From the Desktop: Writing Update 4/10/2017


Hello all! Hope you had a good week. Mine was…variable.

I haven’t mentioned it before now because I didn’t want to jinx it, but since 2/17 I have quietly been on a 46 day writing streak. Some days were as high as 2000 words while others were as low as 200. In the interest of complete transparency, I’m sad to report that the streak came to an end this week. That’s the bad news.

The good news is that I subsequently had my best writing day of the year (by 5 whole words) and ultimately managed 4866 words this week, which neatly reverses my recent downward trend. And the draft has now officially passed the 150,000 word mark!

This week I’m going to maintain my goal of 600 words a day/ 4200 total and see how that goes. If all goes well, I shall raise my goals again next week. We’re nearing the home stretch so we shall see.

As always, I hope you have a good week.

Happy reading and happy writing!
