« on: September 17, 2018, 06:03:44 AM »
Going to start this off with a word count since I have been seriously slacking getting back to mine and need some accountability. Getting about 1k a day right now.. trying to get back to 2-3k!

I've hit 2.2k - 2.9k for the last five days straight. The first few days of this month were lousy (it's a new novel, always slow at the start).

I have to write 2800 per day to finish it by the 30th September, which is my set-in-stone deadline.

The only problem is, their affiliate code is still on the links, so if someone clicks the link, Kboards gets paid.

Someone reported just recently that all signatures were changed to add their affiliate code.

They always had a rule that 3rd party affiliate codes were banned, because they used their own. All the linkmakers on the site add the KB code.

Personally I link to my own website, and that's immune to having links interfered with.

Anyone can use their affiliate code here.

Or they can use mine.  grin

I posted about how to change it, if importing from KB.

I took out all the extra language and the signature line still works.

As for words, about 2.5 last night!  :smilie_zauber:

Hi all,

I've written over 3k words in the past twenty-four hours for a new story I hadn't planned to start writing. I'm writing out of sequence, just the scenes that came to me first. Such fun!

I wish I had the discipline for this. I tend to follow the writer-bulemia trend. I binge out anywhere from 5 to 10K in a giant day of insanity, then hate my keyboard for several days.

Right now I'm in editing mode, which is sooooo slow. Giving you all a big huzzah for doing it though!


Science Fiction is my game.

Ugh, I've been doing that lately--by necessity more than planning, though. I made myself a hard deadline (put up the preorder on Amazon before it was ready) and then didn't work as hard as I could have (and got sick for two weeks) so then I had to do a couple of 10k and 8k days...

:icon_think: I really need to stop killing myself like this...

I, too, am in editing mode, so yay! Mine should be finished within the week though; then on to apply beta feedback early next week, and upload final files on Thursday next week.

My joy this week, since I got sick again, is that I'll be going to see Hamlet this Saturday!  :banana:

 :icon_rolleyes: glad I'm not the only one that does that. I don't seem to be able to write linearly lately...

I need to finish this book before Halloween, so I'm in.

So disappointing.  I was hoping you'd move your "Less than 1000 words a week club" over here.   :icon_cry:

I have two novels to finish before Halloween.  I can pretty much guarantee neither one will be finished by Halloween.

Eh, we'll forgive you  :grin:

I'm not actually writing--just editing--and I'm still hanging out here  :mhk9U91:

I've got half my editing done for the day, and am about to start on the second half (I got distracted by the train wreck that is the KBoards VS TOS thread... :icon_eek: :angry:)

So I slacked all day Monday (or was it tues?.. lol) So got no words, then had to rush and catch up on wed and ended up with over 5k .. I did about 2k last night and now only have about 10k to finish the second book of Elera!! I am so excited, but ironically, not awake enough yet to be in the mood to write, so we'll see! LOL

Glad to see a revival of this topic! I'm on the last 20k of my 80k novel. I think I need a light and fluffy write after this heart-wrencher!!

3,201 for today

Okay, fail. about 1500 yesterday and today so far, though I am not done yet. I am on the last big scene and it's a tricky ending so I actually had to sit down, make graphs, and plan out the battle and other components so the ending would be spot on... so I'm working but not many words since its taking time to make sure its all going the way it should.

I'll probably never qualify for this thread so I'll just occasionally peek in, smile and wave pleasantly while filled with a burning jealous rage.

2812 so far today.

This year has been pretty abysmal for me on the writing front with the day job sucking up so much of my mental energy, but it's school holidays now, so I have 2 weeks free! Woo! Aiming for at least 2k a day, preferably 5k+

I've started a new book this week (working title "Dark Secrets and Hawthorn Hill", a Victorian Gothic Romance novel).
My goal was to write 2,500 words (semi-edited) each day.
Yesterday I clocked out on 12,502 words that I've written since Monday. This is my absolute, personal best of all time since I started writing back in 2011!

I've kept up 2.5k or above per day for two weeks now, occasionally hitting 3.5 or 4k

Only 15k to go with this novel, and 7 days until my self-imposed deadline.
