It’s been a long year, but I’m glad that I’ve found this bit of success this year.
I had long set a goal for me to write 200,000 words this year. As of 2:30 PM Central Time today, I am at 200,063, with more than a month to spare.
My current full record for a year that I have been keeping records of is 208,919 back in 2020. This is certainly reachable before the year is out.
I had hoped to meet my daily quota of 500 words a day or 30 minutes of revisions and/or planning at least 70 percent of the time this year. I’m not sure exactly when I will be statistically secure on that goal, but I expect that it will happen soon.
Some of the things that I have experienced this year have given me a lot to think about. I’ll have to consider what my writing goals will look like next year.
Upward and onward, then.

Amazing! 200,000 words is no small feat. Add a tiny chunk more and that’s three novels right there. What an inspiration and I hope you keep up with your writing goals in your literary journey!
