I completely forgot to post here that I was attempting Fast Draft this week. If you’re not familiar with Fast Draft, the basic principle is cutting out the distractions and writing a novel in two weeks. It’s a concept from a course by Candace Havens that I highly recommend to help you finish your book. Of course, I’m an overachiever and decided to do a one week Fast Draft. I don’t recommend this, BTW. I’m gonna be tired af.
Anyway, I took Sunday and prepped myself for the week. Took care of all the errands I had to do, and made some food for the week I could keep in the fridge or freezer, and started writing on Monday. My first day of fast draft went really well. I ended up with 9,645 words, for a total word count of 14,671 words. Yeah, this book had a little bit of wordage on it when I started, but you know what, that’s okay. My whole point of this exercise is to finish the book. It didn’t really matter to me that I’d already had a little bit of a start on it.
After I hit my word count, I rewarded myself by watching DC’s Legends of Tomorrow on Netflix.
Because, yes, I work well in a reward-based system.
I’m going to post my progress through the week, probably morning posts for the day before like this one, and hopefully, maybe y’all can get something out of my rambling, and I get a finished draft out of this project.
See you guys tomorrow for the Day Two update. I’m gonna go get All The Words.
TOTAL FAST DRAFT WORDCOUNT:14,671 words
