1K a Day Challenge – Week Thirty One

It’s August 9th, 2015. Week thirty one of writing 1,000 words per day of fiction. It’s time for another update!

Days 214 through 220 have been successes, with a minimum of 1,000 words per day written.

Stats for Days 214 to 220:

Day 214 – 1231 words
Day 215 – 1207 words
Day 216 – 1048 words
Day 217 – 1042 words
Day 218 – 1012 words
Day 219 – 1034 words
Day 220 – 1056 words

Total count for the year thus far is 280,121 words. Average daily word count is 1,273 words. WIP Avalon Circle is at 79,187 words. Based on current projections, Avalon Circle is 68% complete.

My vacation is just about at an end, but I thought I’d throw a quick update your way so you know what I’m working on:

  1. Avalon Circle is continuing. Right now I think the original estimate of 116,000 is going to be pretty close, and then I gotta cut out like 30k words to make it a length that might sell.
  2. I’m still planning to write more for one of the writing games that is epistolary in nature, but we’ve been giving it some time for anyone that wishes to contribute and I might get another letter in there in the next couple weeks.
  3. There’s another writing game that I did write for this week, twice in fact, and that’s the one for The Shape of Family. Part Three is entitled “Wild” and will go up on Tuesday. For the foreseeable future, Tuesday is the story update day, which means that I will be posting three blog posts a week. Update on Sunday, Story on Tuesday, Motivational on Wednesday.
  4. Yesterday and today I’m working on a quirky little writing prompt for a Chuck Wendig flash fiction challenge, and that one will likely post up on the blog in the coming weeks. I probably won’t do any other stories until Shape of Family is complete, so it might be quite a few weeks.

That’s about it for now! Despite being on vacation I never took a break from writing and we’ll see how that goes for me going forward.

And remember, writing is a skill. So write the hell on, writers.
