June Challenge

Well, June is upon us, and with it winter down here in the southern hemisphere.

With it I am setting myself a new challenge – 2K a Day. For the next sixty days I plan to set myself the task of writing 2K words a day. I had initially planned for 3K a day, but thought that might be a little too optimistic. I shall certainly aim for that if I can, but the 2K mark will be the minimum.

The initial phase will be to finish off the short stories for the second volume of Pure Escapism. If I can keep that up rough drafts should be done by the end of the week. After that I will start work on other things, perhaps some of the stories for the third volume, but hopefully also getting back to working on a novel.

The good news is that I hit the mark for the first day, doing just a bit under 2100 words.

    that’s fantastic! Always nice to kick off a new month with a solid word count. I hit 2199 on the 1st which felt wonderful, because I’ve been floundering for a bit really 😉

    I could – should – have got more done, but I did slack off for a while there.

    Still, it was a good start as I had been floundering fora while too.
