Three weeks ago, I accepted a challenge to finish my book by September 2, and if I miss my deadline, I have to give $1,000 to the presidential candidate I despise. I’m three weeks into the challenge, and I’ve finished nine chapters so far for a total of 42,000 words.
It wasn’t hard to finish nine chapters, since I started the challenge with a little less than 30,000 words already written. However, since then I’ve written about 12,000 words, or about 600 per day.
Let’s go a little deeper to see what is working and what isn’t.
