August 1st WriDay- Staying Strong


We all know how it feels to cross that finish line and be done. BUT! Many of us know how it feels to not finish your goal on time. Experienced racers of all sorts know to keep going strong, not to hold up at the finish line and stop instantly. So my challenge for you is this: keep writing on August 1st! Why stop at the minimum?

There are two challenges in this one:
1- If you are done with your 50,000 word count before August 1st, look at your average WC per day. (Final July WC / 31.) Beat that number.

2- If you are not done with your 50,000 word count before August 1st... get it one day late! It's better to have finished the novel, even if late, than to leave it as a rather large WIP.

I'm not amazing at images but I'll supply a special badge to winners of this challenge.

Here is the badge folks:

Just copy paste into your signature and remove the asterisks. Same size as Freaky Friday and same height as the fireworks.

Technically you can't add the words to your word count since they wouldn't be written in July. So, let's just post our word count here!

Because I have a feeling I'm not going to finish my novel in 50k words and want inspiration to continue writing after I've won :P

Travelling away, bringin' on the notebooks. I'll never forgive myself for not finishing, if I first don't finish on time. ;) (Hopefully we won't need to go to such lengths, but who knows. I may have to pay for all that paranoid procrastinating.)

I plan on finishing the 50k by tomorrow, but my novel will only be halfway done, so let more writing commence!

I'm pretty sure I'll still be writing... Now, WHICH story I'm working on, that's the real question. Count me in. AugNo, here I come.





It's official. I'm writing a crime/thriller/mystery novel with GLBT elements. So psyched.

Traditionally these copy paste lists are to insert your name alphabetically so you can find it easily. I'll sort it even if I am on an ipod since I have nothing really to do.

Good luck! I only need to write one word (jk I'm still writing just not updating WC, as a joke).

EDIT: added Cracking Coda to the list.

I'm in, and not only for the 1st of August, but all the rest of the days, too, both in August, September and however many months I need to get done with a full draft. With the multitude of characters, plot and subplots I have going on, 50 000 would only get things started.

First I'll have to make it to the official 50 000. And then I'll see which goal I'll set to myself for August. It's going to be a busy work month, just as July, so I can guess something around 30-35 000, not more.

Just remember that anything you write/wrote today doesn't technically count in your word count! :)

My word count as of midnight august 1st was 51619, I don't think that reached the goal but my hands STILL hurt from writing for 7 hours straight, (2 hours hand writing 5 hours typing) If I find a decent book to wright in I'll do AugNo, & avoid the 10 day event...

August the 1st was, unfortunately, a long workday for me, and so were the following days. I've not had such a busy week for...well, weeks.

At least I did some serious plotting and brainstorming.

Anyway - already suffering from withdrawal, I finally got to some writing tonight, and will do my best to write at least a few chapters during the next two days off.

Word count: 41340
