1K a Day Challenge – Week Thirty Five

It’s September 6th, 2015. Week thirty five of writing 1,000 words per day of fiction. It’s time for another update!

Days 242 through 248 have been successes, with a minimum of 1,000 words per day written.

Stats for Days 242 to 248:

Day 242 – 1183 words
Day 243 – 1251 words
Day 244 – 1268 words
Day 245 – 1039 words
Day 246 – 1154 words
Day 247 – 1461 words
Day 248 – 1007 words

Total count for the year thus far is 316,398 words. Average daily word count is 1,275 words. WIP Triple T is at 23,984 words, and based on current projections is 80% complete.

So now that Avalon Circle’s first draft is in my rearview and I’m back on the time travel twins novella that I was working on last year, dubbed Triple T, I realized a couple of things.

  1. I am not a fan of writing time travel.
  2. I fucking love this story.
  3. I will probably never write time travel again after this, at least in a logically consistent way that, in-world, makes sense and avoids all the regular time travel paradoxes we’ve come to know and love.

I don’t expect to be working on Triple T for longer than another week or so, at which point I’ll be back on the Shades of the Past wagon, writing the third entry in that series. Most of you haven’t even read the second book in that series and I apologize about that. It’s a little out of my control and I’m not as concerned with getting it available to read as I am just writing a gajillion and one words this year.

Never fear, though, that third book is coming. It is the conclusion to the trilogy of the Shades of the Past, and the series is set to continue a generation down the line, following the descendants of these characters as the world truly comes into its own.

That’s all for now!
