#ThursdayWriteUp 2 – Kindle-ing wood be my excuse

The clouds have retreated and the temperature’s dropped a bit. It’s that beautiful time of year when I get to switch the thermostat to “off” and have all the windows open by sunrise. Perfect weather for getting things done, and I’m not one to ignore that opportunity. I’ve had an enormously productive week!

Well, sort of.

I’ll go straight to word count:

Um… a few. Somewhere between 2-3,000 (productive) words. As we all know, in reality, we actually tap out more than our final word count by the end of it all. (TypeTypeType – Highlight – DELETE!)

That said, I didn’t actually do much deleting this week. My “tap count” was really that low.

Why? Part of it can be blamed on the beautiful weather – perfect for home improvement type projects like this:

The rest I will shamelessly blame on three new things I purchased this week: Pressfield’s “the War of Art”, Clare Davidson’s “Trinity” and my new Kindle (Yes, I finally joined the modern age this last weekend.)

Yep. I’ve been reading more than writing this week and I don’t feel bad about it either! My desire is to achieve the legacy of a great writer so I look to them for inspiration and guidance.

“Read everything–trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You’ll absorb it. Then write. If it is good, you’ll find out.” – William Faulkner

There you have it. My excuse(s) for not making much progress on my WIP this week… on paper. 😉

I will leave you with that while I move to the porch and begin working on my #FridaySnippets post for tomorrow.

What do you think? What was your week like? Let me know in the comment section below and, if you’re on Twitter, every week at the #ThursdayWriteUp. I’d love to hear from you!

Have a great week and thanks for spending time with me!
