2100 today and very close to finishing this first draft. I've got the next one outlined and an initial edit done on the last one. Once I've finished this draft though I want to do a couple of shorts before I start the next novel WIP. I've also got the query and synopsis do for the last one and good bit of trimming to do on it.

I'm finding this thread very helpful for keeping to my targets, so thanks once again for starting it.

501 and man it was tough. I have the scene, just seem to sit down to write it and freeze up. Not sure how much of it I will keep, but when I edit it at the end, a full sheet of words is easier to edit then just sitting here waiting for the perfect words to come.

I want to try for 1000 words a day, but I need to 'warm-up' to that level of work.

552. Again it was pulling teeth. I started on a scene in 1 story, but couldnt get it flowing-only 35 words. Switched to another, that I thought I was feeling, but nothing not a word. Opened a third file and the next scene came out 517 words. So pretty happy overall.

500 exactly. I thought for sure deleting the last paragraph meant I was going to be short, but nope, 500 exactly. I like that, not as much as say 900 or a 1000 but not 501 or 517 but 500. Now I can get that sleep I have been craving.

It's been a busy week this week so I've not had much time to write, but I managed to do about 800 words last night. So I was pretty miffed when I managed to delete it before I backed it up.
