Writing Challenge day 8

It’s been one of those fun-filled days here in Western New York.  Currently the temperature can be counted on one hand, and have fingers left over.  When you add in the wind, it’s not fit for anyone, man or beast, to stay out too long.  The upside of this is that schools were closed today, so we were able to run errands that had been originally scheduled for this evening during the afternoon.  I liked it since it freed up the evening for some writing.

The girls wanted to do some shopping at one of the local malls.  I decided to wait in the food court while they did their browsing.  I was able to get about 500 words done using my iPad and keyboard while they hit 2 stores. Every time I can utilize my time in an efficient manner like that, I get excited because I know that I’m going to have a good writing day!

So far, I’d say that it has been an excellent day.  After getting back from our errands and got dinner, I spent a little time going over some business ideas with my spouse.  Once we had an idea of where we wanted things to go, and in which order, I was free to come down to my dungeon and get working.

I’m taking a break after about an hour and a half to write this.  I wanted to make sure that I got my word count for the day up before midnight.  I am planning on continuing on tonight for a while longer, so I’ll see what the final tally is when I call it a night finally.

But as of 11:58, I’ve got 16,534 words on Dealer’s Choice done.  That’s about 4,000 words today so far.  I’ll post an update below with my final numbers.

 

*****UPDATE******

I’m calling it a night.  Even though it’s technically early morning on the 9th, I’m putting these words in on the 8th count.  Figured since I started the session on the 8th, that’s where it goes.  All in all, it was a productive day for writing.  Made up for yesterday’s total lack there of.  Ended the night with a total of 5624 words.  Not too shabby.

At this rate, I estimate that I should finish Dealer’s Choice around the 90,000 word mark on or about February 1.  If things work in my favor, and the story takes off like they normally do, there’s a very good chance that I can get this one totally done by the end of January.  Exciting times.
