Now let’s pass it.
#85K Challenge. 85,000 words in 90 Days. On January 1st 2016 Murandy and I started writing our next novel, #Uncharted. Using the challenge as motivation to write faster, better, and as often as possible we started strong with nearly half the challenge done at the end if the first month. The second month we kept a good pace, but coming up on the end of February I went in for surgery and spent the next few weeks recovering.
Whether it was the two weeks off course or the fact that we didn’t feel the pressure anymore after having gotten so far ahead of ourselves, we certainly slowed down in month three, though we kept up with writing a few thousand words every couple of days and still managed to complete the challenge with two weeks left until the deadline.
But we’re not satisfied with that anymore. Now that we’ve reached Chapter 30 of a possible 35, we want to finish the first draft as soon as we can manage it. Optimally by the end of March, the original last day of the challenge.
Think we can do it?
