Novel Push Initiative: Week 2 Report

Okay I’m a few days late writing this up.  I had to chase down a few last words and have been very busy.  I am sad to say we’ve lost a few more folks to revisions, plotting, and the dreaded H1N1.  Still there was butt kickage on the words this week.  Daily and weekly high goes to Julie K. who put out 2489 for her high day and a whopping 11986 for the week.  You go girl!  And for the rest of us.

Me:  I bumped my daily word count goal back to 350 words after a nasty bout with hives last week.

Merrilee is dropping out to do some serious plotting.  Which is fine.  No reason to waste time going off in the wrong direction.

And finally we have lost Amie Stuart to plotting as well.

Grand total, we produced a total of 66,782 words this week!  For the challenge so far, we’re up to 136,798 words.  That’s a lot!

  1. Hey guys, I just wanted to pop in and congratulate all of you on another solid week 😀

    As Kait mentioned, I’m bowing out. I’m still working on the same project, but I’ve reached a point where I’m keeping a lot of what I had originally (time-crunch hit and I still had too many chapters left). I am probably still clocking in my new words per day, but it’s almost impossible to measure, so I thought it was best to just bow out. I hope you don’t mind, but I’m going to still stop by and see how the rest of you do for the last two weeks. It’s been a lot of fun!

    LeAnn, I hope you feel better soon!

  2. Congrats to everyone who’s doing so well! Yes indeedy, I did misunderstand, so as of today I’m trying to be good, be very very good. 360 words tonight! (still doing longhand, so that’s a guess; I started a new notebook and seem to do about 12 words per line, with 30-32 lines per page)

  3. Wow, we’re doing so well. Keep up the good work guys! This is the push I needed today to get my pen to paper (or fingers to the keyboard!).

    LeaAnn I hope you feel better soon and are able to join in again soon!
