Writing Updates: May 2008

Saturday, June 7th, 2008

June is here, so it’s time to post my monthly writing update1. My concerted effort to try to hit at least 550 words a day in May paid off, and I often found myself blowing past 1000 words some days when things really got going. I was able to build good momentum that carried me from day-to-day2.

I managed at least 13,697 words this month. I’m not sure what the exact number is because I’ve become accustomed to pulling my totals from my twitter archive and I found that a few tweets I thought had gone out either didn’t or were lost3. Even without my full number of words I did better this month than last, and that’s what matters. Of course, since I finished the big project, the question now is “What’s next?”


  1. Yes, June has been here for some time, but it was June 1 when I started this post. That tidbit serves as a preview for how June is going so far. []
  2. I also made a conscious effort to follow my own advice. []
  3. Just to be clear, I don’t blame twitter for my own carelessness. []
