Okieday! I’m here, this post is on time, things are good!
Monthly Total of Fiction Words
Oh, who am I kidding? It was the best month of the year! I kicked the ass of the words so hard, and I want lots and lots and lots more of months a million times better than that, but the next couple could be in that range and I would be happy. I could make it work, as they say on the show on the television in front of me.
Because right now I’m not writing fiction and so I can watch TV!
Best Week Ever
Week 34 – 12,321
Can numbers be palindromes? Because I just realized that week was a palindrome. Well, anyway, it was an amazing week. I had two 2K+ days, and two 1.5K+ days and those are what pushed me over for sure. I could totally get used to those.
Oh, wait, I kind of did! Because the number two week ever was the very next week, and that one held a 5K+ day and a 2K+ day.
Take that, writer’s block!
I started a new blog in August, and I haven’t been back in a week or so because I was focusing on my fiction, but I want to get back to it. But if it dies because I only have the energy for fiction and that’s where it all goes? So be it.
- Finish 004, currently untitled, 26,363 words
Write more than 10,000 in one week
- Write more than 1,000 words every day for a month
I’m kind of sure August won’t be that month, but I’ll still try.
- Write 1,667 words per day in a month that isn’t November
I got one goal done! 😀 I had to put 004 on pause to focus on a different genre which I write under a pen name. I started 005, which I have not yet finished, and 006, which I did finish and publish. I’m working hard on 005 right now, and anticipate finishing it tonight or tomorrow.
I’m just so tired.
- Write 1,667 words every day in a month that isn’t November
I have three months left to achieve this, so I might as well make it this month. It’s a warm-up.
- Write and publish two shorts under my pen name every week
- Finish 004
This may get pushed into October, if I’m honest. We’ll see – if I finish 005 and manage goal #2 early every week, I’d have time to write more on 004. We’ll just see how it plays out.
I don’t need more goals for September. I’m so tired right now it’s silly. I am so glad the kids are back in school and the first week is over and I have some time to sleep. I’ll be doing a lot of it this weekend, I really hope.
That’s it! All wrapped up! I will see you again tomorrow!
