Only 8,500. I wanted to get another chapter in but I have to switch gears and load up a new release. I also want to get another 40 laps in the pool done before bed. I did get three hours in the pool earlier, though, so not a bad day overall.

Took last night off, but wrote 2049 today. About 10% finished with my novel by my word count goal. Not anywhere near where I want to be to get the rough draft done by the end of August, but hey it's my first novel.

Congrats to those posting above me. Those are amazing word counts. I hope practice will get mine up too, though probably no where near those numbers.

Hit a heck of a bump in the road the past week and had to do a ton of revisions. I HATE that, but my characters weren't strong enough in the workup. Ack.
Monday: 2045
Yesterday: roadblock: zip a dee do dah
Today- went back in and added more depth to my MC  before writing, and so today:
2146
Probably the same tomorrow, b/c I have to re-read the MS to ensure that I'm consistent with the traits I put in; but I should tie this sucker up by Friday. (Sheesh; I thought this was going to be in the bag 2 weeks ago.. grrr)
Those darn threads on scams and KU 3.0 have been a real distraction; I'll admit it.

Finished last month on 150,000 words.
Finished today on 12,006.

I'm about 3/4 of the way through my new mystery novel and it's shaping up to be 100k in total. When did I become that person?

944 today but that doesn't seem fair because the last word was the last word of the book.

On the bright side, book finished!

 I haven't been able to write anything since May, well nothing significant due to work pressure.
 At  the weekends I've only managed about 1000 words at best.
Now I'm two weeks into the  holiday, I've relaxed enough and I managed 10,342 words  yesterday. Hooray and what was meant to be a short story in my new series, became a novel instead.
Damn. I'd been hoping to finish it and move on to the next one, but new ideas popped into my head because I'm obviously  no longer stressed. 
Means I can write again. Yippee. :D ;D
Historical fantasy mainly but knowing me it'll be all the ones I read as a child. Enid Blyton Scifi?

I was looking at my writing spreadsheet from 2014 and I was managing about 250/day. For 2017 I'm at 2,250/day and I'm on a 3k+/day streak for a little over a week now. If nothing goes wrong in the latter half of the year, it'll be my best writing year to date. I'm not sure what changed for 2017. Somewhere along the line, everything just got easier.

I added another 2,800-word chapter because it was bothering me to be behind.
