And It Begins

So, in order to write 50k, I have to write 1666.67 words/day. Today, I’m at 1781…my secret to success today: getting up at 3:30 (in case I needed extra time today to meet my goal) and having chocolate for breakfast (note to any of my under-18 readers: Don’t do that. Chocolate for breakfast is just craziness…yummy, gooey, milk—uh, wait, I’m trying to tell you NOT to do that, right?)…

Anyway, my friends, tag in and let me know how you’re doing.


  1. I managed to make it to 2100 words, although this is now officially the second day. It's going surprisingly well, and I'm already feeling the flow a bit more than normal, since I'm pushing to just get words down rather than hyper-analyzing anything that might come out of my head. I think the biggest challenge is just going to be trying to silence the inner saboteur that will try and tell me that my writing is sub-par and that the final product won't be good... because really any first draft takes work to bring to a high level, but still contains some gems :-)

  2. sidenote: waking up at 3:30 am is totally freakin' hardcore.
