Today wasn’t the best as far as writing goes. However, the food was awesome I . We decided to say screw it to traditional turkey and made ribs instead. They were fall-off-the-bone tender.
Early this morning I knocked out 256 words in about 10-15 minutes, but I can’t be sure because I didn’t log it. Then I wrote a blog post about my first novel being finished. Doing the final past of editing is one of a few reasons I didn’t hit my daily goal.
From 16:08 to 16:17 I wrote 402 words. I’ll note here that I’m using Dragon for the novel. I decided the only way for me to make a fair assessment of the software and if dictation would work for me is if I do an entire project with it. So far, I’m not sure it’s increasing my average word count for the novel. (I’m typing this out.) I know that for blog posts and forum posts, Dragon works wonders.
From 16:58 to 17:18 I wrote 474 words. If you average those two sprints together I’m averaging, 1,812 words. This is about 300 words an hour better than what I consider a good hour. 2,100 is my best recorded hour to date. However, I also have to factor in that I only wrote for 10-20 minutes a time, instead of my usual 45-50 minutes. I’ll chalk this up to it being Thanks Giving, but if it continues tomorrow I’ll need to seriously evaluate why.
