Day Seven

This is it, the last day. Time to go for that push. We hope this BIAW has been helpful. Putting our writing at the forefront of our day is not always easy, but it can be rewarding.

We will be doing this again next month. I find that if I participate in a BIAW, the effects spill over into the next week and beyond. Hopefully it will do the same for you.

When you post your final totals, mention how you found this BIAW helpful or if you found it hindered you.

Thanks for participating! Happy Writing.

So much for the last day push! I ended up having zero time to write today between softball and making wedding CDs with my sister. Oh well, still really pleased with the overall word count of 12,750. That was a great exercise. Thanks for hosting it!

I was able to write 2400 words. Not much compared to what others did, but it's a great start. I am off work this week and can stay home and write write write!

This was a great jump start on my novel. I'll post back in a week and let you know where I am then.

Thanks Mel and Rene for hosting!

I only managed 600 words on the last day, but I started Chapter 6!

Overall BIAW has helped me to finish Chapter 4 (which I'd been stuck on since I stopped writing due to a house move). BIAW then inspired me to start and finish Chapter 5.

This hasn't been the greatest week for me healthwise, and my goal had been merely to finish Chapter 4. So, you can imagine how happy I am to have started Chapter 6!!

I forgot to mention whether it helped or hindered and, of course, it definitely helped. I find the BIAWs are a great way to start something new because it gives you a chance to just blurt out your ideas, etc and get them down without editing yourself to death.

1,00 words. sheesh.
Not exactly a book but this inspired me and I did find a new approach to the WIP.
(I've been writing this one out-of-order and it's been hard to see the big picture but this week did put it all in perspective!)
Thank you!
I'm off to write!

That was 1,000 words! It's still not much but a little better when I get all the zeros up there! ;)
Thanks again for the inspiration!

I wrote about 2000 words so I think that put me at about 10,000 words total, which is great!

Thanks so much for "hosting" the BIAW! It really helped me and I'll definitely participate again if you have one...

Thanks for hosting this BIAW. It really helped me get back into the swing of things with regards to my writing.

In total, I wrote just over 4500 words.

It was a help. I wrote the first draft of a full-length play. Thanks for inviting me.
