Things got off to a good start for Autumn with yesterday's write-in. One day, I'll work out how I managed to write 4,200 words during that write-in and then I will write all of the books.
I had a bit of a lazy day today where the only thing I finished was the front (or back) of a top I'm knitting. There's still some time to do a bit of writing tonight, though, so I'll add a couple of hundred words to my total then head off to sleep, I think.
Wow, 4,200 is phenomenal! SPEED TYPER. Hope you managed to get some of those words done tonight.
Indeed I did - I pushed my total to a bit over 4,500 words, so it wasn't a lot, but it was some. Afterwards, I went back and re-read some of the bits and pieces of the story, at which point my head started filling up with more words that I wanted to write, but it was midnight and I was falling asleep at my keyboard, so I had to save them for today.
I'm having far too much fun with this LorF episode - it was occupying my every thought on my walk to work and I've already stolen some work time to type up some notes. Hopefully, this will set the scene for some productive writing tonight!
More writing happened! Not a lot, because I'm a bit tired after accidentally staying up past midnight last night and recovering from a stupid bunch of headaches. But still, I figure that several hundred words a night is better than none at all.
CURRENT AUTUMN TOTAL: 5,004
I added another 865 words to my LorF story today. It really is a lot of fun, especially since I'm starting to have a chance to write some of the more in-depth, actiony-type scenes.
CURRENT AUTUMN TOTAL: 5,869
Wow, Katie! You are blazing past a lot of us with your awesome word totals! Excellent work! Keep it up. That's awesome that you're having so much fun with it.
Well, that write-in certainly provided me with somewhat of a head-start!
Another 700 or so words today, which isn't bad. I'd like to write over 1,000 tomorrow night, so let's make that a goal of sorts.
CURRENT AUTUMN TOTAL: 6,592
But you're keeping a nice steady rhythm since. :D
The rhythm has faltered a little over the past week, mostly because I allowed myself to be distacted by a large project that's sort of related to what I'm writing (plus, I spent two nights last week doing music-type things, which was fun, even if it does eat into writing time). I still managed to add a couple of hundred words, so my total is sitting at just under 7,500 words. No sign of the end yet, so I'll just keep writing.
CURRENT AUTUMN TOTAL: 7,493
But what is this mysterious project, I wonder?
It's not a writing project, alas. It does involve words, but it's more to do with laying them out prettily... once I've collected them all, that is.
I did a tiny bit of writing tonight - just over a hundred words.
CURRENT AUTUMN TOTAL: 7,632
Now you have just made me curious about this mysterious wordly project!
Hehe, sorry about that! I swear I'll reveal it once it's all done.
Finally sat down for some writing and added another thousands words to my target. I still have no idea when either of these stories will actually end, so I think I'll just set myself a word target instead of my 'complete a first draft' idea. Let's see if I can get to 30,000 words by the end of Autumn!
CURRENT AUTUMN TOTAL: 8,678
Course you can. nice count.
After a few slack days (plus one or two where I had an unwelcome and annoying head cold), I wrote another 1,000 words today. Lately, I've taken to rewarding myself with woolly purchases after meeting my targets, which works brilliantly as an incentive but may end up proving too costly after a while!
CURRENT AUTUMN TOTAL: 9,703
ETA> If I weren't half asleep, I'd be tempted to knock out another 300 words and break the 10,000 word barrier. At this rate, though, most of the words would look something like this: ajk askj uii7yfhja. And half of that would be due to my cats walking across the keyboard, which they think is a perfectly proper thing for them to do.
Oh I hear you on the gafhb sdvj sjaofw. My cats also enjoy contributing to my works.
Great work nearly hitting 10K though
It's been a little while, but I'm back at the keyboard. At this point, I have a suspicion that I don't actually want to finish my LorF story and it will just keep going forever. I am fine with this. People who actually want some sort of conclusion are probably less so.
At any rate, I added a couple of hundred words to my total tonight. Huzzah!
CURRENT AUTUMN TOTAL: 10,270
Yes, another couple of hundred words tonight. And yes, I really don't want the thing to end, so I will be writing it forever.
CURRENT AUTUMN TOTAL: 10,859
More LorF is fine. Nice total working there
