It’s the 1st August and the finish line is not crossed, but in sight! I managed to write nearly 35,000 words – woo-hoo, go me! I have about 8,000 to go (I think) which will take me to 52,000 total and a finished first draft!
Thank you so much to everyone who left a you can do it comment – it was lovely having so many lovely cheerleaders.
The internet break was interesting. I was more focused on writing. I barely missed Twitter and Facebook at all, but I REALLY missed blogging. I do love my little blog, and getting comments and visiting all my regular reads and adding to my TBR list.
I didn’t miss TV too much, but I missed reading. I was reading non-fiction, I can’t not read, but I missed my novels so much. I did actually crack three days ago when I won a copy of The Sky Always Hears Me and the Hills Don’t Mind. I had a quick peak at the first page and then had to keep reading, it’s such a great book.
Anyway once the 8,000 words are done, my rewards (aside from the pure satisfaction of finishing) are
A holiday in France! Where I shall be eating seafood (everyday single day!), building sandcastles, watching films and reading many, many books, but these are two I can’t wait to dive in to.
35k and a trip to France planned? I don't think anyone can accuse you of being unproductive!
Glad to hear you writing is going well. I knew you could do it!
And France! Jealous. Can I come too 😉
Wow that's incredible! Maybe if I write 35K I will go to France?
Diana – well husband did France and nothing much else has been done except the 35k 🙂 but still quite productive!
Nic – thanks. haha if you bring some Aussie must reads 😉
Lana – thanks 🙂 Yes there is nothing like a holiday to spur you on!
