Write 53k: The End

Back in May, I accepted a challenge: Write between 250 and 500 words every day until September 2nd. In the end, it was possible to write 53k—a novel.

So I did it. At the time I accepted, I didn’t know I’d be employed in a month so I thought it would be easy to reach my goal daily. It wasn’t, even before I began work. And I had to learn some things. Like if I knew I had something to do on a certain day (party, errands, etc), I made sure to do most of my writing early. Like, 2 AM-get-to-at-least-250-words-before-going-to-bed-early. But there were days I failed, but I usually didn’t mind. It meant I had been doing something else and hey, it was the summer. It’s a time to have fun, right?

Anyway, I’m sure you’re wondering how I did. So here we go:

The last week of “Write 53k” I wrote 2,693 words.

Overall, I wrote 29,791 words.

I’m proud of myself and all I’ve accomplished this summer. I’m still doing at least weekly check ins on Book Country until probably NaNoWriMo.

And then it starts all over again!

  1. Sounds like good practice, or a good way to get yourself writing at the least.
