Good evening all. Yesterday (29th) I wrote a grand total of 347 words for the day, and today I’ve written 1101 words. Both days it’s been on the vampire book. That’s the one that is speaking to me at the moment and although this has delved into a bigger rewrite than I’d hoped fo, it’s working out for the better I think.
I’ve been doing some math, I know. Its shocking but I’ve worked out what I’ve got to write to hit my word count goal of 20,000 words a month (240,000 for the year). If I write 905 words a day, I’ll hit target. My math (which generally sucks) tells me I’ve 73,457 words for the year. That leaves 166,543 words to write between now and the end of the year. Now, the confident part of me says ‘yeah, piece of cake’. the realist in me says life gets in the way and I’m bound to write myself into a corner, or nine, before the end of the year. That said, it’s 905 words a day. I’m going to round it up to a 1000 so that I can hopefully get a few days in hand. I also have NaNoWriMo in November. I would super love to be in a position by then that if I hit the 50,000 words then I’ll pass my target for the year, but I’m not that naive. I’m not going to aim for that. I’m going to keep it simple, 1000 words a day.
I am logging out now. I’ve had a damn good weekend but it’s back to work tomorrow, and if I’m honest I’m kinda raring to go. Have a good one, folks.
