Today was super slow and as of 7:30 I only had 800 some odd words. Thankfully, Andrea challenged me to a race to 1,000 words from the point we were at and I did it. It wasn’t as easy as on the previous two days since I hadn’t planned on the perspective that I’d been writing in but I did it. My word count for the day is 2,068.
Honestly, if you’re struggling to get your word count, find a friend and race. It will help so much, especially if you’re competitive like I am.
Oh and on an exciting for me note: on tumblr I follow the blog writing-questions-answered and due to a scene that will be coming up for book 2 that I’m unsure of how I should write it, I asked WQA a question to see if she had any advice for me. Her blog says that it takes 1-2 weeks for a response so that’s what I was planning on (the scene is a ways out so that’s fine for me). I posted this morning so figured I’d get a response in the middle of the month. However when I checked my tumblr a little before 5 o’clock this evening, I discovered that she’d already responded. The response was awesome and it will help my book so much. If you’re a writer with a tumblr, follow her blog. It’s great.
