View Full Version : exceeded word goal for the day

06-18-2005, 11:04 PM
I wrote 3,047 words in my novel yesterday- and some of them I actually intend to keep as is! For me who averages only 1-2 thousand words a day, this is a call for a happy dance. Of course, when I told my family they stared at me like I have two heads. Which is why I'm posting here, because I'm shamelessly patting myself on the back in front of people who probably understand why I'm doing the happy dance. :snoopy: :)

Congratulations Alanna! That is something to be very proud of... :Clap: :Clap:

I found that if I keep a list of my word counts everyday, it inspired me to keep going and meet or beat the previous day's count. Sometimes, I only got 250 words, but most were right around 1500-2000. I finished a novel in 4 months!

Don't lose your momentum...keep going!

Thanks you guys! I just got back from a few days away, hence the long wait for the thank you. I can type again! :)

Great goings, Alanna. Now, is it too much to ask to up your goal? :)

lol, I just did. My word goal per day is now 3,000 words- not that I'm reaching it every day, but it certainly keeps me typing! I just got back from 5 days away from my computer...I'm so glad to be back! :)
