Finish the Book—February Edition, Final Day

Let’s skip the pleasantries. I feel like today is a get this show on the road, put up or shut up kind of day.

7–9: 66
12–4: 1,585
8–9: 0

Time deficit: 118 minutes

Pace: 317 wph, yikes!

My goal is to put in ALL the time today.

I only need about 5,000 words to finish my book. If I can write about 1,000 words an hour, I can get that 5,000 today during my scheduled writing time. I have this terrible suspicion I’m going to go long on this book, but I’m going to aim for 1,000 words an hour and 5,000 words today.

Update #1: 66 net word gain, after deleting 839 words, and having a 27 minute interruption that I plan to make up today. That means I was writing at a 600 words an hour pace and I’ve made more progress in the story so I can’t complain. Well, I could, but I’m not going to! ;)

Update #2: 1,585 is cumulative, because I can’t be bothered with math right now. My pace has only been 317 wph, so I’m nowhere near 5,000. I’m hoping I’ll speed up in my next session. Sometime tonight I also want to make up my 58 minute deficit. I’d love to finish, but the book isn’t likely to go short, so we’ll have to see! Be back later with what will probably be the final update.

Update #3: I made a tactical error by delaying the start of my final session and now I’m just too wiped to do it. I’m going to sleep. At least I learned something! I won’t make this mistake tomorrow. :D Good night!
