50k in 50 Days! - Day Seven

It's day seven of the 50,000/50 Writing Challenge and I'm ending the day at just over 5,000 words. That makes me a full 2 days behind. I'm quickly realizing that on a weekday it's just not possible for me to write a full 1,000 words. I work fulltime and am stuggling to keep up here. This isn't as easy as I thought it would be.
Word Count: 5,032/50,000

Seeing as I'm about to start my catching up, yes, I'm way behind you girl! I've got 7,000 words to make up!

I'm at 4,700. But I'm not worrying about it right now :) I didn't write anything yesterday, life was hectic. But I'm noticing that since I'm living this challenge I'm excited about my writing again. Thanks for that! I'm glad I joined you. And you're doing great, I'm sure we'll both catch up soon!

Consider this training. ;) It took me a long time to be able to write a 1000 words a day. I sort of had to work up to it, if that makes sense.

Just went to my individual posts to total the words for all six days (haven't done today's yet) and I have 6,661.

The best thing about this whole thing is the opportunity to complete achievable and "measurable" goals.

Thanks, Sarah!

I'm in edit mode right now, so there is no word count. More like how many scenes I accomplished in a week.

I'm right there with you. My goal is usally 1,000 words per day, but with a very active 1yo, that's sometimes difficult to accomplish. Especially when I had to go back and fix some things before I moved forward. So, I switched my goal to 5,000 words per week. I'm a little over halfway there. Hopefully, I'll get in 600 words today during naptime, and another 600 after he goes to bed. If I do that today and tomorrow, my goal will be accomplished. =)

I'm working my way up to 1000 a day. Don't know my word count because I haven't type anything up yet. I've been hand writing. Write about 3 or 4 pages each time, but haven't been consistent with writing every day this week. I'm going to get there though. Thanks for being an inspiration.
