I did it.
There were times last night when I wasn’t sure it would happen. The first of those was when I didn’t actually start my final push until 9:45 PM. I still needed 1,500 words at that point so I knew that no matter how fast I typed, I was going into overtime.
At 50,007, I decided I could call it a day. That was around 10:30, I believe.
I still wrote fast, but due to the delayed start I was later finishing than I like (for full disclosure, I don’t ever sleep well and I get up at 5:30 AM so I need to go to bed relatively early).
Still, it was worth it.
Challenges for the Day
Today’s Goal: 2,000 words
I thought about reducing my goal after hitting 50,000 but I still have to finish Scouts 3 so I’m leaving it at 2,000. I am over 60% complete on Scouts 3 so I’m hoping to keep the pace up and type “The End” on the 30th. If I don’t I will be very close.
Number of Words to Date: 50,007 words
I have reached the goal word count but I still have a book to finish. If I can continue my pace of around 2,200 words per day for the last 8 days that will put me right about where I want to be with Scouts of the Apocalypse 3.
