Thousand Words a Day Club 2018
« on: January 01, 2018, 11:24:58 AM »
Here's to a new year and a new thread. I started 2018 with a new book and a simple 9K. Good luck on the year everyone.

Well, what the heck, I'll give it a try. Public shame is good for the soul, right?  :-X

I'm in! Finally got my life in order, so this year is going to be full-on on the writing/self-publishing front :D. Question-does outlining/prep count for the 1000 words?

As someone who was raised Catholic, I'd say you have the right idea. Any kind of shame, really. ;D

This is my goal for this year. I beat 1k today, but I'm not sure exactly by how much as it was spread across four different books.

Just shy of 2k today.  Hoping for a better day tomorrow!
  I write urban fantasy.  There are girls in gowns and glowy hands on my covers.

Pretty sure I won't post daily updates (since I try to stay offline on days when I don't need to be on), but here we go. My target daily wordcount is 6k (I know, I may be unrealistically ambitious), but before that, my goal is to simply sit down and write something every day. (Looked at my wordcount tracking for last year and realized that the primary thing holding me back was all the days when my wordcount was zero.)

Jan 1: 1,900
Jan 2 (so far): 2,200
