Pressing on

So, just over 1700 words today. Not quite the 2K I was shooting for, but pretty darn good. At least I broke 60K.

I also spent a fair bit of time brainstorming the heck out of several key plot points, and I feel really good about what I came up with. Bonus.

I need to rewrite my synopsis in a major way, but right now I'm going for wordage. I'd love to be at 65K by the end of the week, but whatever I don't get done this week will just get rolled into August's goal. As long as I'm at 80K (!) by the end of this month I'll be happy.

Yea, Jenny! What a great accomplishment. You can sooo meet your new goal.

Thanks, Carol!

I built up some good momentum last night, so if I can just keep going (and maybe if work stays slow) I might pull it off.

*crosses fingers*

Is your word counter right? If it is and you finish this month, I am going to be soooooo impressed.

Carol -

If the word counter you're seeing says 60.3K, then yes - it's right.

I'd love to finish this month but I doubt it. I'm betting my final word count will actually end up *over* 100K, but then I'll pare it down in edits.

So I don't see myself doing 40K in a month. But I certainly wouldn't complain if the momentum carried me away. *g*

Well, give it a shot anyway. Do you have some blocks of time coming up? I can't wait until you finish. It will be exciting. Bagging confetti as we speak.
