Book Book Book

Monday Wordcount

Meh, but at least I'm a sixth of the way toward my goal for this week.

502 words.

I did some math today (never an easy prospect, but my friend Mr. Calculator helped me along) and worked out that if I write at least 500 words a day, six days a week, for nine months, I can write a new book within a year and still have three months left to spend on revisions.

Of course, now that I've figured that much out, the danger is that I'll stop when I've written 500 words even though I could have gone farther... but I think that once I'm really back in gear again, that won't be so likely. Ideally, I'd like to do at least 750 words a day to keep up with the novel_in_90 crowd... but we'll see.
