50k in 50 Days! - Day Seventeen

Word Count: 8,363/50,000
It's day seventeen of the 50,000/50 Writing Challenge and I can't believe how fast this is all going.  I can't keep up but I did reach my 1,000 words goal today.  YAY.  This coming week is spring break (I'm a teacher) so I'm going to see if I can keep on track for the rest of the week.  How is everyone else doing?  What are your totals?

That's fantastic! So you are out of school for the summer, right? If so, that might be a good time to have this challenge again. (Hint, Hint - lol)

So far, I am on target. Getting ready to do my 1,000 words in a few minutes.

As of last night, I was just over 12,000. I've been trying to do 1200 a day, but last night I had to go back and rewrite what I had done the day before because of a stupid mistake. I'm getting htere though. =)

I am not going down this journey with you, but I am glad you’re having success... whatever make you write can't be bad.

My WIP is nearly complete with 70k words; the projected word count is 82k. I can only write without people bothering me. So I normally write while my family sleeps and since I work days I tend to only write during the weekend. So the 1000 words a day schedule wouldn’t work for my writing schedule.

Thx and keep it up.

I generally make it a goal to write 1-2,000 words per day, except during revisions. I really make a point to sit and write daily, it keeps me closer to the story and my characters. If I stay away, they grow cold and distant, and it takes me longer to get back into it.

So, I think your 50-50 challenge is a good way to get used to finding a daily writing schedule...a good thing.

Good luck on your journey!

I had a good day today...yesterday, I waited until the day was almost over!

But I do so much better when I get to it early.

Oh cool! Sorry I missed the start of your wordcount challenge. I've tried them a few times and have rarely succeeded. But Wannabe Writers seems cool!
