I wrote words today! 2395, new total 6079.
Got you updated, too! Fab work!
That's not too impressive, I know, but these particular new words were hard won.
On the contrary, that makes your total all the more impressive! I've updated your word count in the Index!
I'm in a similar boat myself. I'm only up to 3,907 words, but I have fought to earn every single one of them, so I'm extra proud of my total.
Every word written is impressive!
And with my latest fic I have reached my 5000 word goal for November!
Which is good because the holiday season always gets busy for me so hard to predict how much more time I'll have for writing this month.
Yay! Congratulations on keeping on keeping on, @Pandora, @Mira_Jade, and @devilinthedetails. Every word counts, and every ounce of hard work you put into each of them counts! We see that and commend the heck out of you.
I’m up to 3791 now—also hard-won. Still technically a touch ahead on my goal, but we shall see how long that lasts: I’m now grappling with Darth Covid on top of everything else and need to prioritize resting up. But whatever happens, I’ll cherish the good vibes and encouragement radiating from this thread!
Ouch, sorry to hear that, @Findswoman! Hope you feel better soon!
Best wishes in your battle against Darth Covid, @Findswoman!
With 350 words for the Angst challenge I am now at a total of 4560 words
Nicely done! I've added your new total to the Index.
As for myself, I managed to write another couple hundred words on my mod!challenge entry for a new total of 4,625. That's still a modest achievement compared to my goal, but I figured out how to use the word exsanguinate in my story, which is a win all its own.
@Mira_Jade, that’s great! Every single bit counts, and it’s important to celebrate and acknowledge those writing triumphs that are not about word count—they’re still triumphs! (I’m waiting on tenterhooks to see what you did with that word! )
And I have now crossed the 4K mark myself: 4356, and my Mod!Challenge piece is in its home stretch!
Like a picture is worth a thousand words, every exsanguinate is likewise worth a thousand words.
Good job being such productive writers, everybody!
Up to 4528 now, and I’ve accomplished one of my personal writing goals for this Word Race month: wrapping up my Mod!Challenge story! Now I guess I have to find something else to write 500-some words on before the 30th!
Had a surprisingly productive day, despite not feeling like I actually made much progress. New total is 8,911!
These latest words, like the previous hard-gained ones, have all been on my current (and since I lack the gift of multi-tasking, my only) progressing work, my mod!challenge story. Currently "Untitled." It's finally starting to get easier, which is good--because I have words and words to write still before THE END, and I would like to get there before the deadline.
Way to go, you two! Got you updated. Let the productivity flow through you! (And Pandora, I’m the same way in terms of not being able to work on more than one story at a time, so I completely understand!)
After not being on the computer for several days to write, I made it to a total of 10,623.
With 500 words for my drabbles and 545 words for the angst challenge I made it to 5605 words
I completely messed up my rhythm by switching to editing and formatting mode on my mod!challenge and then adulting got the better of me for a while, but I'm back with 581 words for a new total of 11,188. Let's see how close I can get to my goal with only a week left
1186 words, new total of 12,374
Nicely done, all! The Index has been updated!
I'm still keeping on keeping on at 5,814 words, but every word is one I didn't have before, so that's personally very exciting to see.
Still working on the mod!challenge story as the deadline looms ever closer over my head, and THE END remains off in the distance ahead of me. I think I might well be doing an old school all-nighter, undergraduate style, tonight...
ETA: 6176 words. Still not done, but it's 4:30 AM, and I need to sleep off the last of the sinus headache that attacked me this evening. That and I'm going to need every minute I can get tomorrow if I'm to finish this thing before the deadline strikes.
With the angst challenge finished I am now at 7225 words total
And still not done. But I'm working on it.
