Novel Recommit Challenge Final Count

Gator  McBumpypants, Herman and Dee Dee look out over the waterAs Robert Evenhouse mentioned in a post during the challenge, life will get in the way of your word count goals and that happened to me yesterday, so as you may have noticed, I didn’t get a blog post up (or get my words written) after critique group. So, Thursday’s total word count was 1,194 words. My grand total for the whole seven day challenge was 6,371. I didn’t quite make my goal, but I made great progress on my projects and I am happy with the results. Congratulations to Robert for reaching his goal of 7,000 words in 7 days!

My main take away from the challenge was that inspiration doesn’t have to strike first, ideas come and get fleshed out as you write.
