Day 5: 921 Words!

April 24th, 2015 by Steve

Another day, another 921 words, another moment singing the praises of Chuck Wendig’s slow but steady wins the race philosophy.

So, after five days I’m up to a total wordcount of 3,674. The weekly goal is 1,750 (350 words per day). So I’m averaging 734 words every day. Not bad, not bad. I’m going 80% beyond the threshold, as it were, but I’m also stupid excited about this whole thing, as you might have guessed. If I keep going at this rate I’ll have my 91k in less than 25 weeks (if I’m doing the math right, which I very well may not be).

The last two days have been uber-productive. If you’ve got cops in your story, make them interview people. Nothing ups a wordcount like talking to the police. Give it a shot.
