The First Official Progress Report For My Novel
I just posted yesterday on how much work I had done on the novel up to the end of February. At the end of February, I figured I was at about 20,000 words.
This first weekly report is actually for the first ten days of March. From now on, I’ll be posting progress every Tuesday. These are going to be short posts. Just the totals and a quick summary.
The weekly total word count for this week is 17710 words.
For me, that’s pretty remarkable. While that is for ten days and not a seven day week this time, I hope I can keep going close to it.
My daily goal had been 500 words per day but I am setting it in my software to 1000 now. I am doing this mostly to make figuring out a daily count easier. My writing software just gives me a percentage of the goal on a daily basis. I use a six character word count.
The total words written for the story so far is 39,747.
Just short of the 40,000 word mark. I had to stop last night. Besides needing to get up early, I couldn’t type any more.
Next word count report will be next Tuesday (technically the third week of March).
