ROW80 Update!

Oh. My. Gosh. Guys, I did it! *jumps up and down ecstatically* I managed to write 2000 words today!

But, you know what's even better?

I didn't stop at 2000. I kept going and I got to 3145. I wrote over THREE THOUSAND words today!

You know what else?

I actually enjoyed it! I didn't feel like it was a chore. I was loving my plot and my characters, and I had fun! I kept writing because I was enjoying myself so much that I didn't want to stop.

I think it's moments like these that are really important. Writing because you love to. No other reason.

Sorry for the lack of coherent post. I was actually going to post something interesting along with my ROW post but I was too darn excited.

So, here's a breakdown of my goals. You can see that I didn't have a great start to the week but Saturday and Sunday I really stepped it up.

Monday - 834
Tuesday - 198
Wednesday - 748
Thursday - 283
Friday - 0
Saturday - 1602
Sunday - 3145

Total - 6810
Catch up - 6731

My goal for the week is to write 4000 words and to catch up on the words that I'm behind on.

I hope everyone had a great week! Happy writing!


  1. Well done on your progress this week! It's always brilliant when the words just flow and writing is actually fun, instead of having to push yourself to churn them out. They help give you momentum to carry you through those times when the flow of words is about as fast as hardened concrete lol

  2. Awesome job girl! I am super proud of all those words! Its a wonderful thing when you a patch of "I cannot help but write at this moment." So glad you had a good time...

  3. That's fantastic progress! Way to go! And, even better, like you said, it was that incredible feeling where the words just come and fill you with excitement about what you're doing and that's the best writing of all. It was so good to read this post, Komal; I've been in a little of a writing funk, but being reminded of those moments is just the thing to get me to want to experience that again for myself!

    Good luck with the catch-up! You'll be there in no time!

  4. Love days when you can work that well, so Yay for you! Who needs an interesting aside when there's excitement and great progress to celebrate?

  5. Oh my gosh! That is fabulous! I can feel your excitement and it makes me want to write more today! Sorry for all the exclamation points.

  6. Thanks so much, everyone! Really, your support does wonders for my writing.

    @Amy - I think I over use exclamation marks too!

  7. That's awesome! That's a TON of words for one day. Good for you. :)

  8. amazing - it's wonderful when that happens - forget the post you were going to write your dancing feet brought a smile and a good feeling to all of us reading your good news

    all the best for coming week

  9. holy cow! that's an amazing accomplishment. i don't think i've ever gotten that many words down in a single day, so i'm in awe.
