Stalking the Wordcount Goal….

Not quite the word count I made yesterday, but it’s within the goal I’d set of 2-3K per day and it took less time and cost less angst: 2,744 new words today for a manuscript total of 58,759. A little under where I’d hoped to be by the end of this week, but not by much–I was shooting for 60-64,000. I hope I can keep this up, but I’m a little worried about impending slates of further financial paperwork–a task I hate so much I’d prefer to a thousand papercuts and a swim in lemon juice. But… it’s all got to get done. And it will if it kills me.

    I am concerned that word count will become more important than content. I’d rather you didn’t burn yourself out trying to make a deadline, artificial or not. Of course, if Inspiration is responsible for the fire under your tail, I’ll stand out of the way, but with a pail of water (in case Inspiration is infectious.) 🙂

  2. Sadly, I have no choice about the deadline–it’s not extendable at this point. But don’t worry about content–it’ll be fine even if I have to rewrite the whole beast in the revision process. This is just the first draft stage, so it’s often a bit less pretty than I’d like.

    First drafts are supposed to be messy, aren’t they? But I’m keeping you so I’ll shut up. Fluff the ‘towel monster’ for me; Bella looks so ‘wise’ in her picture.
