Working on a manuscript and expecting it to run ~90K words. Trying to stick to a schedule of 1K words/day with first draft finished in June. Then plan to spend several months revising and, hopefully, have it ready to query in December or January.

May you accomplish your goal!

Ah! Good luck with your goal! You've given yourself a decent amount of time and a reasonable daily goal! I wish you the best of luck with the drafting and beyond! :)

Broke 10K today, which puts me a little behind schedule. But between the day job and traveling, I think I'm making a pretty good pace.

1-2k a day or so is also what I'm aiming for!

Sometimes I simply have no time, and I get nothing done. Other days I sit down and write 4000 words in a day, so there's that too. Good luck!
