Target April fool Week Two Report

#targetalprilfool #writing

It’s the end of week two and I have not made my 5000 word mark. I fell short by 899 words, which is a lot.

Here is how the numbers broke down

Start of week one 13/1/14 20139 words
Finish of week one 19/1/14 24101 words
Total words for the week 3962

However, there were some positives. I wrote more words in week two than I did in week one. Last Wednesday I wrote more than 1000 words in one day, a first for me.

Also, I am finding that writing every day, even after just two weeks, has really helped me to write faster and with more confidence.

My aim is to make it to 30000 words by the end of week three.
The end goal remains, that by week 13 (1st April) I have finished first draft of my novel, Lonely Susan.

Can I do this? I don’t know, but I’m going to try really hard.

  1. Keep going, Rick. Every word added brings you closer to The End. Which reminds me, better get back to my writing.

  2. Thanks Adam, you have been writing plenty of those micropoems lately.
