Sorry this is a day late, but I was writing into the night last night and this post slipped my mind.
As I’ve told you, I am participating in the 50k in 30 days challenge organised by the Romance Writers Of Australia. Writing 50k in 30 days is so much harder than I thought it would be. My respect for people who complete NaNo has tripled. You are all awesome. Life decided to get crazy, so I haven’t been able to write as much as I would like.
Here’s what my writing week looked like last week –
The 17th – no words. This is really bad when you are competing in a 50k in 30 day challenge.
The 18th – 202 words. Not so good, but better than the day before.
The 19th – 1,928 words. Much better. If only I could have kept this up.
The 20th – 75 words. 0.o what? But I did get a review out, but I don’t count those words toward my 50k.
The 21st – I was editing a short story because it was due the next day, so no official words, but a very productive editing day 🙂
The 22nd – 2707 words. Needed a lot more days like this.
So overall it was worse than my normal writing week and I’m suppose to be writing MORE than my normal writing week. Sigh.
For the challenge I have written 22,961 words out of 50,000. Nowhere near as much as I would like. I am still going to try and make it though. Crazy, maybe, but I don’t like to lose. Anything less than 40,000 and I’ll feel like a failure.
I have been working mainly on my Middle Grade novel. I also wrote a bit of The Girl In The Mirror. And I edited and sent a short story away.
That’s it from me. I’m going to attempt to write 3,500 words everyday for the next seven days. Fingers crossed.
How about you? How was your writing week? I love hearing from you, so don’t be shy.
