    Well, I'm writing the next Nemesis and NSW chapters in tandem, and I've passed three thousand words today already, so ... yeah.

    I think I'll stay out of this one for the moment.

    2300? That's an easy enough goal. Consider me signed.

    Oh, and I've succeeded retroactively with a total of about 3k. See you tomorrow. :p

    1950 for the start of the day. So I'm pledging that 3800, just to be the first that reaches it. :p

    ... Also... I suspect my posting here is just to stroke my ego...

    Alright, I updated the sheet for today. Good luck and good writing!

    100% fine. You're encouraged to brag about hitting your pledge for the day.

    Just being here helps. The whole idea is to encourage people to start writing a little every day, and from there to stretch their limits. The more people that are seen succeeding at their challenges, the better. No one wants to be the one guy who failed, right?

    So I have 2028 words in my text box, although a fair amount of it will be gone. 949 words of dialog that will stay in the scene so I suppose it's more accurate.

    We count only readable stuff for the wordcount, right?

    Still, challenge complete!

    I'm working steadily today, so I'll go with a pledge of 800.

    Go ahead and move that pledge up to 1200, I'm on a roll here.

    Pledge failed.

    I don't even have a good excuse as to why I didn't get around to it, other than I was tired today.

    :(

    Right, let's continue plugging.
