Word Count

2.984 words yesterday. I hope today is similar or at least 2.000. Let's hope I can keep this output up for five days each week... Ho Hum Ho Hum, it's off to glue my bum!!! That is to my seat... :)

It took me two hours to do 2.000 words....I think I had a few interruptions that I should have ignored like phone, and door bell. 

I'm wondering how long it takes writers to write 1.000 words. Your feedback would be appreciated. Thanks. I'm going now. :) lol Have a nice day.

Ignoring the phone is the worst thing, Suzanne. I can hide in the house, log off the internet, but I can't quite turn off my phone...

I do about 1000 per hour as well on a good day. On a bad day? Hubbie asked last night if I included words on FB in my daily word count... sigh...

Love your hubbies question. lol.. I never thought about all those extra words each day. Now let me see. Ummm... lol...
Thanks for stopping by. :)

I forgot to say, that is when I'm on a good run as well.
When they aren't flowing as smoothly it can be much less. :)

I think I used to be able to do about a 1000 words an hour but it's slowed a lot lately for some reason :(
Well done on your awesome word counts.

At the moment it feels like it takes 10 years for me to write 1000 words. Argh! But I used to be able to knock them out in half an hour to an hour during sprints.

Suz, I want to hear you sing 'Ho Hum, Ho Hum, it's off to glue my bum' at our next meeting. LOL>

Thanks Rach, I think I average out. I'm normal. lol.. But I also get those periods where blood sweat and tears pour onto the keypad before any words.
Thanks for stopping by and commenting. :)

Hi Di,
Sprints are good. I love a two hour sprint or more... but usually two hours then a break then I'm into it again.

:) :) Don't you think I can sing? lol :) Hopefully I'll get to our next meeting and I'll give you a demo. lol...
