4th of October 2019

Good evening folks. I have been writing this week but my word counts have been up and down a little. On Monday I wrote 1426 words. Tuesday was 1044, Wednesday was 1065, Thursday was 261, and today I’ve written 510.

I’ve got to admit yesterday and today those numbers are a little fluffy as I didn’t track my words yesterday before I started writing today.

I’m happy with the fact that I am writing every day, but I need to get consistent with that 1000 words a day, then pick it up until I’m hitting about 1500 words a day. Then when NaNoWriMo starts I’ve not got far to go to hit the daily goal.

For NaNo I’m going to go for a short story collection like I did last year. I found this works well as when I get stuck on one story, I can just hop over to another one. The only thing different I might do is aim more for novella length pieces. I’m even thinking about rewriting some of my older short stories. I’ve got one in particular that is speaking very loudly to me. As always though, we’ll see how it goes. Last year stories that I had a lot of expectation for fizzled out while others surprised me with how deeply I got stuck into them.

Talking about those stories from last year, I really need to work on getting them tidied up. Only two of them have grown into something that is near complete. I need to work on my organisation skills.

Right, that’s it for the night. I’m going to chill out for a little while and then bed. Have a good one, folks!
