Day 19 – Goal 2,000 (cumulative 43,000)
It was the first day after the retreat. I thought 2,000 wouldn’t be too much of a stretch. I came close with 1,800 words. There really isn’t much to say about this day. I wrote on the bus on the way into work, and when I got home I sat down and got it done. Actual – 42,800
Day 20 – Goal 2,150 (cumulative 45,000)
I knew I wanted to Tuesday at 45,000. My plan was to only have about 2,000 words, but I had to make up the extra from the previous day as well. It turned out to be a good writing day. I got some words in the morning on the bus, then I got a few in the afternoon during lunch. Tuesdays are fairly low key, so I was able to get a fair amount written without it feeling rushed. Actual – 45,000
Day 21 – Goal 2,500 (cumulative 47,500)
If I am being honest, I knew 2,500 was going to be tough. I had a lot to do, and I didn’t sit down and get words over the lunch hour. That was my big mistake. After work, I needed to write up a grocery list, deal with dinner, and I had gymnastics in the evening. After gymnastics, I didn’t have the energy to get many words. I didn’t even par for the day. I was disappointed, but sometimes things don’t go as planned. Actual – 46,300
