I drafted two novels in 33 days. Best day of that run: 6000 words in three hours.

Now I have to go clean up two big messes before I forget what I meant.

Also, I'm worn out. I couldn't turn around and draft a third starting tomorrow. Or next week. February? Maybe.

298 words that I'm keeping. This short story is coming slowly but it's feeling cleaner than my other WIP.

57 words last night for my current book on my phone in bed. Barely made it. Closest I've come to breaking my streak of daily writing since I started it.

86 on Christmas Eve and 50 on Christmas Day.

I almost messed up yesterday, because when I wrote those 50 I was half asleep and writing on my phone, and I swear I counted 52, but when I copied them into my doc today, it was dead on 50 words. :D Could've been 49, and what would I have done then?

317 words yesterday.

144 consecutive days of fiction writing at this point. I'm like, come on, there's no point to this at all, but if I quit, will I regret it? I don't know! So I haven't quit. :D

73 words yesterday to keep my streak alive, and boy were they hard. I probably shouldn't have waited until I was falling asleep to try to write them. It took 25 minutes to come up with them! :D (I was deleting as fast as I wrote because nothing sounds right in this scene.)

I'm managing about 500 to a thousand words a day these last two months, but I take weekends off.

Here's hoping I can keep that pace or even do better in 2020.

LOL. The trial run went better than the first day of the new year.

Seems like I should try for 606 again. I've got a pattern going... 303... 606... 303...

No point posting a month's worth of daily word counts, so I'll just sum up December by saying I wrote a total of 5,105 words in my space opera which worked out to be a daily average of 164.68 words.  Best day was 410 words on the 22nd and worst was 75 words on the 14th.

Over 96k words at this point and still not finished.

Sadly no. The good guys stopped to help the person in the pool.

A little over 1K today as I finished draft one of my short story and moved into the first round of revisions.

I've been busy updating a few more covers and working on "branding" for a social media class I'm taking.  Hopefully, I'll be back to writing today or tomorrow.

Daily writing streak is helping me get through the doldrums of January, which is usually my absolute worst month for writing. In fact, this one is on track to be my best January since I started tracking. My January average until now has been 7,011 words. This month, I've written 22,487. A little every day really does add up. :)
