The Any Words a Day Club
« on: September 25, 2018, 06:59:53 AM »
I enjoyed a similar thread over in the forum that shall not be named and wanted to start a new one.


This thread is to log any words you might write in a day, generally for those that don't write consistently large numbers or are even able to write every day! But those of you who do are welcomed too. Don't feel intimidated by large numbers!


If you happen to have a day where your written words are actually less than you started with, that's all good too! We all have them.


I can't write every day as I often work 12hr shifts, but I try and get a little done on my breaks if I'm able to.


So to start us off, today I managed to write this post; 132 words!

Glad to see this again because I'm definitely not consistent.

Yesterday's count is 1,059.

Today's count is 0 but the day's not over yet.

Right now my actual new words being written is zero. I'm going through a final edit on my next novel that I hope to hit the Publish button on by the end of this month. Only about 50K words left to edit.  :HB

I'm in the editing stage too, so word count is 0 at the moment. Funny thing is , I often end up adding more words than I take away  :icon_think:


I'm hoping to get editing finished and book up for sale mid-end October.

I was editing my latest novel, getting it ready publishing and realized I needed one more chapter. So, I got 1524 words in and still need another 1000-1500.

I wrote words today! For the first time in months!  :heart:
Not only did I get 398 words down on the story, I might have written twice that in my notes since I finally figured out how to kill my villain  grint

I'm going to take this small victory and pretend I haven't procrastinated on it for most of 2018  :hehe
Crazy owl lady. I also occasionally write Fantasy books, but the owl is really all anyone cares about.

Got 1.5k yesterday, finished my new version of Chapter one (bumping my ORIGINAL version of it down to chapter three). 42k words total of which I'm sure at least a thousand are comments in * for things I need to check later for doubling or continuity and whatnot.

I seem to be on a roll with my novella at last. The goal is 20k and I had about 9k by last week after not working on it for like, forever. Now I'm up to 13k.

Glad it's not only I who feels that way. I reach it on everything I write. Makes it so difficult to actually finish anything!

Just slogging away on the last of my words today. Will report back soon.

1075.

I'm starting a new story today. (Finished my last story yesterday, so I want to keep up the momentum.) It's slow going, but once I warm up, I'm sure it'll go faster. Or at least I think I'm sure. Or I think I think I'm sure.

Is anyone else afraid each time they start a new story that they'll have forgotten how to write a book? Or is it just me? :tap

I have a target of 500 today; we'll see how it goes!
