So, you might be wondering how I’m doing on the Page-A-Day Challenge?
It’s been two weeks since it started, so we’re on day fourteen and I’ve added 23 pages to my manuscript. True, they’re double-spaced pages but still. I started with 179 pages with 48,358 words.
- 202 Pages
- 55,372 Words
That’s an increase of 23 pages over 14 days, so I’m definitely meeting the quantity part of the challenge.
Of course, part of Weronika’s challenge was to write quality pages, and that I can’t really speak to. I admit that I’m using this challenge more as incentive to get the draft of this old, patient manuscript done than in trying to get the pages really, really good. After all, isn’t editing easier than dragging the original words out of my head and forcing them onto paper in the first place?
