One Million Words

At the beginning of the year, I decided I was going to write 1,000,000-words. 2013 became the year of a million words. And I set about tapping away at daily, weekly and monthly goals.

As of 2:51pm yesterday afternoon. I met that goal!

The words that qualified were any of the things I typed into a story (short fiction, novella, novels...)This blog post would not have counted, emails, etc. I wanted one million words of fiction. And I got there.

I think it's still sinking in.

An Update. Or, I Technically Finished NaNoWriMo Yesterday.

Words Written: 19,788

I don’t recall what I was distracted by last Friday to keep me from getting to green, but Wednesday was a jumble because I was sorting out publishing stuff for TBFM and getting the word out (however marginally). Regardless of that, I technically won NaNo yesterday. My current count for the month of November is 50,206.
What’s even more exciting than that is that I’m under 10k-away from hitting my Million Words in a Year goal!
Unfortunately, I’m not a writer of few goals, and to get Book 2 of Flynn out in February like I’d like to… I have to finish the first draft before the end of November. That means I need to buckle down and get focused. Not something that is easy to do with the approaching holidays!

What I read this week:
Curtsies and Conspiracies by Gail Carriger
Wrayth by Philippa Ballantine


Random thought of the week:
This week, I realized a few things. The one I’m going to talk about is one that should have been obvious to me for a long time.
I love writing …

First Update for November

Image
It's here. The last of my recorded writing months (I already know December is a bust and I'm not the sort to set myself up for failure.

If you notice over in the corner over yonder (------>) I've gotten to 97%

But let's talk about this week.

Words Written: 30,418

Books Read: 1 (Neruomancer)



We're officially into November... and that mean's I'm almost at the point of the year when my brain decides to flop out of my head onto the concrete and all I can do is stare at it until after the new year. I'm in a mad dash to get through my Million W/C goal, and to get a first draft finished.

So yeah! Hopefully I can keep up the pace and get to that wonderful number in time!
