Only 3,000 yesterday (spent hours with the financial planner and then watched Fate of the Furious) and 9,000 today. I essentially get to coast on three chapters a day until I finish this one next Friday. Then I have a week of editing for three manuscripts before starting on my 2018 writing slate in August.

You productivity is an inspiration.

I'm starting to steadily manage 1K words a day (takes me about 3.5 hours), hopefully I can keep it up. I need that new book to be finished already.

I'm shifting it up a bit this week and writing in the mornings and editing after my pool sessions in the afternoons. I wrote 6,000 words and edited 18,500 for the first day.

Mostly been managing my 1000 per day (not always). :)

I was 40,000+ words in on my WIP, then I woke up today remembering a dream that's just made 1000+ words so far of a new novel, just completed over 1000 on WIP so I'm happy with a total of a little over 2000 today.

Busy times ahead writing 2 novels at once.

I did actually have another book planned for after WIP number 1 but now that will have to wait until after WIP number 2. :)

I finished my Camp Nanowrimo book! What a rush. I learned that I can write a lot faster than I thought, and I don' think the quality suffered (of course, I haven't read it yet).

Here are my stats:



What helped:

Outline ahead of time
Don't read over anything you've written. Keep moving forward.
Don't critique yourself.
Each night, when going to sleep, ponder what you'll write in the upcoming scenes.
