Wednesday: 2000 words

Thursday: 3600 words

...and DONE (Clocking in at 62,700, ~3000 words fewer than I estimated--but the total will fluctuate when I start editing).

I always sprint at the beginning of a book, then slow down and pace myself (sometimes too much) in the middle, and then super-sprint to the end.

I...I can't type anymore. My hands need a break. Be back soon.

  1. Woohoo! Way to go! I get the same way with sprinting to the end. Once I know I'm close to the finish it seems like I have to drop everything and type until my fingers feel like they're falling off.

    Good job on getting it done. That's one heck of an accomplishment. =oD


If you don't feel that you are possibly on the edge of humiliating yourself, of losing control of the whole thing, then possibly what you are doing isn't very vital. If you don't feel like you are writing somewhat over your head, why do it? If you don't have some doubt of your authority to tell this story, then you are not trying to tell enough. --John Irving
