August Lookback (2017)

This month started off with me wrapping up the final few words of the fan fiction piece I’ve been playing with for the last couple of years before I moved on to a story I’ve been thinking about for a while. I’ve had it relatively well outlined but I’ve found I’ve deviated from that outline but not like I have done in the past, and it’s adding to the larger plot of what I hope will be a trilogy when it’s done. I’m now back on track with the outline now.

Numbers wise, I’ve written 12,335 words for the month. That’s an average of 397 words a day. I only had five days where I didn’t write.

For the year I’ve written 83,116 words so far. That’s about 10,000 a month and well below my target of 20,000 words a month. I’ve not hit the 20k a month yet this year. One of my goals for the rest of the year is to hit that 20k a month.

Writing with pen and paper is a slower way to write for me but I like how I write when I write longhand.

I’m happy with how August has ended. It’s been a good month and I’m enjoying the story I’m working on now. Bring on tomorrow and more words.
