Organization and Excuses

There were some great suggestions last time I asked how to organize my running memoir. I tried Liz's suggestion, but I'm not organized enough yet for separate documents. My outline is all over the document, as I try to figure out exactly what the hell I am doing. Maybe when I figure that out, I'll be able to create a solid outline.

Christina suggested headings, so I tried that today using the Bookmark Tool in Word. So far, I like this method because it's all in the same document and I can more easily keep track of my word count.

So finally, I have a total word count to share. It looks like I did a lot compared to last week, but I really only wrote maybe 500 words. It was a tough week. We got a puppy last weekend and T Junior has been sick for two weeks. This week it was a stomach virus and diaper rash. Plus, running and I've been busy at work.

Wow, that sounds like a lot of excuses.

Total Word Count as of 4/22/10:
Running Book: 11,521
Children's Truck Book: I'm not going to list this one for now; I'm not working on it.

  1. Wonderful job! I never thought of using the bookmark tool - but I use pages so I'm not sure it does that... hmmm, I'll have to play around.


Write something. Anything.
