ROW80 challenge: going strong
October 20, 2011
MyÂ ROW80 challengeÂ is to write 1,000 words a day.
Thursday 10/13: WroteÂ 1019Â words by 6:20 amâ€¦ then kept writing to finish up the scene by 6:54 with 1435 words. Exciting!
Friday 10/14:Â 107Â words. Yeah, Iâ€™m not missing a digit. Only got 1/10 of my goal in today. But Iâ€™m okay with that. Not so okay if it happens frequently.
Saturday 10/15:Â 1013Â words by 6:58 am. Last scene of the first act! Exciting.
Week total:Â 5320Â words. Nearly finished with the first act of my novel. Success.
Monday 10/17:Â 1037Â words, but not on my novelâ€“on a different story. Also wrote out an outline for that story. I only wrote something along the lines of 100 words on my novel. Iâ€™m stuck on a tough scene.
Tuesday 10/18:Â 1138, surprisingly. By 7:15 am. The scene is just as tough, mostly because my outline for it is so vague and ill-defined. So I skipped the uncertain part and am writing out the battle sequence. Once I got started, the writing went pretty quickly.
