So only 752 words. Total words now stand at 6959, and I really need to make myself a set of character cards, because I keep finding I’ve forgotten the minor characters’ names and it’s slowing me up!
Yesterday was a complete fail of a day, but even so I added 90 words. Back to the breakfast table routine this morning, and here we are.
- Words written today: 1035
- Total words: 5027
Hmm… completely forgot I had said I would do my morning words at the breakfast table, but then had a thunderclap moment when I sat down at my desk to do some other work and instead did my morning pages first.
- Today’s words 1019
- Total words 3887
The eagle eyed among you will notice that today’s words added to yesterday’s total words don’t add up to today’s total words. This is because the “today’s words” figure is the “write or die” count, and the “total words” count is the pages/word count of the document where I cut and paste them after the time is up. Why they don’t add up… well, I don’t think I care enough to find out, just yet anyway.
I decided to try using Write or Die first thing in the morning, while I’m having my breakfast. So this morning I wrote 1081 words – they were bad words, an incoherent and unsatisfactory attempt at a key scene, but nevertheless they were written.
