    I’ve been enjoying the writing sprints. I probably won’t be able to make it today as I have a meeting when the chats are on todya, but I reached my target yesterday and hope to add another point to my score today.

    I’ll beat this revision into shape somehow!

  2. Dara says:

    Wasn’t able to get much writing done this weekend or join the sprints but I’m coming back tonight :)

    Woke up with some kind of bug, so I’m flat on my back. What a perfect position to write. Check back in later when I’ve reached my goal.

  4. Emily Allen says:

    I wrote all weekend and that’s a first for me. I usally take it off, but now that I’m doing this festival it’s giving me the motivation to write on the weekends.

    Yeah to me :)

  5. Kristina Mathews says:

    2 more points today. I would keep writing but my kids need to be picked up from school. Maybe I’ll get lucky and be able to triple my word count. Or maybe I’ll get some laundry done.

  6. Katrina says:

    Today was a struggle. I met my goal, and probably would’ve given up if I hadn’t wanted that point so darned bad. But it took me a lot longer than usual and I’m not happy with most of the words on the screen.

    Oh well. Tomorrow. Tomorrow.

    • Kim Law says:

      So proud of you for not giving up, Katrina! Hopefully when you reread the words, you’ll like more than you realize. If not, just think of the great habits you’re creating by continuing to push forward even when it’s hard!

  7. Nancy H. says:

    Another 1000+ words, another two points. Not sure how much longer I can keep it up, but it’s been great these last two days.

    Day fifteen. Goal met and surpassed. 662 words. Writing new words every day really challenges the plotter in me. I see where these not only belong, but see plot holes I didn’t before. This story I’m working on is the second of a trilogy and writing it like this is really helping me make it strong enough to stand alone if someone hasn’t read the first story without boring reader’s of the first story with repetition. Thanks sisterhood.

    This is really fun, ladies. I’m so glad you did this. It’s helped me stay accountable. :) Met my goal AGAIN today!!

  10. Jena Lang says:

    It took me a little longer than usual to meet my word count goal today. But I did it!

  11. I met my goal for 7 days’ worth. LOL I got lucky with enough scattered minutes at work and no distractions at home, and wrote over 3700 words to finish the book! \o/ It’s been almost a year since I could say that, so it feels really good.

    I’m not slacking over the next few days, though. I do have another project I need to do some revisions on so I can finish it, and a few other items on my goals metrics that I can focus on so I keep up the momentum.

  12. Day 15: 2,238 words :) Thanks to Addison hosting the sprints, and then me and Macy meeting back in the chat room later tonight, and then me and Macy text sprinting. :)

  13. Kristina Mathews says:

    I decided to skip the laundry and managed to get out 4,500 hundred words. It’s great to start a new story when so many ideas are just flowing. But I know that I’ll get sidetracked later this week, with Parent Club meetings and school funcitons so I am trying to do as much as I can when I can.
