An experiment and a challenge: 6,000 words today

I had a plan for today. Aiming for 3, 7, 7, 3 x 21, 300 words every 21 m Then I realized I was getting started much later than I needed to for my original plan to work the way I wanted. It’s 11:03 am. I need a new plan. I’m going to stick with … Continue reading An experiment and a challenge: 6,000 words today

Tomorrow I resume the challenge to reach 6000 words in a day

Today I haven’t written any fiction. I have a daily writing streak I could keep alive by writing something now, but I don’t think I’m going to.

It could happen. … Continue reading One-third is not three-thirds (challenge update)

This has been a difficult book to write. I’m not sure why. At the moment my brain is trying to resolve a plotting issue that’s driving me crazy. Time to get up and get started. If things continue as they have I need a good 14 hours of writing to reach 6000 words today. Yeah. … Continue reading Challenge day eleven (some books do not write themselves)
