NaNoWriMo is going great!
Or, at least it’s going good…
Ok, I’m behind on my word count, but it’s not like I’m so behind I’ll never catch up.
[Insert catch phrase of 16 year old daughter: “Don’t Judge Me.”]
I haven’t started writing yet today. My current word count is 12,235. Not bad for 9 days of writing.
Well… if we’re going to get technical about it, it’s been 6 days of writing. I didn’t write at all the first day of NaNo, and I got a little sidetracked a couple other days…
Which doesn’t make me a sucky NaNoWriMo’er (Yes, it’s a word — I just used it!), it just means that, when I put my heart and mind into it, I can sit down and spew out a bunch of words that may or may not
be the work of a literary genius form complete and/or coherent sentences.
And, as you can see by the above handy dandy gadget up there, hitting 50K is still completely doable! I just need to average 1,793 words/day instead of 1,667.
Before NaNo started, I actually did an outline. I had my characters all figured out… I was a total Planner!
And then I started actually writing my novel. (more…)
