1k-a-Day: Day 30

Well, my friends, it is the final day of our 1k-a-day challenge. This has been such a cool experience. I want to thank everyone for hanging with us and hope we'll see you again in a few months when we hold our next 1k-a-Day.

Tracy's Day 29 WC: 1074
Tracy's overall WC: 23, 306

Mindset: Drained and really winding myself up to get in my 1k today...I feel a bit whimpy saying that, considering we have writers who wiped their noses with my overall word count weeks ago. But life is thundering on, there's a ton of Christmas baking to start and a neglected house to clean. Tomorrow. Today I write.

Tracy's Day 30 WC: 1083
FINAL 1k-a-day challenge TOTAL: 24, 389
Congrats and thanks to everyone who participated!
How'd you do, Tami?

Thanks for starting the post today, Tracy! Love the banner you made! Anyone who participated, feel free to post it on your site/blog, etc. I, too want to thank everyone for participating not only in the 1k-a-day challenge, but the Big Questions. I had a blast this month even though I didn't do as much as I would have liked. It pushed me to write more than I would have, with the holidays upon us. We hope to do this again in the future (hopefully a few times a year) and hope that you join us again. Next time we won't have NaNoWrimo to push us, but that's why it's called a challenge, right?

My main goal this month was to push through the tough parts of Lost and Found. Though I'm still there, I've resolved problems that I might not have without 1k-a-day. I hope you all were able to accomplish what you set out to do. Congrats to all of our winners. Congrats to anyone who sat down to even write just 1,000 words. You're all winners in my book.

Don't forget that the Big Question #3 will end today at 6pm PDT. We will be announcing the winner tonight!

To all winners in the past, your books went out to you yesterday. Please let us know when you received them. Enjoy!

Tami's Day 30 WC: will update later with my final 1k-a-day total
Tami's overall WC for 1k-a-day: I need to add it up again. somewhere in the 14,000s

I LOVED participating in the 1k-a-Day Challenge. Some days, I did not write, but I did, however, get the writing DONE, :-)

Today's word count: 3,722
Week 4 word count: 20,637
Overall November word count: 71,086

Next goal? To finish this novel up - about 20k more to go!

Astounding total you got there. Glad our challenge helped in some small way - it certainly lit a fire under me.

Get that novel done! :)

Awesome job, Chick Lit Gurrl!!

I also had a blast! Thanks so much for putting this on!

I posted my overall total on yesterday's post, but it doesn't matter, CLG beat me this week :)

Thanks, Tracy...Denise. I'm almost sad to see November go, but I'll be trying to get a full draft done by Christmas now, :-)
