Today is a post of two, interconnected, halves: it is the first post of the month, so it is time for an update on the Million Word Challenge; and I just published another book, which you can get free, and put another one on pre-order. I know most of you are here for the numbers … Continue reading Beyond the Frontiers of the Million Word Challenge
Half of the Million Words Challenge is over, and I am still behind. June was not as productive a month for writing so I have not really caught up; but more importantly, I have not dropped any further behind. Which might not be true of July. My target for June was to exceed 63,150 words. … Continue reading Million Words Challenge – June
The fifth month of my Million Word Challenge is over, and - despite the issues I anticipated - May has proved to be the most productive month so far.

With my revised daily targets and a shorter month, I was aiming for at least 49,000 words in February. Despite February being shorter than January, I … Continue reading Million Words Challenge – February and More Battling
I have thought recently that word-counts - while very satisfying to meet - can cause more issues than benefits. With Camp NaNoWriMo half way through I have encountered several people who are struggling to keep up with a self-imposed word count. They have written more than casually for a while, possibly even daily, and have … Continue reading Is the Change as Good as the Rest?
In a change from my usual posts about something that interested me or that might help someone, I have decided to ask my audience for help. As some of you might already know up until now I have used a cheap notebook that I fitted in my trouser pocket to capture the stray interesting ideas … Continue reading Help Finding a Good Roughwork Holder
