WriDay: Lucky July 23rd


The other two WriDays have been on days that I couldn't participate. In fact, they were days that I barely wrote at all. A holiday and a weekend. Neither of which I can afford to spend a lot of time in front of my computer without my mother saying the words "anti social" at least a dozen times.

So I propose a weekday WriDay. And not just any day, on the 23rd. This is my family's luckiest number so we'll see if it holds true.

What I'm hoping is that because I'm almost at 50k and this novel isn't even close to half way done is that a little over a week before the end of this month I can pop out a bunch of words (20k perhaps? That'll be my goal for Thursday. 15-20k) So maybe by the end of the month this novel will be done (or damn close to it).

Wish me luck and I hope there will be other crazy writers pounding away at their keyboards on the 23rd. ^.^

Hey, I'm in. :) Can always use more impetus to write, and WriDays seem to do it for me. I'll shoot for 5k, myself.

Great! I know 15k is doable for me in a day... I once wrote 50k in three days (really crappy 50k, but it was 50k) and I'm hoping to be at 50k by the 23rd. *looks at counter* I expect to be higher than that by then XD

But 5k is an excellent goal... I know I haven't been pulling nearly that many in a long time <.< Really need to if I plan on writing at least 15k on Thursday.

Who else has goals for Thursday?

If my family cooperate I'm going to go for 5k, that should get me ahead of target and give me some breathing space at the end of the month.

I'm going to have to pass on this one. It's one of the few days my boyfriend is home, so I really want to spend time with him. Good luck to the rest of you on meeting your goals for the day. :)

This sounds interesting. This is also the only one I've time for. The first wriday I originally had plans for (then got sick and had to cancel); the second I had friend's staying over on the Saturday and they didn't leave 'til 3pm Sunday, and by that time I was too tired to write.

Think I'll also go for 15k along with you, FantasyFreak. :]

That's great! I have a 15k partner ^.^

Good luck, by the way... I don't know about you but I've only done 15k in one day three times in my life... and those were three days in a row ^.^;;

-checks calendar- YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY! I have absolutely nothing to do on the 23rd! -skips around joyfully- I will be participating, then, and I will be trying to hit 40k at the very least, but I want to try and finish. Mostly because after the 26th I will have no writing time the rest of the week. O.o Oh well. I'm determined. ;)

I think I'll aim for 5K. I've yet to hit a 5K day, though I've had several close ones and today might end up being one. I could get myself to 45K then ^.^

I'll go the middle ground and try for 10K. Last wriday I only managed 8.8K, so I'm up for trying again. XD

And, hey, I might just try to write 15K... If I can focus on writing and not procrastinating. XD

Yeah, no procrastinating, any of us!

It helps that I told my family ^.^;; My mom looked at me like I was crazy. "You just reached 50k, why do you need to do this too!?"

Um... because I want to get the damn thing done! >.< I want it finished. I want it out of my head and onto the page so I can edit it and send it to an agent or an editor or somebody so it can get published!

Besides, there's three more books in the series than need writing not to mention the half a dozen (at least) other novels I want to write!

This is exactly why I'm still writing. I just want to get the novel finished. :D

And that definitely won't work. The more you write the more ideas are going to magically spawn. It's a vicious, never-ending cycle. We're all trapped in it together. XD

Unfortunately it's only this book series that seems to keep spawning new ideas. Fortunately I can toss a few into the fourth book since it is by no means planned out at all and barely has any ideas.

And yay for more people! Later tonight I'm going to make a list of people and their goals and stick it onto the first post ^.^ That way I have a record of who's joining me on tomorrow's wriday
