October 31st, 2019 – 400

Sorry for a super late one today. I wanted to hit target before I wrote today because, well look at the title. 400 days of 1K and still going strong. Given I pick up by estimation about a thousand words on average every fortnight on top of 1K – a conservative estimate, and that I have a ton of writing I don’t count towards 1K on here and my journal, I’ve written somewhere in the range of 566,000 words since this project began. That is low-balling it too. I still find it crazy that I’ve managed to turn out roughly War and Peace in terms of content. Ok, so it’s not W&P level content but still.

I’m still sick as a dog, and I should be asleep right now, but it took awhile to psyche myself up to write TSS. I wanted to do that today for two reasons. First, I want to get the project done, so more TSS days equals better. Second, I managed to end the month on a positive note, with my only instance of five consecutive days of main project writing in the whole of October. This was a super tough month, and I’m proud of myself for getting through it in one piece.

So what do the next 100 days hold? Well if I manage to finish TSS before the end of the year – unlikely but possible – then I might have that as a finished project. As it stands, with the General Election to contend with I’ll settle for still being alive in 100 days. But I might have two almost typed up manuscripts by then, as on January 1st 2020 I’ll be switching to WHT. So who knows.

But on a funny note, this blog turns 1 year old on day 500. I like these weird little coincidences. Goodnight.
