Progress and Writing Music: Days of the New – Now

DebE —  October 23, 2011 — Leave a comment

Been quiet in here, huh? Well, that would be because I have been busily working on the WiP. Over the last three days I have been churning out about 700-1000 words per day on average (crazy, aye?) , although, a lot of those have been edits, which have required deleting old stuff… so, my overall total is only creeping up. But, it’s about quality, not quantity, right? Today I have 742 words that I plan to keep.

So, what’s with this productivity? Well, I think I would have to credit The Canaries with a little – thanks to last week’s challenge (and result). But, on top of that, I have made a new friend over at WdC who has given me a huge boost in confidence in myself. She read over my outline last week and was really positive about my plans for my story. And since then we’ve had a little back and forth about writing experiences in general, and suddenly I just don’t feel so alone in this whole thing. It’s invigorating.

Anyway, I just felt like sharing this (ignore the video, it’s the music that matters):

Oh, and since it is the 23rd October 2011, and the Rugby World Cup final just played (and we won), I will add: Go the All Blacks!! (Although, I have one question… what ever happened to The Feelers “Right Here, Right Now” cover for the competition?)




Deb E was born in New Zealand’s North Island, but her parents corrected that within months, moving south to Dunedin and staying there. Childhood nights were spent falling asleep to cover versions of Cliff Richard and the Shadows and other Rock ’n Roll classics played by her father’s band, and days were spent dancing to 45 LPs. Many of her first writing experiences were copying down song lyrics. She graduated to scientific reports when she studied a nematophagus fungus in the Zoology department of the University of Otago, trading all traces of popularity for usefulness… then traded both for fiction. Mum of one human & four fur-babies.
