Obsessively counting words

“Let him that would move the world, first move himself.” ~Socrates

Believe me, I am trying. 😉

I’m in the middle of my next novel, another paranormal romance, and the writing isn’t going as quickly as I’d like. After each session, I found myself checking the word count. It’s adding up…slowly. Very slowly.

It’s not that I need a particular number of words. I just know what the minimum count has been for my other novels. DREAM WALK was the longest I’ve had published to-date — over 95k words. This novel needs to be at least 85k for it to be complete. You get a feel for these things after you’ve written a few stories from beginning to end. 😉

But lately I haven’t been able to get into my writing zone. That means the words are coming at a snail’s pace when I need to be working more along the lines of a cheetah. Well, I suppose I should be glad my episode of writer’s block is over. Just have to keep things moving along.
