The Final Day: Day 31

This is it! The last day of the month!

Can you make it to 50K words by the end of today?

This has been an amazing, fun adventure. I'm so glad you all joined me in writing 50,000 words this month.

Shall we do it again next year?


  1. I'm definitely interested in next year - heck I wanna do it again in August! lol I just might anyway.

    I'm just going to list my counts for the weekend here, if that's okay. I've been keeping a tally, but Blogger's been giving me fits trying to log in. Anyway, here's the numbers:

    Saturday: 1443
    Sunday: 1046
    Monday: 1596

    I'm over 53K now, but definitely won't make the 60K before midnight - critique group tonight. But I'm hoping to be wrapped up by the weekend. I still have a couple of love scenes to write - the spaces literally say LOVE SCENE HERE. lol

  2. I wanna do 50K August or September! (Prefer Sept if anyone game!)

    Not gonna make 50K, but for me the big success for me is being consistent. I made to the halfway point of 25K. Now that I've flexed those muscles, I think I can do even more with the next challenge. I'm planning to keep going in June. The daily check-in thing really worked for though!

  3. Oh and huge thanks to Shoshanna ! You rock!

  4. Thanks guys! I'm so thrilled you joined me. It really kept me motivated to write everyday, and I met my goal of writing a full 50K manuscript in one month. :)

    I don't know what the immediate future holds for me, writing-wise. I think I'm going to write a novella (20K) and self-publish it during June!

  5. I didn't fair quite as well as you all did. I finished the month at 33k. Not terrible, but also didn't hit the goal. I DID finish one project and get a good start on the next, so I'm not too concerned about it. I'd love to do another 50K marathon again!

    Congrats to those who hit 50K!!

  6. Great job everyone. I worked so hard on the novel series, I took the rest of the day off. LOL

    2737 for the day put me a tad of 61K.

    I thank you all and esp. Shoshanna for the motivation. I wouldn't have done it without all the motivation!

    Hugs an lets do it again soon!


  7. Yay! I'll definitely want to do this again soon! Maybe we'll even just use the same blog and #may50K hashtag, even if it's not the month of May. It could mean "May I write 50K", LOL
