Working on a non-fic, 1100 words done. None on the fiction title, but I did scribble 10 pages of handwritten notes.


Yes, I'm writing a scifi/high fantasy/comedy crossover. What do you mean, write to the market?

After a miserable first week of April I decided to switch to a fairly strict 2kish words per day, 5 days a week routine, writing at about the same time every night, taking weekends off. Since then I've basically hit my goal every day except for one.  Very happy with the way things are going. This sort of schedule gets me to right around 10k words per week, which is the level of productivity I've been targeting (and mostly failing to achieve) for the last 6+ months.

I'm finally able to join this thread after months of procrastination and slow writing. 1000 today, and 1000 last week Mon, Tues, and Weds. I was inspired by reading how KDP pre-orders work. You have to upload a full manuscript, but then you have up to 90 days to finalize it. All you need is the draft. My writing process has been to go over each paragraph, sentence, word several times, and it took an hour or more to write 300 words. That's probably why it took me +3 years to write my last book. But now I'm on a roll!

3,418 today, which exceeds my daily goal of 3,000.
But yesterday I spent an entire day re-reading what I've already done.  :(

1372 this morning. Doesn't quite make up for the awful word count for the week, but at least it's something for a bonus writing day. Hopefully I'll have good numbers this week, then I plan to take a few days off later next week after I finish this WIP for a little R&R. Probably what I need to get back to my normal 3k days during the week.

Right now, I'd be happy to hit 100 words a day.
