Thursday’s Count 3


Daily Wordcount: 2,877 (and still writing)
Weekly Wordcount (starting from Monday): 10,763!

Kim said I should share a snippet of my writing with you. Hmm, my first drafts are very rough usually and seldom resemble the final product.

How about I share the first sentence?

Why did her boss have to be such a pervert?

Think you’d read more?

In other news – last week our accountant finished our taxes, we’re getting a rebate, woohoo! Two days later the brakes on Gizmo Guy’s car started grinding – cost $350. Last Friday, the muffler blew out on my car so on Monday I took it in to my mechanic and told him not only to fix that, but also to give it a once over as we plan to drive it to Quebec City in a few weeks since it’s the car with the least miles. Got a phone call today. “You shouldn’t have been driving that car, the rear brake drum is busted. And your front brakes are ground right down to dust. Plus you need two new front tires.” Well, we were planning on getting new tires, they’re original to the car which has 150K on it. But the brakes were a surprise, we’d had no signs of problem with them, and we just had it checked out in October. And in case you’re thinking our mechanic’s not trustworthy, these guys are, we’ve been dealing with them for years and they’ve even done work for free. If they say the brakes need changing, they do. And they don’t sell tires, we’ll have to take it somewhere else for those. *sigh*

Why is that as soon as you have money come in, something expensive breaks and the money flows right back out again? Or is it just me?

    I like your first line. It’s a good tease 🙂

    As for money… you know what they say – easy come, easy go!!

    btw – I’m thinking I might go to the Ottawa conference. Maybe. Lot’s going on between now and then, so let’s just call it a wee spark in my brain.

    Love the first line!

    So sorry about the repairs. I need to take a trip at the end of next month and I am dreading having it looked at before hand. I know it’ll be the same for me.

    Yeah!!! on the word count. That is amazing! How far are you into the story?
