Day 29 & 30

Yesterday, I wrote 536 words. Today, 629. And that's that. I win. 500 words a day challenge for one whole month is over, and I win. Sure, I had to fudge it a little here and there. Making up for days when I'd blown it. But I wrote at least 500 words for every day in September.

I wrote one full story, and I'm getting really close to finishing the second, which is long enough to count as a novella. I think I'm only three or four scenes from the end. If anyone would like to read them, let me know, and I'll email them to you. Just ask, the email address to ask me at is editor at dunesteef dot com.

I'm going to keep on with this. But I have a new challenge planned for October. I'll let you know about it tomorrow. For now, I've got to get to bed.


  1. Thats 30% of a NaNoWriMo month. Do that year round and you have about 4 NaNoWriMo novels a year!

  2. Wow, you set a goal and you reached it!

    I have no idea how that might feel.

  3. Congrats! Looking forward to seeing/hearing some of that.

  4. Congrats, Big!

    When people ask you, "How do you write every day?" you can direct them to this nifty chronicle. :) There's no secret formula, no magic bullet. It's just putting one foot in front of the other day after day and not giving up when you sometimes fall off the horse.
