Halfway There Challenge!


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) ;)




Remember, don\'t put off what you should do today, for it will be yesterday, tomorrow!

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.

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...



JulNo 07 Winner, Back for more.

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 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.
