Not only did I start late, but then I got sick. Bleah.
But that's not the biggest conundrum. My biggest conundrum right now is: from where do I start my word count? I'm starting in the middle of a book, so I figured pick a starting word count and build from there.
I did not count on the delete key figuring so prominently in my early efforts.
I'd originally posted a starting count of 26,461. Then I started writing, deleted 1,457 words and finished my day up only 413 words from the starting word count, but actually wrote 1,870 new words that day.
Well, they were all new words, so I think I'm going with that.
'cause I can, that's why. Marianne said the count was NEW words. NEW words.
Which would make my progress so far look like this:
Onward and upward, right?
