends.

  1. You only write for one hour each day? Wow…it is scary to think what you would do with a couple hours daily 😉

    Hope that all is well. Nice to see you online a bit more.

    Take care, Joe

    1. Thanks, Joe. 🙂 On average, I write 1000 – 3000 words so I’d imagine I could finish a book in very little time! Lol I am trying to up that time a little too so we’ll see if I can. I keep thinking of cutting back my editing time by an hr and replacing it with writing.
