3,116 and now in the last third of the book! The pace should really pick up, not that it's slowed much, being a thriller.

2523 today. Two scenes are in what I call pseudocode. Quick, tell-don't-show text that I will fill out later. Fair? Yeah.

That works for me. I get the scene written down without worrying about details. For example:

At Samuels office
Describe: Very small, but organized
They have coffee from the Joe DiMaggio Mr. Coffee machine
Samuel: Ive found him. A Mr. Bolton Vance has a graphic design company here in San Francisco.
Great, lets give him a call.
Hold on. I think youll want to look into him some more.
V: Not really necessary. All I want to do is I just want to meet him.
S: This isnt a romance thing.
V: Shrugs.

I'm going to try this again. Been spending too much time fiddling with ads and other crap since moving my books wide, and need to refocus on writing.

I have my software set up so I keep track of pages rather than words, because it tricks me into thinking things are easier. I can check word count very easily, but I don't like to actually think in those terms, so I try not to look at the exact number. For the sake of this thread 1 page = 250 words.

So far I have 4 pages since Sunday (approx. 1k words) and need to get to 28 before this coming Sunday to hit the 1k-per-day goal for the week, but I'm going to aim for 30 instead, because I like round numbers.

I tend to think in weekly terms since I don't write every day. If I miss my goal one week, I wipe the slate clean and start over the next week. I'd like to hit 40 pages every week (10k) but 30 will do as a baseline for the moment.

Approximately 2k (8 pages). Puts me at 3k(ish) for the week. Need 4500 more to hit my goal before Sunday, so it's maybe within reach.

I write so much better in wee hours of the morning that I ought to arrange my whole day with naps so I can split it in two. I can market and do other non-writing stuff during the daylight hours, then nap a little and do my writing after midnight. My word counts would sore if I could get into that sort of rhythm on a consistent basis.

I broke the 30,000 words per day barrier last week.

Dictations FTW

Now, if I can only edit myself as I speak in real time.

Another all-nighter. Got 1.5k, which leaves me slightly short of my weekly page goal. But I like the stuff I produced, so i'm not too upset. If I can keep this kind of rhythm going next week I'll end up with a very decent number.
