1k-a-day Day 8

Okay everyone, it's a start of a new 1k-a-day week! The good news is, each week starts on a weekend. WOOHOO. The bad news, at least for me, is that I'm out of town this weekend. Make sure to still post your word counts. Tracy should be posting Day 9 tomorrow.

I checked out the great word counts for week 1. You guys rock! I was blown away. We will be announcing the winner when I get back into town Sunday evening. For those who win, all you have to do is email us at (there's a link on the side bar to your right) and list your name and address. I'll do the rest! WOOHOO!

Have a great Day 8!


Alright, fearless leader - enjoy your weekend!

I woke up this morning to a skiff of snow on the ground and a goal of 2k today to make up for my absolute lack of writing yesterday night. Sigh. Going out with friends is so much fun - but messes with my 1k-a-day schedule of no life - just write.

Tracy's Day 7 WC: 445
Tracy's overall WC: 6085

Mindset: Where's that coffee? Why do I have a headache? Oh, right. Gotta suck it up and crank out the words!

Tracy's Day 8 WC: 1602

Good luck everyone!

I've written about 1,200 words a day (monday to friday) for a few years now and while the non-fiction stuff I write feels pretty formulaic, the fiction gets better and better.

And yet I sell the non-fiction, while my fiction gets more and more strange and less and less saleable as each week passes.

Ah, well.

Hey Jane - wow - to be that consistant is wonderful. Go you!

Despite watching the last 2 DVDs of Supernatural season 2 - I managed to write in spurts today. Although I didn't make my 2k goal, at least I hung in there.

How'd everyone else do?

I had another good day of writing. My new book, I didn't want to stop, which is a true accomplishment in itself. I got 3068 words on that one. On my WIP I got 2011 words.

Grand total today: 5079

I am really happy about my progress today. While I did not work on my NaNo WIP, I did finish the short story I was writing before NaNo started. I wrote 3016 words today brining my overall total so far up to: 11580.
