It’s that time of the week again: time for another 365K Club word count check-in! Numbers, please…

April 16, Day 107: 670 words

April 17, Day 108: 382 words

April 18, Day 109: 1,439 words

April 19, Day 110: 496 words

April 20, Day 111: 285 words

April 21, Day 112: 0 words – Prince died, and much like the day that David Bowie died, I spent most of my time listening to his music and crying (and also wondering where the fucking hell my copy of Under the Cherry Moon I’d ordered on Amazon earlier in the week was, since there was yet another snafu with UPS trying to deliver my stuff to Chula Vista)

April 22, Day 113: 320 words – I wrote a short tribute post for Prince, sneaking it into the A to Z Challenge under “T”

That’s a grand total of 3,592 words for the week, 12,056 for the month, and 64,136 for the year!

Did I beat last week’s total?

Last week I wrote 4,921 words, so unfortunately I did not smash my weekly record.


No badges for me this week. I was going to try for the 5K Marathon badge, which involves writing 5,000 words and then walking the equivalent of a 5K, but I hadn’t realized it was last weekend, so I wasn’t at all prepared. Maybe next year?

Goals for next week?

Onward with the last week of the A to Z Challenge! We’ll be holding our final Blog-In at Starbucks this Friday, so stop by and say hi. I’m working on putting together another writing challenge for the Nonfiction Authors Association, as we’ve recently formed a little accountability group, so hopefully I will have the details all figured out by then.

In the meantime…
