Done with the BIAW! I didn't reach anywhere near my goal. Only wrote 17,600 words. I'm still happy with the amount. That's probably about a fourth of my rough draft, since my rough drafts tend to be 70,000 words (at least my last one was). Of course, this is because I put the meat in when I revise.

Learned a few more things. I will never do a BIAW again. If I do, my word count will be lower. And, well, a BIAM seems to be a bit more realistic with the way I write. I was also happy that I wrote something new 6 out of the 7 days in the week. I don't think I've had that long of a writing stretch in quite a while. So, hopefully I can keep the momentum going and force myself to write another 1000 words a day, of something new that is. That so doesn't include revising. I think I'll continue to work on this novel, it's been fun. :) Although, I'm scared as I get further into it, I'm going to gain another POV character, and that means I'll have to go back and add scenes. *sigh*

Okay, enough of this for now. I have a schedule to follow (I will, really I will). Happy writing!
