Most productive day: Tuesday 25 March, 3,576 words
Least productive day: Sat 22 and Sun 23 March, 8 words (noted in my journal for 8x31 story… to be completed tomorrow)
For the first time since week Week Eight, my average word count for the week has exceeded the magical 2,732 words per day. Five sub par weeks is precisely why I have a two day deficit to make up somewhere. It’s hard enough keeping pace (I blew out this weekend after nutting out some good numbers during the week), so not that optimistic at the mo.
On the plus side, during the week I got two pieces accepted for publication, one in print, one online. It’s always feast of famine with these things. Nothing for two months, then two in two days. The print publication was the story I mentioned a few weeks ago that I submitted in July 2007 and had given up on. Any news like that bouys the spirits (and the requirement to write bio notes helps the word count).
I’m still waiting for the results of two competitions I entered, one of which was supposed to be announced in March (I’ve Googled my darndest, but I doesn’t look like an announcement has been made).
Status report for Week Fourteen: still going. That’s all I really needed to say.
