Counting words …


… is what I think writing is all about sometimes. And it’s nice to know I’m not the only one.

The lovely Lisa Heidke, author of Lucy Springer Gets Even (Allen and Unwin) and What Kate did Next (Allen and Unwin), has just done a really good round up on the writing process for her blog. Lisa compares notes with Fleur McDonald, Kylie Ladd and one other person who obviously went a bit off track (for some reason, I only got as far as explaining my pre-first-draft stage before busting out my word limits). You can check it out here.

And coming soon, Lisa is going to answer a few questions for the process part of this blog about the writing of What Kate did Next and how she’s dealing with the hoo-hah it seems to be stirring up. So stay tuned …
