12 Lines

Write a post in just 12 lines --

I've been guided by numbers since October 1st.

October was 31 days of writing and I wrote 34 posts.

November 1st started NaNoWriMo -- write 50,000 words in 30 days.

I've got 5031 words written so far.

Right now I need to write 1799 words a day to finish on time.

I've been timing myself and can usually write 300 to 500 words in 15 minutes if all goes well.

I'm not used to thinking in terms of numbers with my writing. 

I write.

I don't count.

Counting is my husband's job (he's an actuary).

But for right now, I'm counting as I write.

And hoping the words I write will count somehow.

  1. Wow, what a daunting challenge. If any of your writing is as great as your post here, I'm sure it will be a best seller! Keep on truckin'!

  2. You are very brave to take on so many words!!! I don't usually count either; and even during the 31 days of October, I tried to keep it from getting too long; then I was asked to do a guest post - 500 - 800 words! And that sounded like SO MANY WORDS...but it really isn't, is it?! Keep writing and I'll keep following!!!

  3. Many wishes for the inspiration that you need to finish this mountain of a task!

  4. What a big project! Blessings as you set out to achieve your goals!

  5. Great post. Great encouragement! Good luck on hitting your goal. That's a lot of writing after a month of posting everyday. :)

  6. Best wishes on NaNoWriMo! You're very brave for attempting it right after the 31 Days challenge!

  7. Good luck with NaNoWriMo...and don't let the numbers get in the way of the writing!

  8. I have no idea what I would be capable of writing in a month's time, but I have a feeling it wouldn't be anywhere CLOSE to what you're cranking out. Keep it up!!
