Pulp Speed Writing Day 23

So Day 23 doesn’t look very impressive, but I started editing. I chopped 31 word doc pages from the entire book, and then deleted almost another 1,000 words from Chapter 1. I ended up adding another 121 words to Chapter 1, and ended with 2,218 words left in the first chapter.

So I’m thinking about writing a serial in Wattpad, and maybe release a chapter every couple of days. I’d have to risk maybe 30 minutes a day… I don’t know… is it worth it? Maybe I’ll do a pen name romance to progress that career. I dunno.

So I’ve got a to-do list for today…

  • Edit Work-in-Process
  • Finish Paperback of Spilling Blood Season 3
  • Outline Next Book
  • Outline Romance Serial for Wattpad (optional)

I still only know that I have two days open next week, one of which will be spent at the Twin Falls County Fair. I’ll still have the morning, however, so if my ducks are in a row, I’ll be okay. I’m going to plan on writing a 20k-25k book, at this point. Honestly, I’ll know better tomorrow.

I’ve got a list of ideas I need to read through to see which concept catches my attention. And it’s gotta be something I don’t want to make full length.

Assumptions for Pulp Speed Book –

  • Each chapter to average 1,500 words targeting a 20k book. It will likely go longer, based upon my past writing history, thus the 25k upper end.
  • Probably 13 chapters. I have 7 days to write it, so that’s two chapters a day, 3,000-word daily target.
  • I have two open days for maximum output, which needs to make up for the bad days. My writing suggests 4,000 words is realistic, so I’ll push to pass 5,000.
  • Since at the moment I’m averaging under 12,000 a week, there’s a definite challenge to this goal.
  • Michael Moorcock used to write 60,000 in 3 days. Just throwing that in there.

So maybe tomorrow will be the day I’ll announce what I’m writing.
