Alright, peeps. It’s that time. And by “that time” I specifically mean 5:00 pm CST, the end of the first ever Writer’s Duel.
I began yesterday with a word count of 21,723.
I ended today with a word count of 28,403.
For a grand total of 6,680 words!
I’m pretty proud of that, actually, considering the distractions I had to deal with this weekend. I mean, aside from the obvious distraction of firecrackers going off in the neighborhood and the army base behind our house firing something that sounded like canons, there was also a game of Monopoly during which my husband thought he was rubbing my foot under the table but was actually rubbing his friend’s (his excuse was that it felt just like my foot, so apparently my feet are large and a little hairy [you can imagine how many brownie points this did NOT earn him]).
And then we came to my in-laws house, and they just got the most adorable kitten in the entire world who loves to snuggle and also thinks my necklace is the greatest toy EVER.
But I pushed through and wrote 6,680 words!
Now for the part that makes me nervous: Did anyone beat me? Am I going to have to post an embarrassing picture of myself from junior high, or have I escaped humiliation for the time being?
Leave your word count in the comments! I can’t wait to see how everyone did!
