That’s how many words I’ll be starting with this morning at 8:00 CST.
Now, I know it’s a holiday weekend. And I know lots of us will be busy at some point during the duel. But, you know what? That’s a writer’s life, isn’t it? You’re ALWAYS trying to find the time to write with everything else you have to do.
I mean, when I go back to work in August, I probably won’t be cranking out 5,000 words a day. And then I’ll have a baby sometime in late November / early December, and I REALLY won’t be cranking out 5,000 words a day.
So, let’s do as much as we can this weekend, in spite of the family plans and the fireworks and the barbecue. (Mmm, I can almost smell it…) If everyone likes this, I might do another one next month. And we’ll throw some editing duels in there, too.
So – what’s your starting word count today?
