Word Count Marathon Day 4!

4000 words for me today and I can’t believe this episode isn’t done. I refuse to break it into two again. This has to be the last one. I need to rewrite one section and then add the last segment for the happily ever after. It’s going to come in at 16,000 words making it the longest episode yet.


I just hope it’s good. I know it’s better than what I wrote the first time through; I just don’t know if it’s the awesome ending needed to bring the story home. When it’s done, it looks like the whole serial will be about 120,000 words, making it the longest story I’ve written.

How did you guys do today? I hope it was a good one!

  1. I wrote a few pages of my Heaven novel, and then just felt too drained and tired to write anymore. Weds. really tired me out and the next day I just feel fatigued, so I decided not to waste writing time and did some research for my last edition of my blog on Spring Cleaning the Writing Life. Day 4 is my day to continue the rewrite and edit of a story I wrote pretty long ago and wanted to make it more personal by changing the point of view. Hope to finish this one pretty soon.

  2. I’m a little late to the marathon, but I have been down with the flu so not such writing this week. But today I am feeling good enough to be back in the chair. I’m about 75% done with my edits and pushing for the finale.

  3. Well, I ended up cutting more than I added so I’m in the hole for the day, but I corrected several points for my editor and revised a fight scene.
