"51,000 by day 100. So way behind on the challenge but found it really did make me write (almost) every day and that in itself made me keep going on the WIP, even when my plot refused to move forward. I'd love to know how…"
"Well done, Lynne. I lost a lot of writing time editing and preparing a submission and fell well behind my schedule. However, I have been writing like crazy at the weekends and have clawed my way back to 63K by day 71. I'm doggedly determined to…"
Today I reached 30K+ - next milestone 50K, hopefully by the end of March, day job permitting. Behind schedule I know, but liking the way my WIP's plot is turning out (which is totally not the way I thought…"
Thank you to Kate Allan for inviting me to set up this group here at the Festival of Romance Site. Starting January 1st 2012 and ending April 9th 2012 I am going to be running a challenge to write 100,000 words in 100 days. That's 1000 words a day. Or 7000 words a week. Full details are on my blog (linked below) and I've also written a post suggesting what you can do with 100k words.…See More
"Only managed a miserable 3K this week (and all on Sunday!) but ...drumroll... have completed draft 1 of WIP. Feel like turning a cartwheel (except I don't want to end up hospitalised!). Lots of redrafting ahead. Roll on next weekend…"
"I know what you mean about 20K being a milestone - I got there on Thursday and felt I'd really got into my WIP, but Friday and Saturday saw me wrestling with my plot and no actual writing! Hopefully being snowed in today will give me…"
"That's great Susan! Am envious of you now - had hoped to do lots more this week but had a lot of other work to contend with! Still, here's hoping for a few more days of writing time.
Right now I'm on 18,299. Will try and hit 20k…"
"Very busy time at work with preliminary exam (mocks) marking & reporting to parents so too tired at night to write (or think). I am relying on weekends to catch up and will try my very best. Happily I have a long weekend coming up (4…"
"Feeling rather self-satisfied. Considering there were 14 days in which I wrote nothing at all, due to my son's emergency op abroad, I am currently at 26,500 words by day 28. I hope to make up the deficit tomorrow. Come hell or high water... How…"
"Planning a marathon write-fest, this weekend ( to make up for working-week). I will let you know how I do. Due to son being taken into a remote clinic in Mexico, for an emergency appendectomy, I have done little writing through worry. He is home now…"
Hi Sally, I wondered whether you would like to set a group up here for your 100K in 100 days project - might well be a lot of folks on here who would be interested to take part, and chat about progress as they go etc.
