100 Day Challenge - Complete!

Update: The 100 days are over! Yesterday was day 100. You can see my results below. I wrote a total of 40,677 words over the 100 days (4x the minimum 100 words daily would total). Almost 3/4 of that was toward my novel. I took the challenge in order to write more regularly on my WIP, and to that it was a success. I'm very happy with my accomplishment. I'm still going to try writing every day, but won't punish myself if I miss one occasionally. Did you take the challenge? How did you do?

Here I'll keep a running total of my writing count. The goal/challenge is 100 words every day for 100 days. First day was June 13. I'll update this every couple of days. (In case it's not obvious, first number is challenge day, second is number of words written that day.)

talk about writing way above your goal! With a goal of 100 words you are blowing it out of the water! KUDOS!

It's been way too long since I checked blogs! Here I am again to say I'm still on track! Well, minus a few days . . . I have to admit I wrote a bunch extra to "make up" those days. Meh. Still, it's so exciting to see the progress I'm making!
