Since then, I have been back to work on my manuscript The Wishing Box and have come close to meeting my daily word goal of 500 words per day. It is tough because I am revising and sometimes I cut more words than I write; regardless, my aim is to INCREASE my word count by 500 words per day. Tuesday I eked out only 310, but yesterday I did 599 and today I hit 535, pushing my total word count to over 60,000, closer than I have ever been to my final goal of approximately 85,000 words. This feels GREAT!
I am also keeping up with my homework in Kelly Stone's online writing class, Empower Your Muse. This has been such a powerful experience; more on that later. But yesterday, Kelly shared an amazing video with us that I am going to pass on to you here. Warning: Have a tissue handy! You might need it!
