1K a Day Challenge – Week Thirty Four

It’s August 30th, 2015. Week thirty four of writing 1,000 words per day of fiction. It’s time for another update!

Days 235 through 241 have been successes, with a minimum of 1,000 words per day written.

Stats for Days 235 to 241:

Day 235 – 1306 words
Day 236 – 1053 words
Day 237 – 1185 words
Day 238 – 1085 words
Day 239 – 1001 words
Day 240 – 1201 words
Day 241 – 5315 words

Total count for the year thus far is 308,035 words. Average daily word count is 1,278 words, up for the first time in a couple months! Probably has something to do with a 5k words day. WIP Avalon Circle is at 99,272 words, and has reached the finish line!

That’s right, I had a moment this morning when I realized there was one entire scene I didn’t need, and several thousand words of unnecessary denouement, and I decided I’d try to write to the end of the story. And just shy of 100K words, I made it!

Man, where do I even go from here? I’ve written two novels and a myriad of short stories. At least one novella-length worth and I’m working on another at the moment (Shape of Family).

I believe it is time to go back to the time travel twins novella I was working on last year, and bring that to completion. Twins that can travel in time. Weird story, but has been a lot of fun.

After the time travel story? Back to the Shades of the Past series for the third book!

I’m cutting the update short this week cause I was writing all day and I deserve at least some kind of break. See you next week!

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