    Typing 300,000 words in 60 days!

    Sounds insane doesn't it? lol

    I've started a six book series, the series I've been dying to write actually, and I want to have all six books finished before I go back home.

    Now as of the end of the month, I'll be ready, financially and emotionally, to go home, but I know moving in and getting settled will be a distraction. I want to live my life now with more intention and more focus on the day to day rather than the big picture, so I'd really love, need really, to have all six of these books done and subbed before I step across my new threshold. :D

    So I'm buckling down

    5k a day, which under normal circumstances, really isn't that much of a stretch, will do it. So I know I can do this, it's just a matter of discipline at this point and so far so good. In three days I'm just over 15k!

    I'll track my progress in this thread for anyone interested, plus give you a sneak peak into the world of Brooke and Finn. It's a magical place that I don't think you've ever seen quite this way.

    My hope of course is that readers come to love these stories and that the series won't end at six books, but that's up to you.

    The Goal:
    300,000 words in 60 days

    The Progress:


    Book One:


    Wish me luck!

    Thanks everyone!!!

    Yesterday was kinda :P I did work stuff on-line blogging answering emails, updates on the website, that kinda stuff. Then there was life stuff and eating, sheesh, and so by the time I got around to writing last night, it was late and I had the worst headache, so I only got 2500 written.

    So far today though I'm at 4k. I'm taking a break, then a pov switch and hopefully I can crank out another few thousand :D

    Today's the day...in theory, that I reach the halfway point of Book One of this series. I'm SO excited, despite being 1k behind schedule and procrastinating something fierce this morning, I still hope to hit 30k before I crash tonight!

    Here's your first peak into the world I'm creating.

    My hero is Finn Lockhart, GM of a world famous amusement Park and die hard bachelor.

    Not for the reasons most men are bachelors, for him it's more because he feels he's already done the dad thing when he raised his two younger sisters. He doesn't feel the need to do it again and he's adamant about this.

    Brooke Bentley had planned the dream vacation of a lifetime with her best friend, not expecting he'd get called away one day into the trip. (Anyone familiar with my personal life...sound familiar? lol)

    Luckily for Brooke, she meets a handsome prince who shows her the keys to his kingdom and so much more!

    That's all you get for now...stay tuned.

    Thanks!

    The last two days have killed me :P Between chasing down missing royalties and getting taxes done and other mundane life stuff, the days have completely gotten away from me. :P

    I'm at 26k, but I'm going to go do some writing now before I turn in, doubt I'll catch up, but it's the keep going that's important! :D

    Tax time is so horrible.

    I'm glad the writing is going well.

    The writing has been a little hit or miss this week, more life drama, but it should be over come Tuesday. I HOPE. Court is the last hurdle for the foreseeable future, but on the upside, I've written about another five thousand words on my quest for 300,000 words in 60 days, despite all the craziness, and that's the real goal anyway, just to keep going. I'll update the counter next time I open the wip for anyone interested ...oh! and it looks like I've bought a home!

    I'll know for sure tomorrow.

    I'm in New York City today, on Broadway right near Time's Square. I've decided the city is much more enjoyable on a Sunday than a weekday. lol
