Ugh. Been using the holidays as an excuse not to open my WIP and I see this post and all my procrastination came back with a full bugle band. Now I feel guilty...

Ok, I'll open it tonight.

I've sort of made it a goal this month to try to maintain an average daily word count of 700+.

Or at least 500 as opposed to just 50.

We'll see how that goes, especially closer to the holidays.  LOL.

This morning I put in a comma.

This afternoon I took it out.

This evening I drank a bottle of Gewürztraminer.

Writing is hard.

Snowy Dan is adding to my laziness guilt! I haven't written anything in the past 4 days! Well, some notes on future chapters but I don't think they count. And I've got a February series sequel deadline! Plus my mind is playing with ideas for 2 other stories...  :icon_cry:

I'll keep track starting... today? And it's the holiday season. Oh, the drinks I will miss.

Busy week for me at work, so I've fallen behind a little when it comes to posting my daily word count. Here are my word totals for this week:

Monday          58 words
Tuesday        185 words
Wednesday   201 words
Today              TBD

I wrote 900 words today which brings me to 10,065 words for the month so far which beats my October word count of 10,002 and approaches my November word count of 10,430.

Pulled off 1,453 words last night. It's a draft but at least there's something there. Plus two chapter outlines each for WIP. Hope the trend continues. The most I was able to do in a day was 6,570 words. Draining. Slept the whole morning of the next day as a result. Nope, won't do that again.

Add: I'll report periodically - starting 13 December. Beginning to feel the itch to write again.

Four weeks into one---45k, second one---27K, left by the wayside one---30k. Ugh! I hate the middle of a story where I know I have to up the pace a bit, raise the tension level and flesh out the characters as I head towards the dramatic climax. I find it such a slog to get past the middle sometimes, that all I want to do is ditch it and move onto the next one. I love starting a book and ending one when I am over that 70k mark, but the middle...blah!

Awesome idea, it takes some of the stress of "I must write x thousands of words today" out of the subconscious beast who stops us. Butt in chair is the important part. I can stand behind 50+ a day. I tend to do at least 500-1000 in a session but this way If I'm just not 'feeling it' I know I can do 50 without even trying.

200 words so far and I hope to get to the 'twist' today.  Once that happens, I think the rest will go fast...all downhill from there! LOL

Before I posted that, I was feeling like I only wrote about 700 words but seeing it "in print" made me realize that I was much closer to 800 words than 700 words.

I am thankful for Lorri. 50+ words is no biggie and one always writes more than that when the computer is in front. That said, here's the total so far -

13th - Main series sequel: 1,453
14th - Sequel to a new series: 1,365
15th - Main series sequel: 1,919 and 1,811
16th - Main series sequel: 930

Drafts, but I hope the trend continues.

Only managed to write 120 words today, which is ten percent of yesterday's total.  Will have to try to make up for it tomorrow so I don't ruin the daily average.

I wrote 895 words today which doesn't quite make up for yesterday's poor showing but the word count of this book now exceeds the word count of my space opera I am also working on.  Also, my daily average word count is still over 700 so I'm still keeping that goal alive.  If I had written just 35 more words, I'd have hit 15,000 for the month so far.
