New High Score: writing goals, week 29

I’m a day late this week, but yes – it’s that time of the week again: time for another 365K Club word count check-in! Numbers, please…

July 16, Day 198: 498 words

July 17, Day 199: 815 words

July 18, Day 200: 906 words

July 19, Day 201: 802 words

July 20, Day 202: 1,015 words

July 21, Day 203: 3,497 words

July 22, Day 204: 1,281 words

That’s a grand total of 8,814 words for the week, 29,189 for the month of July, and 135,870 for the year!

Did I beat last week’s total?

Last week I wrote 8,250 words, which means I beat that total by 564 words! I also crushed my previous Best Day Ever on July 21st by 482 words. Take that, July 9!


No official badges for me this week, but I would like to award myself the “Sticktoitiveness Badge,” for sitting down and working on a single project with intensity and focus this week. Probably because I had a deadline on Friday (which has now been pushed back to Tuesday). I also made myself a “New High Score!” badge, since the project I’m working on is about video games, and I just beat my previous personal best in terms of word count.

Goals for next week?

For next week, I need to finish up the book that was originally due to my publisher on Friday, and then await edits. I also need to get back to working on my Mayday stories, as I’ve let them sit for too long and I’m getting antsy about finishing that up.

What are you working on this week?
