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
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.
That's awesome, man. Hey... love a bunch of your covers; they look really good.

I spent 4 hrs watching Jordan Speith make golf history in England today. It was one of the best Sundays in tournament golf I've seen in some time. A comeback as good as what NE did at the Superbowl. What fun watching.

Now to prep for Game of Thrones! We're gonna rewatch Ep 1 on the DVR b4 episode 2.

Today was a little light for what I'm trying to get thru. Two days this week I didnt come close to my goal, but I'm satisfied overall:

So far keeping on schedule with what I want for the year ahead.

Wow ! Anything above 2000 is great. You know, i could finish my 50000 words novel, I think I know you...Karunya, Do I?, which is currently participating in the kindle scout contest, only in 5 months. That too when i had kept a target of writing at least a 1000 words.  This is great forum to keep yourself motivated.

Really floundering this week.
0 yesterday
Just 1289 today...
But if I wasn't on this thread, I think it would have only been maybe 300 today. Having this thread to answer to does provide motivation.

Yesterday was mostly a wash because I had a meeting with my financial planner. Between yesterday and today, though, I wrote 9,000 words, edited 29,000, and created ten covers.

First novel in the series should be done in 2ish weeks.  Hoping to have the second done before my wife gives birth to #5 in 2 months!

I did 11,000+ words last Wednesday.

Don't get too excited though-I still have to EDIT HARD.

Just started my very first novel today. I've set a goal to finish the rough draft by the end of August. Not sure I can do it but I'll give it a shot!

1347 2072 words today (decided to write a bit more).

I wrote 6,000 and edited 15,000 to finish both products. I'm taking the weekend off (other than a few busywork tasks) and living in the pool. I'm back Monday. I'm writing three novels in August.

Zip on Thursday- I tried to mix it up by doing chores first and was too wiped to do anything.
1320 today, and I'm now a week behind my publication goal.
Grrr.

I managed 1015 today, barely. Would have been more but I tossed out my first 500 words. They were so so bad I rewrote that part. I'm so new to this and trying to discover what works best for me.

1114 today. Luckily I had a little time to use my phone voice recorder today, or I might not have got my words in. Transcribed my recording in Dragon after an 18 minute session. Luckily it didn't go too bad.
