2310 today.

An average of 2678 over my five days away from the day job.

I now have five 12 hour shifts to face over the rest of the week, so no more words now until Monday :(  So sad as I really got on a roll there!

Exactly 40 words today. That's a new low for me except when it's 0.

Managed to sneak in 405 words this evening. 

Definitely won't be able to do that again until Monday - taking medical emergency calls during nights of a weekend is not conducive to writing during my breaks.  Will probably be trying to catch 10 mins of snoozing during them.

Somewhere around 800 words. I forgot to check the count exactly.

There's always something to research, isn't there. Just when you think you've got it all, you write something that you have to check back on.  :shrug

1420 this morning.

On the contrary, I first check the facticity of the world building before I write!

I stop the moment the current Scene In Progress (SIP) exposes my ignorance on certain aspects that would make the narration more real and enjoyable. I can waive off these things s little bit if it is a fantasy story. But that liberty cannot be taken for other genres excepting perhaps horror.

I really don't allow myself to get uptight about the total WC for the WEP session as long as I hit a minimum of 500. Actually, the WC depends on the scope of the present scene right? I try to show more if think the WC can be increased without overdoing or boring.

Happy writing! :tup3b

Absolutely.

580 today plus messing around with downloads from my AlphaSmart.

First, nothing at all happened. Then I realized it might be the cable. Switched cables and the file downloaded to Word. Then I sat down to write, but the words weren't appearing on the screen or were very, very delayed. Hmmm. So, what do the IT people tell you to do first? Turn it off and turn it on again. Yup, that worked, but all that took up most of my writing time.

Maybe I can carve out an hour later on.

Yesterday I managed a whole 73 words!

Today I got myself back into the swing and managed 2877.

I'm 1950 above where I planned to be so far this week  Grin  Long may it continue that way while I have two weeks off work (although I have a lot of decorating planned  :doh:

I'll put it on record that my WIP (working title "Otherwise") is currently at the 11 862 work mark.  This thread will probably serve to remind me how regularly I fail to reach my theoretical target of 1000 words a day! But, of course, it is all about letting the story write itself in its own time. Although finishing a project is good too. I have at least two unfinished novels on file.

Definitely on a roll.

483. I had to stop and do some more research. It's frustrating when the research is contradictory. I feel an author's note coming on.

Ugh, I ended up deleting most of what I wrote today (almost 1100 words gone!)

I still managed a gain of 298 words though. Could have been worse. And I'm in the right place to carry on tomorrow :)

Nothing but research today but I finally got the conflicting info resolved. With all the new info I've found, I'm going to have to do a lot of inserting into what I've already written. That's a good thing. It will move the story along nicely.

Now at 13 712 words. You will see why I didn't sign up to the 2K words a day thread!

It takes me about a year to write a book. I have nothing but admiration for those who take part in NaNoWriMo and can write a novel in a month!

Moving everything back in today, so hopefully more words on the way :)

I forgot to check my word count yesterday but it's somewhere up around 1400.

My dog and I have reached an understanding. He can cuddle up to me and rest his head against my alphasmart as long as his ears don't cover any essential keys. Maybe now I can get a few more words in at home.

I managed 3026 today, but I think that a bunch are going to end up being scrapped tomorrow. I'm thinking my second scene would be better from the Hero's POV rather than the heroines.  Oh well.

I've set myself a target of 500 words every day in 2019. And it doesn't matter if those words are spread over more than one story (I have numerous wips).

I'm unofficially starting today and reached 936 words (spread over two different stories).
