Ah, that sucks. Sorry to hear that. It happens. I've had a few word count struggles the past couple of days too. It's okay, remember not to be too hard on yourself and just try to get back on that horse when inspiration strikes. You're doing great!  8)

I know I will catch up eventually .. I think my brain just needs a break, I have been going non stop for a while now. If you think about it, we are way ahead of the game (if such things counted) either way for making the count as often as we do.

Not to worry, you'll catch up next week  :-*

As will I, hopefully; the allergic reaction is still bad, though fading, and I only got 1k today. Basically, it's like I was hit with a very severe 2 day flu.
Still, that 1k makes up 10k for the week, and my normal lately has been 5k per week, so I'm still happy  8)

And next week, we try again! ;)

Sorry to hear about that. And yet you were still able to churn out some words. That's impressive, and the kick in the butt I need. Have a good, restful weekend. :)

Only 2679 words today, but I got 15,004 for the week - so that's an AVERAGE of 3k a day. That counts, right?? Besides, it's a lot better than getting 12k in 6 days a week like I was doing before I joined this thread. WIN!!

That's awesome! Averages are more important than any given day, for sure. Some days everything clicks and some days, not so much...

I'm feeling a little tired from the pace. I wrote 1500 words this morning and I know I can do the other 1500. I know I can! My brain is like, ugh, however. But when I consider I used to think 1k a day was a good pace, the fact that I'm averaging about 2700 words a day is pretty good.

Hey, all! I've been posting my word count in the 1000 words a day thread. However, I actually have a personal goal to write at least 3000 words per day and today I reached 3104. I imagine if/WHEN I fall short of my word count goal, I'll be silent around these parts  :D

Isn't that the truth? Sometimes it's easy, others it's like pulling teeth... out of a rhino.

I've been killing it lately! I'm not sure on the word count, because I bounce between stories, but on the one  I've been working on today that I know where I started, I'm up over 4k words just today!
I always do this, I'll write like mad when my inspiration hits me and then it slowly fizzles out and I struggle to write anything for a few weeks. I've learned to embrace my muse when it hits and work it until I can't even see straight anymore :o

Gratz on the numbers guys~!!! Keep it going!

Just take it easy and get some rest  :(  rather have you well and a day or two behind then weeks behind because you pushed it!! (Actually I would just rather have you well lol)

Thanks! :) I'm better now, and my 3k is 400 words away from being done for the day!


Sorry to hear about that. And yet you were still able to churn out some words. That's impressive, and the kick in the butt I need. Have a good, restful weekend. :)

Ah, I lived to tell about it at least :D Thanks :) It wasn't the dangerous kind, just the uncomfortable and painful kind  ???

Well done you! The pace does that at first, but it honestly gets easier. Just rest when you need to--2700 is pretty DARN good!

Go you! (just quietly, though, I've fallen short quite a few times in the last week or two, and that hasn't shut me up, so no need to be quiet on my account if you don't make the 3k :P)

Aw yeah! 8) And still 4 words in front after the replaced 12 words! ;D

My goals are generally chapter goals.  My chapters are about 2000 to 2500 words, and my goal is to write a minimum of 2, or edit a minimum of 3, per day.

So, today's goal is to edit 3 chapters.

All you peeps who are editing, what is your editing goal?

Is there a bigger words per day club? I haven't seen a thread... I'm embarrassed to admit what I wrote because I don't want to discourage people making their milestones.  ???

This weekend went way better than last weekend. 4541 Saturday and 4137 Sunday. My goal was 5k per day but I will take it! I even got my chores done around the house.
Second week in a row I have hit my weekly goal of 21k! 
Now lets see if I can get this book done by Friday . . .
Good luck everyone!  Find your Zen and tap away at the keyboard!

I'm in!

I need some someone or something to help me to stick to my goal. So, here it is... 5K a day is the goal. 3K is the minimum.

So far today I'm at 1051 and that's just me screwing around at work during spare moments.

Words on "paper" is the goal. Albeit, rough but I try to tell myself that I'm just filling a sandbox so I can build castles.

I'll be doing editing at night, as well. I find that to be very rewarding when I'm feeling stuck. Well, editing and alcohol help. Write drunk, edit sober (not really but it sound romantic)

Thanks for starting this thread

3,047 written this morning. Hoping to get in some more on another story later today, but given that it's my anniversary, it might not happen.

3163 for the day! Will probably spend the rest of the night thinking about my plot/editing a little bit.

I second the motion for immediate dazzling! :D Personally, 3K/day is about as much as I can write before my head starts to spin off and fly around the room, so I won't be discouraged at all (just very, very impressed).

 :( mumblecough8125hack

I really don't want to discourage people because I've been there.

5400+ today with 3 book covers. Thought I'd take a break and leave it until tomorrow and just drink Vodka until I pass out. I guess I won't pass out, but my goal is higher than where I'm at. Wasn't Rosalind at 10K per day? I want to write that.
