Got a new goal. 1K words a day for the next 15 days. That should see me through to almost the end of this first act. Then I can start work on real, new, and exciting ideas with the second.

300 words this morning. Gotta move some furniture for the family, but I will be back this evening with tales of conquest.

Posting this for accountability's sake. Need to write more outside of short stories and academic papers.

About 700 words yesterday (+300 I wrote the day before that to become 1000 words) on my new short story: focusing on a group of giant slayers waging epic sky borne battles against the demonic hordes of giants!  :D

Another round of about 600 words today. When the first action scene of your short story alone takes 1,600 words, you know this is going to be a long one.  8)

Today is my fourth straight day without writing anything. I'm too anxious over the impending release of Empire of Chains. I know you're supposed to keep writing, but it's my first ever release, so that isn't so easy.

I did do some editing on the sequel to Empire of Chains, so today wasn't a total loss.

No writing once again today, but I did finish an editing pass of the second book of World in Chains. My first draft was a lot cleaner than I initially thought.

I had free time to write today, but spent most of it catching up on sleep instead :(

That said the proofs came in for an article I wrote ages ago so I'm excited to review it and send it off!

Okay-- Didn't really write so much as revise.
Revised my Prologue. Yay!
Made one pass of Chapter 2 (it's gonna need 3 or 4 passes)
Consolidated some bullet points about the new Chapter 1.

I hit 3800 words yesterday. I'd forgotten how much a little planning ahead of time can increase my word counts.

The last three days have been solid (at least 1300 words each day). Today, I got over 1600.

dudes!  dudes!  (and all the dudettes, of course!)

i laid down 842 words this morning!!

i'm now halfway through the last chapter.  probably 1500 words to go, then it's a quick structural/story/consistency edit.  after that, it'll be time to put it in front of people for thoughts on the story!

I wrote about 2,000 words today. I also veered away from my outline. We'll see how that goes.
