Only 55 words written today, but busy day.  Not for writing, obviously.

I finished my current wip last night, so today I've started editing. Does -48 words count for anything?

Managed to carve out the entire morning for writing. Best day I've had in six months: 1129 words.

Thank you @Lori Moulton for starting this thread. Setting a reasonable goal (at least 50+ words a day) got me started again after a two-month hiatus. Most grateful to you.

Only 90 words today.  Also, I made the discovery that at some point I started referring to the main character by his nickname rather than his name.  Oy.

Stuck in editing.  This is what happens when you start a story one Christmas and try to finish it the next! LOL

I wrote 180 words yesterday and 210 words today.

My space opera, on the other hand, is largely stalled.  Writing a few words here and there each day but not making a lot of progress on it, whereas on this fantasy story (the one I'm counting for this thread) I've written 5,845 words for the month so far.

Though with only eight days left in the month, I'm not sure I'll best October's 10,002 words written.  I'd have to write an average of 520 words a day to match.

Thanks.  I still work on the space opera every day, but I'm lucky to get more than a few words each day.

Wrote 685 words today.  Three days to write at least 1,953 more.

Also, I finally broke the 50k mark on my space opera.  Well, not quite.  I'm not sure how much of the word count is notes.  Regardless, the word count is over 50k, so I'll take it even if it is with an asterisk.  LOL.

Only 130 words written today, making for near impossible odds of November beating October in terms of word count.

I wrote 1,000 words today in the wee hours of the morning.  Thought perhaps I'd do more this afternoon but that didn't happen.

Anyway, that put me at 10,430 words for November which just beats out October's 10,002 words.

Three days of updates here. grint

Saturday, December 1st: 615 words
Sunday, December 2nd: 485 words
Monday, December 3rd: 840 words

October Average: 322.6 words per day
November Average: 347.7 words per day
December Average so far: 646.7 words per day

I very much doubt I'll be able to maintain that pace. :shocked:

Again, I'm only keeping track of one WIP here.

And I really need to finish the stories for my newsletter which will come out later this month.  I thought I had one or two finished already, but I checked the other day and four out of four stories aren't done.  Very bad.
