The kids are on school holidays, and when they are on holidays I don’t get as much writing done as usual. So this holidays, thanks to a suggestion from a blogging friend, I challenged myself to write 10k. (Two weeks.)
The daily totals so far:
Monday 22nd September I wrote 771 words.
Tuesday 23rd September I wrote 596 words.
Wednesday 24th September I wrote 202 words.
Thursday 25th September I wrote 1088 words.
Friday 26th September I wrote 338 words.
Saturday 27th September I wrote 1098 words.
Today I edited and posted episode four of my YA sci-fi The Amberly Chronicles.
Bringing my total to 4093 words.
Which leaves 8 days to write 5907 words – roughly 739 words a day. Hopefully that’s doable. It really has helped challenging myself.
I can’t wait for October 1st. I’m going to start a new draft of my YA epic fantasy. The ideas have been simmering and I’m actually really excited about jumping into it. I won’t be able to work on it as much I would like for the first week of October because of the school holidays, but as soon as the kids go back I am going to dedicate a lot of time to it because I want the draft done in a month.
That’s it from me, how about you? How was your writing week?
