Congrats ap123! 2000 words is a tremendous effort.
I forced out 500 words yesterday.
Read books by AWers!
Congrats to you on the 500 words, on hard days, 500 words can feel like a marathon.
I did the unbelievable...hitting my 126,000 word mark after starting at 117,164. No fan fiction but I will work on that tomorrow because tomorrow I'm only aiming for a total of 132,000.
All right, so...
4,623 on My Wife's Brothers (so far, I'm not done, have to get to 132k )
1,823 on a story line on my Wife's Brothers that I had originally intended to make a brand-new story but it wound up being a subplot about the characters I'm already writing, so I integrated it into My Wife's Brothers on a much, much later chapter, and after a few edits it'll fit with the rest of the story, but it's the first time in a long time I'd written out of order, so I hope it works out.
6,456 so far
+ 2,000 on one fan fiction
+ 2,000 on the other...
That's a little over 9,000 words. Wish me luck guys.

I didn't get to work on any of my fan fiction, but...
I did a whopping 6,661 words on a brand new story I started today, in 1 day, and my usual 6,000+ a day on 1319. That's over 12,000 words, folks. It's 2:13 AM and I'm going to bed. Finally.
That's amazing Christina!
How long do your second round edits take?
I've been writing scene breakdowns today. I'm kid-free tonight so hopefully I'll be able to flesh out a couple of scenes and crack 20,000 words.
I've been MIA the last couple of days and I havnt got much to show for it either.
230 words tonight, hopefully tomorrow I can be more productive.
Did my first 6,000 words of the day in my original fic "1319", and now I'm about to try to do 4,000 words in my fan fiction Rock Star, and finally, I'll try to write three chapters in my other original short-short fic which only has 20 chapters, the shortest work that's not a short story that I've written yet. I'll let you know when I'm done.
French Maiden, sometimes that's just how it goes. Glad you got the 230 in while you were able today.
Ben, there's a lot to be said for the "day job," kinda hard to write when you can't pay the bills/have kids complaining they're hungry, etc.
Christina, have you always been this productive, or did you train yourself using NaNo, or something like that?
Spell-It-Out and Kittens, you've both been super productive!
Anna, I hope you had a beautiful night to yourself, whether you used it for writing or not.
I didn't do any writing yesterday (other than blogging), I gave myself the day off.
Today, I wrote another 1000 words. Much to my shock, I could have kept going if I didn't have to stop and do the Mama thing.
WIP: Frag Hag
Goal: 85,000 words by June 1.
Daily goal: Still squishy at the moment, trying to get back into the discipline.
6,200 words today on "1319"
5,458 words on "Sleepwalker"
I axed one of my fan fictions because I just realized 12,000 words a day is the most I can do, so I'm only working on 2 WIP's at the moment.
No, I owe it all to my characters who are always nagging me to write the things they wanna do. I get lost in the story and the next thing I know I've just done thousands upon thousands of words in one day. I've never participated in NanoWriMo, but this year I'm planning to.
I got about 800 words in today, couldn't quite get back to the groove I was in yesterday, but I'll take it
I have a scene in my head, it's just a matter of getting it to come out. I've been distracted with life recently and it's starting to bug me. I need to make writing a priority again. It's only been a week, but it feels like an eternity.
I know how you feel. When I'm in an episode of MDD, what hurts the most is not being able to write. I just can't and knowing that makes me sadder. I did 3,300 words on "1319" today and a little more on "Sleepwalker", but I am going to go to sleep now even if it's 8:49 PM here where I live because I'm tired.
Progress on the WIP short story: 2,585 words. 40 words but actually more, since I had to "murder my darlings" in the section that stumped me and rewrite it a second time. Had to sit still, read some novels on the side, and let my MC prod me on which angle would work out best.
It did. =)
Current WIP: Untitled short story - 5,663 words
Four Stars, No Stripes (working title) - 31,175 words (On hiatus)
I'm not working on my main WIP today. Finished off a short story instead, one that I'm going to enter in a competition, which I've never done. I've no delusions of winning, but it feels good to be getting it out there!
