Slightly less word count

May 6, 2010 at 4:30 pm (Uncategorized)

Yesterday was not as stellar a writing day as Tuesday. And today is well non-existent (woke up with a massive headache). Yesterday the words just didn’t want to come. I know that’s going to happen sometimes, but I need to make sure I don’t start using it as an excuse. Part of the reason for talking about my writing publicly like this is to keep me at it. I figure if I talk about it then I’ll be accountable to it.

I know in the end the only person who matters in this writing venture is me. Writing is my dream and it’s up to me to succeed or not. The power is in my hands to do something about this.

Total word count so far: 7146

Today’s word count totals

May 5, 2010 at 3:45 am (Uncategorized) (, , , )

Today was a good writing¬† day. Since I’m still only beginning to take my writing seriously and making it a priority in my life, I’m starting with relatively low word count goals. My aim is to write 1,000 words a day. Today I was able to crank those words out pretty quickly. Unfortunately I had to leave for school or might have tried to ride that wave. I also came up with a much better opening line while in my car on the drive home tonight. I was so excited I raced straight to my bedroom and my laptop, opened my WIP and got it in there immediately before I risked forgetting it. Hopefully tomorrow will be another great day.

WIP total word count: 6,523
