Clarion West Write-A-Thon 2017 Week 6

Posted on July 26th, 2017 by Shannon Fay | No Comments

The last week of the 2017 Write-a-Thon! The last blog post about it! Woot! I want to thank my friends who have sponsored me and given money to Clarion West. It really means a lot to me. Thank you.

My goal for the Write-a-Thon was simple: write a set number of words every day. At first the word count goal was 1,000, but when that was too much I shifted the goalposts to 750. Even with that lowered amount there’s still a whole week worth of days where I wrote absolutely nothing (some days I had a good excuse, like when I did a full day of first aid training and came home to a surprise party. Other days not so much). So with this last week of the Write-a-Thon, I’ve temporarily doubled my daily goal to 1,500 words in order to catch up. I’ve been hitting it so far and I really feel like my novel is coming along.

The point of all this boring word count stuff is this: don’t get discouraged if you fail some days, if you fall behind, if you aren’t meeting your own standards. If you keep at it you will get a chance to catch back up.

The Write-a-Thon ends Friday, but in the meantime you can still sponsor me for this last leg of the journey at my write-a-thon page:
