I let a month slip by me there. So, in June, I wrote 35, 174 words. In July, I was up to 40,232. I’m not sure why I’m having so much trouble hitting the 40k mark on a regular basis. 40k is about 1300 words a day, and for the most part, that’s not a particularly unreasonable goal for me. I think the answer is consistency. Six days in June where I dropped below 1000 words (all of them a significant shortcoming) and only three in July. Not sure if that’s enough for a trend.
For the year, I’m sitting at 247,825 words.
I’m working on exactly how to define revision related goals. Right now, I’m looking at two crime manuscripts that need revision, the Science Fiction experiment that I’ve been posting here, and a couple other projects that are still on my hard drive.
The one on the right is the Science Fiction Experiment, all printed out. Completely intimidated by that one. For comparison, the other two are both full-length crime novels. Yes, I’m showing off. It beats quaking in the corner out of fear and insecurity. 😉
