Day 5: 500 words
Day 6: 1847
Total words I've achieved so far is 8,501. So while I'm behind, the fact is I am way ahead because I'm moving forward with my book and gaining clarity around structure and narrative as I go.
There are still 25 days and as long as I keep dipping my toe in, so to speak, and do some words every day, I will be a very, very happy woman.
