Word Count Wednesday: 22nd October 2014

Welcome back!

This week, I introduced my new Sunday Scribblings segment, and promised a new Wednesday segment too!

So what am I posting on Wednesdays?

Word Count Wednesday is a little writing exercise for myself.

With all the work I do for Her Campus as well as running my wrestling blog, I write a lot more than I give myself credit for.

And the point of Word Count Wednesday is to tally up all the words I create in a single week and examine it.

So how many words did I write between Wednesday 15th October and today?

6,288 words, or about 898 words per day.

If we work on the theory that 750 words per day is about the right average, that puts me in a good place.

And what I produced was a great mix of blog posts, Her Campus opinion pieces, fiction and even fanfiction.

Actually, I wrote more fanfiction than I did anything else. Over 2,000 words of it. And I find that fascinating.

Now I’m a big advocate of fanfiction. But that’s not why I wrote that most of all.

No, I think it’s more that the story I picked is one I’m passionate about finishing and enjoy putting it together.

It’s an experimental piece and I’m having fun playing with it.

So what I need to do is find a way to transfer that passion to my original creative pieces and finish them too.

Well. Once the fic is done. It won’t write itself!
