#LeapAheadWritingMarathon Day 3: Wednesday Word-Count Challenge

Wednesday, February 3, 2016

Leap Ahead Marathon LogoI know I said at the beginning of this month-long marathon that we were going to focus on writing every day rather than trying to achieve a specific daily/weekly/monthly word count.

But what’s a marathon month without a few word-count challenges, right?

Your Wednesday word-count challenge for this week, if you choose to accept it, is:
Write 50 more words today than you wrote yesterday.

That means, for me, my challenge today is to write at least 1,519 words today, since I wrote 1,469 in my 1k1h sprint yesterday.

For you, it means look at your word-count total from yesterday and add 50 to it and try to reach that today.

Good news for those of you who might not have written anything yesterday—that means you only need to write 50 words of your story today in order to meet the challenge! 😉

So, who’s up for the challenge?

    So I did write a little, but did not exceed my total for yesterday. But I did write some, so I’ll take it. 😀

    Well, at 8:20ish, I was feeling lazy and like I might just blow off writing tonight. But then I reminded myself that I needed to write something. Even if it was just 50 words . . . 100 words. And oh, how I struggled to get those first 100 or so words written.

    Then, the next thing I knew, it was an hour and ten minutes later, and I’d written 1,783 words and finished the chapter I started in my 1k1h sprint yesterday. So not only did I write more than 50 words over yesterday’s total, I finished a chapter—and had a good interaction between my heroine and hero.
