1k-a-day Day 7

Okay everyone! Today is the big day. Don't forget to post your weekly word count by 11:59PM PST TONIGHT to be entered into this week's free books contest. We'll be giving a book to the top TWO word counts this week because YOU GUYS ROCK. Here are the books up for grabs this week. Winners get to choose!

Have a great day everyone! I look forward to seeing the amazing counts for week 1!

Tami's day 6 word count:
1,014
Tami's November word count: 6,176
Overall word count: 30,868
Cups of coffee drank: Okay, I've decided to change this since most of the Halloween candy is gone. BOOOOoo! I drank 2 cups of coffee and had chocolate covered coffee beans for dessert tonight. Do those count?
Music: Death Cab For Cutie...can never go wrong with these guys.
Mindset: I was pretty busy at work today and had plans tonight. Not a good mix. I also write my blog posts for Fridays on Thursdays (if only those words counted toward my goal!) So, enough with excuses. I'm ashamed I didn't do better today.
Tami's day 7 word count: will post my word count later
Tami's Week 1 word count: will post my weekly word count tonight!


Okay Tracy! How did you do yesterday?

Well, we were both in a slump yesterday - but at least you met the goal, Tami. I didn't quite make it. Have fun this weekend, but try to write, too! This daylight savings thing makes me sleepy at 7pm. I hate it. Maybe I'll have to start fak'n'baking to get some sun in my life.

Tracy's Day 6 WC: 804
Tracy's overall WC: 5640

Mindset: This morning I've been writing since 5am and hopefully I'll sneak in some coherent words when I get home tonight. The weekend is mine to write, write, write and so I hope to get close to 2000k on Saturday and Sunday.

Tracy's Day 7 WC: 445

I'm pretty sure that this is supposed to be since Nov. 1? If that's the case my word count for the week is...

14,093.

Number of nervous breakdowns:

1

Doing fairly well on both fronts, I guess.

Tami Klockau said...

Yep, from November 1st to today.

Today's total (between both books): 4093

This week's grand total: 29,728

I know I should keep writing and make it an even 30k, but I just can't do it. Not tonight.

Thanks so much for putting on this contest. It's totally helped me keep my motivation!

OK, kinda sad...didn't break the 20k, but today was a tiring day. So much so, I know I'm sleeping IN, and I'm not sure I'll want to wake up tomorrow!

Starting word count: 0
Today's word count: 2,606
Overall word count: 19,072
