I woke up dark and early (4 AM) for no real reason, so I ended up getting my first half an hour over with before 8 AM. I didn’t set a timer, just watched the clock. Once I got going, I was amazed at how quickly the half hour passed. I wrote about 450 words during that half hour, making my total word count for my novel 4,406. I had intended to write later on in the day to reach a total word count of 5k, but I also had to dye my hair and prep for a photo shoot, so it just didn’t happen. Although, I did get a few other words down later, but not a whole session like I did in the morning.

Today, I hope to make that 5k word count goal, but I’ll be writing in the evening because of my photo shoot this morning.
