Progress on The Darkest Kiss.

It’s the first day of the challenge, so I thought I’d post where I am and where I’m going. I’m working on The Darkest Kiss, deadline at the end of September. I usually chart my progress by word count, rather than page count, so I’m figuring out my daily writing commitment this way.

One page = 320 words (on average with my font and page set up)

The Sweaty 70 requires between 4 and 6 pages a day, which means between 1,280 and 1,920 words a day, but my word count goal is actually 3,000 words a day and I’m sticking with that one. 🙂

Today I’ve written 700 words so far. Only 2,300 more to go!

I might occasionally post snippets or quotes from the ms. Here is today’s: “Blood hunger stirred within him, restless for a drink that had nothing to do with the imported bourbon in the glass he held.”
