Just a quick update for the first one of hopefully many for this year.
Word Count: 948 words
Been struggling to write so what I have ended up writing is something that is absolutely awful featuring some old characters. To be fair, it has got me writing at least. It’s probably going to be hit and miss and just random stuff featuring the same characters, hopefully but I’m writing. It is threatening to turn somewhat into fluffy romance which probably isn’t a bad thing since Valentines Day is next month.
I’ve also managed to join Write All Year on the new website. No forums or anything but you can set your own writing target and it does offer a couple of graphs based on your word counts and information about the most active members for the current day and for the current month. Hopefully more features and maybe some forums will be added to the website soon because it does seem like a good way to keep writing. If you are competitive like I can be, the most active members stats could become almost like a daily challenge.
The word counter thing is confusing. It’s not like NaNo where you put your full word count in and it figures out how many words you have written that day. Rather you have to keep track of how many words you have written per day and enter that so it can added it to your daily, weekly, monthly and yearly total. Very annoying and very confusing at first but hopefully it will become easier to use after a while.
How is your writing going? Have you started something new or working on something from last year? Does anyone else use the Write All Year website? Do you find it helpful? Don’t be afraid to comment below.
