405 words of fresh prose. Hopefully time to write up some notes later as well.

Woohoo you bunch of super productive people! Yesterday I wrote a couple of pages... and that's great considering it's very short stories but, ah! the magic of writing in a booknote... No clue how many words it was!  ;D
Enough to make me happy. Working very early on today so I'll be lucky to come up with anything!

Oh, nice thread. Good for keeping people accountable! I wrote about 500 words yesterday. Hardly anything, but I haven't written regularly since ... February? March? Got plunged into the Black Hole of Homework (*shakes fist at college*) and only recently am I able to have a little of that mysterious commodity--Free Time. Hoping to keep this up, even if it's less than 1k a day!

And @Silicon, there's the "How much didn't you write today" thread in which we post how we've been avoiding writing... especially since posting there is a form of avoiding writing  ;) ;D

Meanwhile, I did write 1,650 words yesterday and polished them down to 1,500 today, finishing third draft of my fairy tale story for the Monthly Contest. Once of these days, I'll finish something other than Xiagan's d*mn wonderful contest!

LOL I'll have to check that out. I'm sure in no time at all I'll be a regular in that thread  ;)

Haven't written anything today yet, but I am determined to get AT LEAST 500 words (so, 2 word wars) in by the evening. Somehow.

EDIT: 578 words! Whoo! It's mostly all nonsense, but fun nonsense :D

Show off.  ;) ;D

I'm really in no position to show off. This week has been more productive than the rest of the year. Still, onwards and upwards 563 today.  :D

Around 400 yesterday, but I really like the end result. I'm going to keep it a standalone flash I think.

There's so many forum contests going on around, I have to get on top of those! Definitely writing tonight ... I'll see if I can come up with an idea for "Fairytales"!

Barely 300 words yesterday but damn proud of them, I was so stuck for days! If I can manage as much today it'd be brilliant!

Ugh. Maybe 1.5k words yesterday, flailing around and trying to make a story work for another forum challenge. WHY, why does it hate me? The characters are flat and boring, the setting is dull, and I have no plotline that's more than "This is the ending and ... I don't know how to get there."

I didn't rage-delete all my words last night, but it was a near thing.

Going to attempt version 3.0 today ... hopefully I've already made all my mistakes and it'll go nice and smoothly this time? (I can always hope!)

620.

Better than the last few days, anyway. Keep on hammering, I say, keep on hammering.

I wrote about 1,100 words today. That's 1,100 more than I've been writing per day recently.
