First day of sweating

If you look to the sidebar at right, I’ll be updating my daily progress for 70 Days of Sweat. My goal is 1000 words per day on DG3, and I’ll be updating by the week and overall.

Today I only got 745, but I’m using a different kind of notebook for added portability and I’m only getting about 190 per page. There goes my easy math. Instead of needing four handwritten pages per day, I need like 5.2. I’ll round off and go for five, hoping I run over a bit.

This one I’m picking up in a bit of an odd place, since I was originally writing from the end toward the beginning. Odd, but that’s the way it came to me. Now I’m trying to work from the beginning toward where my backwards chapters begin. And I’m still not sure where certain parts of the book take place. I’d decided before on France, but…eh. France? Really?

But it feels wicked great to be working on a Devlin Group book again!

    :clap: Yay on the word count and yay on the Devlin Group. Although writing from back to front and then back again… wait, what? :shrug:

    Anyway, I’m sweating with Sven too. This is me cheering you on :cheer:

    I’m so happy to hear that you are working on a Devlin Group book. I’m tired of re-reading the two I have. LOL!
