The End of the Book is in Sight

According to my Pacemaker.press app, I have less than 10K words left to write on this book. That doesn’t of course mean that it’ll end in less than 10K words, but it’ll end pretty close to this weekend’s target word count.

I’ve been writing well this week, so far. The words have been flowing and there’s so much love. No among the characters. No one may be getting blown up here in the next couple thousand words or so, but I’m loving it. I’m in love with the writing and believe me, that helps a lot. We writers don’t always love what we’re writing when we’re in the trenches fighting for every single letter of every single word, but we wouldn’t trade it for anything else, either.

So, who wants to join in on the quest for 10,000 words this weekend…from today (Thursday) through Sunday (at midnight)? At minimum, it’s 2500 words a day. At max, you wait until Sunday and writing all 10,000 words. Some people do that and they’re awesome. Me? Not so much.

Even if you don’t need 10,000 words or even if you can’t pound out but 1000 a day, that’s cool. The point is to have some fun and support each other through the process.

The hashtag is #10kweekendsforwriters
