Although I still technically have until tomorrow to write a complete book in one week, I have to admit defeat. While I was able to knock out a good chunk of it, coming in at just over twenty-one thousand words, I also hit a massive plot hole, which took a little extra research and time to sort out.
Ultimately, that resulted in an entire day of no writing as well as the loss of about three thousand words. Alone, either one of these might have been recoverable, but compounded together it was admittedly disheartening to realize there was too much I’d have to recover.
That being said, although I didn’t successfully complete a book in a week challenge this time around, I’m definitely earmarking opportunities to try it again. It’s been a while since I’ve found a challenge that pushes my limits the way this one does.
In case you’re curious, I’m calling it quits with a total of eleven hours, thirty-one minutes of writing time to reach a grand total of twenty-one thousand, four-hundred and ninety-one words.
I’m looking forward to finding more challenges as well. If you know of any, leave me a comment below!
