Today is a “work day” so it is a good test of my commitment to the pledge…and I passed the test! After working all day, I wrote 262 words for the thesis, 735 words for the novel and 315 words for miscellaneous projects (not including lesson plans or blog posts) for a grand total of 1,312 words today! (I wrote over 1,000 words yesterday as well…mostly on the novel.)
Not too shabby, if I do say so myself.
I hope everyone else is having as productive a day as I am!
I wonder though, if I did keep track of all the words I wrote today including lesson plans, blog posts, emails, handwritten notes, and everything else, just how many words in total that would be? Has anyone ever kept track of how much they actually write in a day for purposes of general communication? I want to look into this further and perhaps share some statistics with my students…it might be interesting!
