How's everyone else doing??

3115 for today. I'd like to get more, but I need to work on my other two WIPs.

Keep up the good work, everyone!

Thank you! It's nice to get back into writing. :) I'm mostly feeling better with a lingering cough. I got two upcoming novels pretty well mapped out, so at least I should the new year running.

Today I wrote 3400 words and I'm at the early point in the story where I just want to keep writing. But I need to get one book ready for the editor and another ready for beta readers. These 15k+ weeks are sure making me productive despite being sick! lol

I'm so happy! This will really help clean things up.

Update: Now that I only have current books in my dashboard, there are only 45 there. That doesn't include my Kindle World books or multi-author box sets I'm in. (I deleted about ten books.) ???

The categories at the bottom finally disappeared for me. (I'm always the last to get Amazon's new rollouts.)

Wait a second. Amazon put cats in charge of this? That explains everything.

😂 😂 😂

I managed 1810 words yesterday. Then 3470 today and finished my WIP by my original goal date. If I'm feeling up to it, I'll go over beta feedback today for another WIP.

I got 2597 yesterday, then my sickness kicked me down again. I've gone back to pre-plotting my upcoming stories for today. Hopefully I can write tomorrow.

1026. Not much but it's start after being so sick.

Hopefully I'll be back in the game starting tomorrow. If so, I'll still be able to finish my WIP by the original deadline, which was the 15th. On the other hand, with so much time to think I made some pre-planning process on a couple standalones I'm going to write early next year. My lack of writing wasn't a complete waste! I also got some reading in.

Good luck, all!

I've slept over 24 hours in the last two days, no writing done. Starting to feel human again though.

3122 for today. I've been trying not to get my son's illness but it's not working. I'll just have to keep taking Vitamins and hope for the best.

Congrats on the word counts! I hit 3078 and am right on target for finishing on Friday. The story took a really unexpected twist (this is why I can't/won't plot beyond 5-10 scenes ahead) but it was exactly what the book needed to amp up the stakes for the big finale.

To write books for all the covers I have waiting! 😂 I fell behind on my writing schedule this year (I've been sick a LOT, and finally last month I went a full month without being sick) and need to catch up. I want to get back to publishing a book a month, and if I keep up my current pace, I'm set to do that!

Today (weekends are always bonus days) I wrote 1321 and brought my total for the month over 12k. I'm also set to finish this WIP on Friday! That's 5 days ahead of my original goal date!

Keep up the great work, everyone!

It's still there for me. That would be a disappointing change if they get rid of it. Who has time to hunt down all the categories their books are in?

I too thought the title of this post was 5k a day! Even though my goal is 15k a week, I'm curious about Wayne's editing process. The second draft drives me nuts. Breaking it up and being ready to send my drafts to betas immediately sounds wonderful!

Best of luck to all of you 5k a weekers! I think that was about my goal when I was working full time, and it was enough to get me to the point of becoming a full-time writer.

3278 for today. Not bad especially considering I was distracted by big, white flakes falling from the sky AND a Bookbub feature today. Let the page refreshing commence. 😂

Tomorrow's my day off, and for once I broke 3k each day this week!

Keep up the good work everyone!

7000 words for the day! NOT FUN AT ALL but necessary since I'll be babysitting my niece tomorrow (which means I had to fit in double my writing goal today, since she'll be eating up all of my free time tomorrow ;D)

7k days are no fun at all! Great work!

I've heard everything as far as AMS ads: no permafree or sales, ONLY sales, short-term only, long-term only, etc. Like everything else in this business, you have to test things to figure out what works for you.

3131 words for this morning. Had some distractions.

Joy, my goal is 15k+ words each week.

I should've known I'd be too stubborn to skip a writing session even when going to bed too late. It paid off. 4,302 words for this morning!

Great work, everyone! I got 3577 words for this morning. With it being Halloween, I may not get to sleep in time to wake up early enough to write tomorrow. Good thing I'm not doing Nano!

Thank you, Pandorra! Glad you're feeling better, WR.

3018 words today. I have some exciting scenes to write tomorrow, so hopefully I'll get extra words in. Nothing like a good fight to set my fingers flying across the keyboard! ;D

Congrats on the new release! I got 1278 words this morning (bonus day).

Thanks, Pandorra! Lost Wolf has never been free before (and won't be for long) and I'm thrilled to have made it into the top 50 free books with no paid promos!
