1K a Day Challenge – Week Forty Eight

It’s December 6th, 2015. Week forty eight of writing 1,000 words per day of fiction. It’s time for another update!

Days 333 through 339 have been successes, with a minimum of 1,000 words per day written.

Stats for Days 333 to 339:

Day 333 – 1509 words
Day 334 – 1819 words
Day 335 – 1736 words
Day 336 – 1690 words
Day 337 – 1684 words
Day 338 – 1629 words
Day 339 – 1593 words

Total count for the year thus far is 431,670 words. Average daily word count is 1,273 words. WIP Savage Duty is at 80,525 words. Based on 120,000 words estimated for expected completion, it is 67% complete.

It’s December. How do you like that? I’m in the last month of the year and haven’t missed a day. Four more weeks to go. The end of my year, the end of the trilogy, the beginning of so much more.

Next year as I’ve stated a couple times will not be a “write every day” kind of year. It will probably be a weekly goal (with the first week being completely an off week) in which so many chapters have to be edited or written, or some such progress has to be made on a weekly basis. That way I can continue to push my writing during certain parts of the year while still managing to get editing done, submissions, and other things that are author-related.

Writing every single day and doing those other things has turned out to be just completely unmanageable for me with the day job. I’ve made some money with my writing this year (less than 5% of my annual gross), and I’d like to hopefully start pushing that forward with other professional projects and more self-published works as the year goes on.

Until next week, keep that drive to thrive alive!

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