Help Me Stay On Track – Win An Amazon Gift Card!

Amazon Voucher $25

Hello everyone!

I’m writing in Penang this week and have specifically travelled here to write 60,000 words (or a complete book!)  I’ll only be away for one week and need your help to keep me on track.

To make sure I don’t slack off and spend all week eating Roti and getting foot massages I’m running a small giveaway for my loyal readers and subscribers.  All you have to do to win is guess how many words I’ll manage to get written between 8pm 23 May (tonight) and midnight on Monday 30 May, 2016.  The person who guesses closest without going over will be the winner. (If more than one person guesses the winning answer I’ll have a random draw from those people to find a supreme champion!)

To make things fairer I won’t be checking any of the entries until I land back in Australia the night of Monday 30 May.  I’ll be home just before midnight so this fits nicely with the writing time.  I won’t know how little or how many you guys have chosen until the time to write more has already passed.

Just to give you some idea of what I can achieve when I’m writing in my ‘zone’:

  • My personal goal is 60,000 minimum for this week.  If I get really enthused there’s a slim chance I could get to 100,000 words.  Really, really slim!
  • I once wrote 16,000 words in one day, sitting at Mcdonalds for seven hours.
  • Sometimes I ignore my goals and play on facebook (or get massages!)
  • I’m banking on self-discipline to help me finish three more books before the end of June.
  • I used to often write 1500 words in the morning before work.
  • I’ll be doing most of this writing at BBQ Nights – a quite restaurant right on the beach in Penang.
  • HINT: You should definitely choose a number over 20,000.  If I write anything lower than that and I’m giving up writing forever!

  1. You didn’t really explain how to enter but I am assuming we do so on here??

    57550 words. 🙂 Cause you’ll be unable to resist the lure of lemon chicken forever.

    • Hey, Kerrie – the lemon chicken lady is now closed on Wednesday, so she’s saved me from myself until then! I should have been clearer about the entries – you were meant to click on the rafflecopter link in the post. But don’t worry – I’ll include all the guesses in the comments too 🙂 Fingers crossed this keeps my bum in the chair!

    • Thanks Anne – fingers crossed I get that high. I’m determined to prove I can be disciplined and do this like a full time writer should!

    • Thanks Tracie – that’s what I like – someone who reaches for the stars! If I get to your guess I’ll be over the moon 🙂
