1k-a day- Day 1

And we're off! Don't forget to post your starting word count in today's comment section. I look forward to writing with you and giving books away for the next 30 days! Good luck!

Below are my stats so far. I've basically added 30k words (1k a day for 30 days) to my word count to give me an end goal of 54,692.

Tami's work in progress: Lost and Found
Starting word count for 1k-a-day: 24 692

Words written today: 1,030 (Okay, not great but at least it was 1,000!)

Tracy's contribution for Day 1

All righty, Tami - I'm ready to rumble with ya.

Since I'm spreading my writing for this challenge over two current WIPs, and an edit for Under My Skin, my goal is just to write at least 1k period - for whichever book takes my fancy - 1k for all three would be groovy - but I don't think it will happen often....if at all. :)

So my starting word count is easy.

It's a big fat zero.

Words written today: loggin in at 1267 for today! Whohoo!

Hopefully this contest will scare a few words out of me.

I'm in.

My starting word count is 37,608.

Here's to finishing this baby by the end of November!

Okay, I'll play.

I have lofty goals for November. I have a WIP that I'm under a bit of pressure to finish. I also had a new story idea that woke me up in the middle of the night last night and didn't let me go back to sleep. So I'm deciding to do this and Nano. Maybe.

WIP starting word count is 21,001 (goal 60k)
New work starting word count: 0
(goal 50k)

words written today:
WIP: 2809
New: 1667

I don't expect to get these kind of word counts everyday. It was only because I was up most of the night that I got so much done today. Best of luck to everyone else on meeting their goals!

Hey there, :-)

OK, I'm in.

I'm working on a new project, so my STARTING WORD COUNT is ZERO.

WORDS WRITTEN TODAY...still working, so far, I'm at 3,300 words.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction! I'd love to participate.

I'm starting a new project, so my starting word count is 0. My overall goal is to complete the work itself and have it turn out more than 50,000.

Today I have written 1270 words.

I won't be able to start my 1k-a-day for several days, unfortunately, so I'll have to play catch-up later.

What a great contest! My starting wordcount is 37,627, but the goal word count is 80,000.

Is it too late to join in the fun? If not, my starting count is 0. I'll post my week's count tomorrow.

Now, does that include words written tomorrow, like, in the afternoon/evening? Do we have a deadline for finishing our words and reporting back?
