This is the first weekly update for my progress in our 15k in May challenge, of which you can find out more in my previous post.
The Sun has arrived, however briefly, in the UK and with it comes the end of the first week of the challenge. It has been an interesting 7 days, some of which have been very busy with working away, family visits and the all-important barbeques and beers.
Despite breaking the promise I made to myself that I would write something on my WIP every single day, I did unfortunately post one zero word count day. I didn’t beat myself up too badly for this, as I did manage to exceed my goal of 500 on all of the other days:
Day 1 – 1292
Day 2 – 792
Day 3 – 0 (GROAN)
Day 4 – 1045
Day 5 – 852
Day 6 – 875
Day 7 – 599
TOTAL FOR WEEK 1: 5,455 words
So at the moment my WIP stands at 67,373 words on my first draft.
For my next update I will try to give more of an insight in to how the actual writing is progressing, but for now I want to get back to the keyboard as blog posts, flash fiction and anything else I write doesn’t count towards my overall goal for the month!
Please feel free to join in the challenge, or see our progress on twitter by following #15kinmay. I hope you are all enjoying your writing journeys and I look forward to hearing from you all soon.
