As you may know, I’m participating in Merrilee Faber’s ‘100 Words for 100 Days’ challenge, where I have to write at least 100 words a day, for 100 days. It’s a motivational challenge, and as I posted a while ago, it’s really keeping me accountable. There have been a few days where I really didn’t want to write, but because of the challenge, I have.
I have a personal goal of 300 words a day, and if I miss it, then I have to catch up as soon as possible. I’ve tried to get my 300 words a day down, but I’ve had quite a few misses. (I’ve caught up though!)
Thursday was Day 25, a quarter of the way there! I thought I’d share with you some statistics.
Total Words Written: 10,021
Average per Day: 400.8
Most Written in a Day: 2,028 on 18 July
Least Written in a Day (excluding 0 words counts): 104 on 13 July
Days Missed (0 word count): 3
As you can see, I’m averaging roughly 400 words a day, which is excellent. I ran the figures without the 2K, and only got 330 words, which is still above my 300 words a day total. If I keep going the way I am, I should have 40K on my WIP by the time this challenge is finished!
We participants are also going to do a mini challenge: 5,000 words in 5 days. We’re going to start on Saturday, and aim to have 5,000 words by Wednesday. This challenge seems a little beyond my reach, but I’m certainly going to try!
