Halfway There Challenge!

JSBulldog89 - 7-12-2007 at 02:33 PM

Well, Sunday, July 15 is *basically* the halfway point of JulNo. You should be almost halfway to 50,000 words by then.

To help reach the halfway finish line, I thought I'd create this challenge. Post a goal here, and for 24 hours on Sunday, see just how far you can get! (Hopefully far enough to get past that 25k mark...)

i have been go, go going for the last two days, reaching 26,000, after a week late start, so having the day off tomorrow, to recharge. I like to keep ahead, in case of unexpected hold ups. Also have The Zing Thing challenge, (a local one) from the 27th-28th of July.

I did 4,622 today, so will attempt 2,000 on Sunday. (day of rest) ;)

Doubled the dare challenge, 4039. Do I get a chocolate fish? :rolleyes:

Well done :D

Tomorrow is a public holiday here, so I'd like to be at 30,000 including today and tomorrow, as it's the best chance I have to cover some ground.

Oh wow, I found this late. Well, there's still 8.5 hours left of today, so I'm going to aim for 7K.

GAH!! I hate being behind~

I'm about done writing for today. Did 4191. Pretty nice, since yesterday I did a whopping 168 :crying: More importantly, I love where I went with the plot today. I totally started explaining things. Maybe I'll actually get somewhere by 50k...

Well, I've got 3 more hours left of today and I've done 2.5k so far today. We'll say 4k for the day and see how far I get. :]

Six hours left and 25k is nowhere in sight, but as I've made that my unofficial new goal I suppose that's not really a bad thing. Given my pace over the last couple days, think I'll shoot for 2k. That's sufficiently insane. XD

Techically 1 hour left 'cause I have to sleep earlyish so I can actually wake up tomorrow.... And I have a little under 2k left before 25 k... so i'll just say i'm aiming to get to 25 k 'cause i'm too lazy to do the math. *stops wandering around the forums and goes off to write*

I got 4,383 and still have 2 hours left of today... but I'm tired and going to bed. :] Yay me.

Good luck everyone else!

I only ended up getting two thousand and some. :crying: The reason? I ditched writing during the evening to go through some grandmaster chess games, because I hadn't practiced any chess at all during the weekend. That's what comes of being a crazy chess player as well as a crazy writer.
