Here’s my Day 4 stats: 3,991 for the day, bringing my total for the challenge to 11,480.
Not too shabby. Now, I should be at 12,000 to be completely on track for 30,000 by the end of next Friday. So I’m still a little behind. But I’m confident I can do another 4,000 words or more tomorrow, to get completely back on track.
Yesterday, I had the notion to focus on a short story today, and I started out going that way. I recalled a cop story I’d started a while back, but set aside after all of 300 words or so. I picked it back up and got another 716 words down on it today, but I sort of lost interest a bit, got bogged down. So I shifted back over to the Scifi Thriller again. I’ve now got 12,069 words down on that story. Pretty good, considering earlier this week I was at all of about 4,000, give or take.
So I guess tomorrow I’ll try to finish that cop story, or just write a different short. I’d still like to get those three more shorts and a collection up tomorrow night. Guess we’ll see. Worst case, I’ll just get the two up that are basically ready (except they don’t have covers up yet).
So yeah, it’s been a pretty decent day, as far as writing goes. And, really, in general.
Because this evening, I learned that Netflix has Twin Peaks available to stream through my PS-3. And they’ve got They Live. How sweet is that, huh?
