Got a review done today.  Does that count towards word count? :)

Anything you're writing that's towards a project or goal counts. The point of this thread is to help people push themselves to meet goals, be it towards short stories, novels, poems, blog posts, or whatever.

Haven't written yet today though will likely update this post inline tonight when I get my writing done.

Awesome!  Cause I was totally writing the review to avoid working on my story.  ;D

Sticky-ed the topic.  Maybe that will draw more writers in. :)

I wrote about a page and a half on looseleaf today, but I've yet to transplant it onto the computer, so I can't tell how many words. And I just wrote about fifty.

Managed 1889 words today. Wanted slightly more but I realized I was rambling so called it.

Yesterday was a slow writing day, but I was under the weather and the male half of me is leaving for Utah today. T_T

So, yesterday:
-new words: 1,475
-total: 20,506

I really need to step it up for #JuneOfWriting. >_>

It's only just the starting gate! Can't exactly burn yourself out before the end, can you?

I tend to write a lot at the beginning, slag off in the middle, then blow expectations out of the water during the last quarter (where I get my 10k writing days), so I'm kind of disappointed that I didn't hit my daily quota of 2700 words a day yesterday. >_>

Not to mention being an insufferable perfectionist.

I know you'll be able to do it!

I'm just happy to write again, as the last month I was so busy between four jobs, coordinating grades with two teachers, and work around the house that I didn't get too much of a chance to sit and write. But now I'm back in the swing of things, and with school ending this month it means I can give my project the attention it sorely deserves. I'm just glad that in that time, I was able to trim up and rework my plot.

Thanks to word sprints ended the day at 2535

Leaves me at 19828 on this project, and 4424 for the month with a target of 60k by end of June. Decent start though I'd like to make up some ground this weekend as I may lose most of a week towards the end to my father coming out to Denver to visit.

Only managed 2149 for the day even with all the writing sprints Kysis got going. Less than I wanted but oh well :)

I ended up writing 1500 then deleting 1100.  Then writing some more.  Then deleting some more.  Then writing some more.

After all that adding and subtracting, I ended up with 1,477 words for yesterday.  Boo.  That was a far cry from my goal of 4k.  Plus I had deleted about 400 from the stuff I'd written the day before yesterday.

Quality over quantity is making this very slow and painstaking.

I'm not going to bother putting my word count from yesterday down, as I think I'm going to scrap the chapter and start over. :P  As soon as I figure out what exactly I'm doing with it.  :-\

2149 more words which puts me at 24047 for the novel and 8722 for #JuneofWriting. Ahead of the 60k pace but not by as much as I'd like.

Wrote 2174 words yesterday, which puts my wip up to 26,682.

7651 words so far on this June of Writing.  At this pace, however, I will only hit 57k written. *sigh* I need to pick up the pace a bit!
