Challenge #3: Halfway Sprint!


The 15th and the 16th of July are like the halfway mark for JulNoWriMo. Guess what??? We're having a challenge!

The goal for this challenge is to write 10,000 words between the two days. (It doesn't matter if you write 2k one day and 8k the next, as long as it adds up to 10k!)

Hopefully, the winners of this challenge will then be close to, or even past, the halfway point of their novel--25,000 words.

If you want to join the madness, post here with your latest word count updates. Be sure to let us know if you complete the challenge! Good luck, and get writing!

Winners:

By the way, I may be doing this challenge. I haven't decided yet.

Edit: I have to reach 32,157 by Wednesday night, 11:59pm EST. I'm probably going to fail, but whatever!

I am. All on the Wednesday. Makes it more fun then. Although, I do have four hours off school on Tuesday morning, too... You never know - I might go for 20k. Then I'll actually be half way.

:D

I'll give it a shot. Knowing me I probably wont make it to 10k but no matter. It's always worth a shot and whatever I get will be good for the word count.

Sure, even though I'm already past halfway. I'll go for it. I don't work on Wednesday, so it might be fine. :)

Okay... I'm going for 10k both days. That'll bring me almost to where I should be. I'm getting started... after another game of Word Challenge.

Okay. I'm at 1,455/10k. I would have gotten more done, but I was sick this morning. I'm gonna go do PT with Campbell, and then I'll be back to try again.

Yeah, I'll be gone all day tomorrow, so I'll just be shooting for 5K today. I'm at about 3K right now, so I may end up somewhere between 6-8K. Just depends on how the rest of the day goes.

I'm not sure I'll manage the full 10k, but I'm going to really go for it for the next two hours. And then on paper by moonlight after that, I guess. I'll tell you how I've done tomorrow, but I'm disconnecting the internet at seven, I've decided...

I didn't write anything yesterday. I haven't written anything today, either. I fail. As long as I maintain my personal goal... I plan on writing around 3k today and 2.5k tomorrow to catch up.

Congratulations!!! :D :D :D (And a BIG congratulations to Rossiter for crossing the 50k mark!!! Way to go!)

I've only wrote about 2.4k in the past two days... so... I didn't do so well. I fell behind, actually. Ack. Busy life.

Damn it. Not being off school proved to be more of a distraction. I'm still trying to convince myself that I'll be able to catch up next week, when I've finished for the summer, but I can't see it happening. This isn't my month, I fear.

Ah well - congratulations to everyone who did it though. :)

*Dives in, slams door behind her* Peeks out the window.

Okay. I don't think they know I'm here. I'm undrcover at the library, because the internet at my house is down. Has been down since my last post, and will probably stay down for a few more days. I'll see if I can get to the forums every few days.

I got 10,029/10,000. And I promise there's an icon already made for this challenge. It's just that I don't have it. I'll post it here when I figure out a way to get it to you.

*Throws on camos* Don't worry. I'll make it back alive. *Bashed down door* For POOOOOOOONYYYYYYYYY!
