Welcome to week forty-six.
If you’re reading this at any time after first thing on Monday (which is impossible because this won’t post till one!) the counter below will probably say something different (which is a good thing!).
Only one more week to go!
This weeks progress has been a little up and down. There were points at which I was over the 4K per day target again, mainly due to doing 5.5K words on Wednesday, but the total has dropped back a little again, mainly due to me struggling to progress the story on Saturday and Sunday.
I know for a fact that there will be scenes that will end up in the trash folder because there are points at which I’ve simply been writing something in order to see where I could push the story. Luckily, I think I’ve now found a route, which wasn’t something I’d even thought of before. The thing is, I know how the story ends – I’ve pretty much known that from the beginning – but it’s getting to that point that’s the problem.
As it stands I have Book One pretty well drafted at 45.5K. Book Two is more a series of scenes that need to be strung together and comes in at about 30K. Book Three is just over 10K and is a jumble of ideas thrown together. But, I have a place to start when I go back to revise – and that’s the whole point.
Let’s see if I can get to that 120K by the end of the week.
Nothing. Zero, Zilch.
Aim: To monitor time spent reading over the week.
R = Normal reading, A = Audio book, T = Reading on the treadmill.
- Monday: R 185m, A 115m
- Tuesday: R 210m, A 90m
- Wednesday: R 118m, A 131m
- Thursday: R 130m, A 189m
- Friday: R 265m, A 22m
- Saturday: R 260m, A 24m
- Sunday: R 195m, A 42m
Total hours: 32h 56m
Join me next Monday for another round-up of progress and if you’re also challenging yourself to a wordcount each week, let me know in the comments..
