Well, yesterday went well. I did not get my 5,000 words like I wanted but I did get more than double the minimum. Yesterday’s total came to 3,531 words.
I also got to participate in a kickoff party held on Northwestern State University campus last night. Meeting and speaking to other writers has always inspired me to get back to my keyboard and write.
One event that spurred me on was the 15-minute sprint. We had three sprints in which I managed to type out more than a 1,000 words. Between sprints, we would discuss our genres and something about what we were working on.
All in all, I enjoyed my first day of this year’s challenge. I do not know if I will be as ambitious in my writing today. Sometime this morning, I will be going out to vote and there are things I want to vote for and some that I want to vote against.
My goal for today will be 2,500 words. I think this is doable. Now, as for my story, I may have come up with an ending last night for it. Also, this may be more of a novella than a book. That means that I may have to work on that second project in order for me to get my goal of 75k words this month.
