While living and working in Edinburgh in 2008 I set out to write one million words in 366 days... but only managed 800,737.

Sunday, May 18, 2008

Status Report: Week Twenty

Week Twenty – The Stats

Weekly Wordcount: 22,455 words

Average: 3,208 words per day

Most productive day: Today (Sunday 18 May), 4,545 words

Least productive day: Wednesday 14 May, 2,485 words

Year-to-date: 365,540 words (14,241 words behind target)

Adjusted required daily word count: 2,795

Verdict: doable

Managed to shave a day’s worth of writing off the deficit this week, thanks to some pretty ruthless revision on my short stories (I’m a few weeks away from spruiking my collection to publishers) and feeling my way back into Novel A, which I’ve spoken about too much already.

That was a long sentence.
