Easter Writing Marathon

So somehow the public holidays have aligned just perfectly so I have 5 full days off in a row. This is a tremendous, amazing thing. I have 5 days to write. Sure, I also have two church services and numerous social occasions but, come on. FIVE DAYS. Even if I only get an hour or two each day to write, it’s more than I’ve had in… well, it’s been three months since I started this job.

Here’s where the book is sitting right this moment:


11654 / 70000 words. 17% done!

My goal is to get to 20,000 words by the end of the five days. That’s roughly 1700 words per day, which I think is achievable.

I’d also like to try and write a blog post per day, or every couple of days, to check in and ‘prime’ my writing brain. Here are some of the posts I’ve been writing in my brain to and from work lately:
– How I Am Exactly Like Richard Castle
– My First DIY Project
– my experience in writing the second book
– Crit Partners

So, we’ll see how that goes.

Right now I’m heading to church service numero uno, but I’ll be back tonight or tomorrow morning to let you know how I’m doing.

Happy Easter, everyone!
