My July Word Count Challenge

I began writing about five years ago. Sure I had written stuff prior but I never ever completed anything for one reason or another. That is until Fat Trapped came around. That story just would not leave me alone until I told the story of the Blankenships. So for a shameless plug, that story is available HERE & in paperback HERE. Anyway since then I have written a couple of short stories which are available as well.

Last summer I started a Christmas story that surrounded the Blankenships and serves as a prequel to Fat Trapped. My plan was to get it out last year for Christmas and that never happened. In fact I am still writing it as we speak but over the past few weeks I have made significant progress. My word count goal for this story was 10,000 words and I am now over 15,000 and still writing. I expect some of the story will get cut in the editing process as it usually does.

I would like to get two stories out on Amazon Kindle by the end of the year and in order to do that, I have to write. So I am challenging myself to write everyday in the month of July. Whether its 100 words or 1,000 words thats what I want to do. Write. This does not include blog posts, the word count challenge is for my stories only. It may not seem like a tough challenge to most people but with my work schedule its very easy for me to make excuses. I am going to keep a rough track of how many words I write and will reveal at the end of the month what my final count is.

I am excited about the progress that will be made this month and hopefully I can stick to my word as I did when I sat down to write Fat Trapped.

As always, thanks for the support!
