Robert Writes a Book – Day 35

I took some time off from the book for the holiday, as well as general writer’s block that I was experiencing. That said, I just need to open it up and write even on the days that I don’t feel like writing, because I manged to have my best day based on raw output since the middle of June. I honestly don’t know if everything I wrote today will show up in the final project, or if it will remain where it is if it does, but it was nice to get something down again.

On with the stats:

Robert Writes a Book – Day 29

Missed yesterday because of work things, which is going to push down the average, but it’s alright. Progress is progress.

Probably would have been able to write more if I didn’t have to go back and change a bunch of stuff. I should have researched a little more thoroughly when I was building my timeline, and fortunately, it ended up not being that dramatic of a change in the end.

Done with the first meeting between main protagonist and the new mentor, so the next thing should be a bit closer to something actually happening. I think. Not really sure at this point per usual, so we’ll see where my fingers take me when I get back to writing on Monday.

Robert Writes a Book – Day 27

I didn’t get to writing today until later in the afternoon, so I didn’t get as much done today as I was hoping, but it was still a positive number at the end of the day.

Today was more of the first meeting between the main guy and the new mentor/father-figure character. Hope to finish this part up before the end of the month, but, as always, we’ll see where the story takes me.

Robert Writes a Book – Day 26

Two days in a row, and I’ve almost returned to writing over 1,000 words a day again!

I spent most of today’s words writing about another mentor/father figure for my main character, and he’s kind of amazing. Doesn’t have as strong a name as Roland Pabst, but my young protagonist really needs some guidance in his life from men that are older than him since his father was pretty much absent from his life after he turned 18.

It’s still background stuff, but I am getting closer and closer to something actually happening methinks. I hope by the time I reach 50,000 words (the next reveal mentioned below), I hope to know what exactly my dude is actually going to be doing, but I guess we’ll see what happens.

On with the stats:

DAILY STATS:
Total words written: 22,103 (+932 from yesterday)
Daily average: 850 (up from 847) [Average on the 13 days I’ve actually written is 1,700]
Approximate days to end goal: 162+
Approximate days to next reveal: 32+
