It’s that time of the week again: time for another 365K Club word count check-in! Numbers, please…
March 26, Day 86: 298 words
March 27, Day 87: 481 words
March 28, Day 88: 940 words
March 29, Day 89: 0 words
March 30, Day 90: 1975 words
March 31, Day 91: 868 words
April 1, Day 92: 414 words
That’s a grand total of 4,976 words for the week, and 19,869 for the month!
Did I beat last week’s total?
Last week I wrote 3,906 words. This week I wrote 1,070 more words. Because, god dammit, I am a writing machine. Also, I was gearing up for the A to Z Challenge, and I needed to get ahead of the game! (Okay, I wrote my A and B posts, and then prodded my husband and all my friends to join the challenge, too. Same thing, right?)
My monthly goal was to hit 18,000 words this month, and I actually surpassed that goal on March 30 with a monthly total of 19,001 words.
In addition to hitting my monthly goal, I also surpassed the halfway point to my 100,000-word yearly goal with a total of 51,212 words hit on the same day!
That’s right… I’m only three months into the year, going on four, and I’ve already made it halfway to my total. Which means I could actually DOUBLE my goal this year. How cool is that?!
I’m sure I actually got an official 365K Club badge for this, but since I can’t find it anywhere on my computer I made one of my own:
Ta-da! (And yes, that is a “Livin’ on a Prayer” gag.)
Goals for next week and next month?
The A to Z Challenge will be in full swing, so for next week I need to stay ahead of the game by writing at least one blog post per day, as well as chipping away at my Moving to Canada book. I’ll be hosting Blog-Ins every Friday this month, so that should give me a chance to catch up on my writing if I’m behind, and I want to keep on upping my monthly totals too, so my goal for next month is to hit 20,000 words! That’s about 667 words a day, and since April also coincides with Camp NaNoWriMo, I should have plenty of incentive to keep hammering away at my words.
