It’s hard not to feel like I’m Queen of the Mountain of Words when I’ve been on a streak of 300-400 words per day and now for the second day in a row I kill that old number by a lot. I still know I can do more, do better, but this feels good right now.
Yesterday I wrote 1,628 fiction words, and 2,639 words total. Writing over 1,000 blog words is new, I believe. I can’t remember doing that before. And I didn’t count the A-Z words because those were previously written and counted in fiction words somewhere.
So in other news, here’s the stats block for the last week:
Weekly total words: 8,433
Weekly total fiction words: 5,458
Weekly total blog words: 2,975
Difference from last week: +112%
Weekly rank: 2 (of 14) (wow!!!)
April fiction total: 4,241
March fiction total: 12,576
February fiction total: 9,217
January fiction total: 18,615
002* Words: 2,505
003** Words: 4,241
Ahh. It’s good! So I should point out that last week I decided not to use 002 as my A-Z fiction, and then on Saturday, I did just that. I actually have multiples of some letters, but I’m choosing the best one (or the one I like the most, or who knows how I’ll choose, but I’m only choosing one) to post each day. So when I finally get 001 published, and then when it comes time to publish 002, there will be quite a bit of content that’s new, I think. Maybe. Or at least a couple extra A’s.
OK, that’s it, except for these two extra notes below this paragraph. I hope everyone has a fantastic Monday!
*002 is the number of this story in my pursuit of Pulp Speed. It’s as good a code name as any and allows me to easily keep track of which story I was working on in my word count tracking spreadsheet.
**003 is the number of my April Camp NaNo project. I don’t usually do two fiction things at once. Ever. But now I am. So there are two to keep track of!
