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.

I’ll Get The Words In… One Day

…Or maybe in four days. Or three days. Or… Who knows. Actually, I NEED to know. I don’t, really. I just need to do it. Buckle down and do it. Write. All. The. Words.

I keep hoping someone will join me on this insane journey of 10,000 words in a weekend. It’s not insane for everyone. Some do 10,000 words in a day, most days of the week. It is insane for me, though. Unless I leave the house. Alone. Or… Well, yeah. Unless I leave the house alone.

I am beginning to come to the conclusion that I need an office outside my house. Affording one is a different matter, but something that seems to become more and more clear the longer there are other people (spouse, kids, animals, etc…) living here or working here.

But, 10,000 words in a weekend is a goal. It’s a challenge, to be sure, but a goal of mine, too. To reach it and eventually surpass it. This year has been a year like that for me. Making goals, taking small steps, learning. However, that’s a post for another day.

The way this works… 10,000 words between today (Thursday) and Sunday. Leave a comment below if you’re going to join in or catch me on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc… to say Yes, I’m in!

Keep track of your word count and let me and anyone else who’s participating know how you did!
