2,000 Words a Day!

My goal all week has been to write at least 2,000 words a day. I’m unofficially joining my fellow Scribes in the Double Dog Dare to complete our novels by August 12.

I’m pleased to say, that so far, I have exceeded the goal. Despite all kinds of distractions – like winning first place in Passionate Ink’s Stroke of Midnight Contest last night, I’ve still managed to stick to my goal.

In the spirit of completing my next book, all I have to say is:

Word count to date – 28,850

Not bad for starting last week. I’m not sure what the ultimate book length will be quite yet. I’d like to reach 100,000 words, but I’m not sure if the story will play out that long.

I think a little friendly “competition” is a fun way to reach a goal. If you have trouble staying motivated or completing a task, enlist some friends to keep you honest!

I’ll be posting about reading over at the Scribes’ Blog. Please stop by and visit. We love your comments!

    1. I think I was bit by the productivity bug this week. But, seriously, I have worked at home for the last 17 years, so I am just used to sitting down and getting stuff done. I also think it helps that I have the story plotted out ahead of time. I don’t have to stop and figure out where to go. For this book, I have also told myself to – get it down, keep moving, no second guessing – it can be edited later.
