Writing and Other Afflictions

"If it was easy, everyone would do it." –Jimmy Dugan, "A League of Their Own"

Goal Reached!

After five weeks and one day, I reached my Clarion Write-A-Thon goal of 60,000 words. This included a 25-day road trip during which we visited two branches of our family, attended three conventions (one of which, Comic-Con, lasted an entire week), visited five cities, and stayed in six different hotels. Below, in case it is of interest, is my word count reached per day. Note that my Write-A-Thon page claims I only wrote 17 days, but I just forgot to log in some times. There were days I only got a couple hundred words in, but over 29 days of writing I averaged just over two thousand words a day. The most I got in a day was 4,121, and that was the day we flew from Boston to San Diego, so most of that was on an airplane. The fewest I wrote in a day when I wrote something was 144. You’ll notice the gap between 7/17 and 7/22; that was Comic-Con. (Also, I’m not sure what’s up with the word count on the 4th; I may have just written nothing that day but recorded it anyway.)

So yeah. NaNoWriMo, eat your heart out.
