Of course, I have "word wars" and "writing sprints" with Jaclyn Aurore to thank for today's success.
Distractions included, but weren't limited to:
- the refrigerator repair guy stopped in for a visit
- not one, but two boys missed their buses today, and
- a short visit from a good friend.
And then, there was this in the mail:
Hercules is a budgie... How he managed to send mail without using a carrier a pigeon is beyond me.
So - today's word count came to 1, 894, for a grand total of 6, 957 to date.
lol Hercules sent you a threat really...ReplyDelete
thanks for doing word sprints with me today - you challenged me and as a result i got my count up more than 2k higher than it was yesterday
remember, your word count might feel small in the grand scheme of things, but you're in target - the minimum is 1667 words per day, and you beat that!
A threat - that's exactly what I was thinking!Delete
In previous years, I pushed myself to do at least 2000 words a day, but by week four I would slow to a crawl, and be forcing myself to write. 1667 *feels* like a more gentle pace. :)
