#LeapAheadWritingMarathon Day 24: Wednesday Word-Count Challenge—Write Your Age x 50

Wednesday, February 24, 2016

Leap Ahead Marathon LogoIt’s once again time for our weekly word-count challenge! There are only five days left in the Leap-Ahead Writing Marathon, so I’ve picked something that sort of ties in with that.

Your Wednesday word-count challenge for this week, if you choose to accept it, is:

Take your current age and multiply it by 50. Write at least that many words today.

That means, for me, my challenge is to write at least 2,200 words today. (Jeepers, I’d better get started!)

This is where being younger helps considerably. 😉

So, who’s up for the challenge?

    Maybe my age x 50/2… LOL!

    To try to achieve my word-count goal, I’ll be doing two 1k1hr sprints tonight: 6:30 p.m. and 9:15 p.m. (U.S. Central time) if any of you want to join in.

    (I know those times sound odd—it’s a new episode of Criminal Minds at 8 p.m., so I have to work around that, since I don’t have a DVR anymore.)

    I might join in around 7ish.

    My first 1k1hr tonight resulted in 1,388 words (it was the start of a new chapter, so it was a little slow going at first). Ended in the middle of a tense scene with lots of dialogue, so it should be easy to get back into at 9:15 for my second 1k1hr. It also means I only need 812 more words to hit my Wednesday Word-Count Challenge of 2,200 words!

    I wrote another 1,153 words in round 2 (plus some research on 19th century British ports in Gibraltar) for a total of 2,541 for the day. Not bad on a goal of 2,200!
