Working On The House

Written by Kodi Wolf at 6:15 AM

After having an awesome month of writing in September, despite the stress of buying a house, I think October is where it all caught up with me. I managed to keep up with my writing every day, but it was a struggle to get the words on the page and I barely hit my monthly goal.

My total word count for October was 16,709, which averages out to 539 words per day. My lowest words per day was 125 and my highest was 4,171.

That high of over 4,000 words was actually done on October 31 in a last ditch marathon session to hit my basic goal of 15,500 words for the month (that's 500 words per day). I surpassed it by 1,000 words, but I really hated leaving it to the last minute.

I'm going to try to do better this month, but I know it's going to be difficult because I have a lot of work to do on the house. It's not anything major. Just patching holes, painting, and getting flooring installed upstairs and in the back bedroom, but it is going to take a significant amount of energy, which tends to drain my creativity.

My plan is to get my writing done first thing before I go over to the house to work, and when that fails, I'm hoping I'll be able to get some writing done while I'm taking breaks from the reno.

I really want to be moved in before Christmas. I think it's doable, but a lot depends on how well my body holds up and how long it takes to get the flooring installed.

Here's hoping I can pull it off. :)
