« on: January 02, 2017, 04:20:21 AM »
Hi all - I hope it's OK to start this new thread!

Yesterday, I did 1,695 words.

Getting in a couple hundred words this morning. Will come back later this evening when I've passed the 1k mark.

Didn't write yesterday (travel day), but I did write 1,217 words today. A good start to the year, only 248,000 and change to go.

Just about scraped 1,300 yesterday, so averaging 1,000 a day so far! I'm back in the office today, and this is where it becomes a real challenge, I suppose. Writing 1,000 words every day before/after/during eight hours in the office.

1850 words for Jan 3rd.  I wasn't expecting so much given I was on the road driving for a bit over 6 hours, and throw in a couple more for loading and unloading the car.  Managed to bash them out in a hurry early in the morning before all that happened.
