As of 11:59pm on Nov. 10th, my wordcount for Nano stood at: 52 998. Which puts me on track for ~158K. Unfortunately, I only have two and a half chapters left before the story ends...so I don't think it's entirely plausible that I'll break the ~168K that I did last year. I'll probably hit 75K by the 15th, then spend the rest of the month editing and rewriting for production.

 

I can't say I'm too upset about my work ethic. :P I'm off to go celebrate by slacking off for the rest of the day and give my bleeding stomach a break from coffee and timbits. :ph34r: Then maybe I'll think about working off the three pounds I mysteriously gained over ten days... -_-

 

lots 'o love,

:o You utter, utter .... :snork:

 

Congratulations!!! :2thumbs::music::music: :music:

I guess that's why you didn't update at NaNo. Too busy typing your fingers to the bone.

 

I've only just reached 15,500.

What is Nano?

 

National Novel in November, something like that. It's a thing. You promise you're going to get a first draft in a month, or I think at least 50K of it. Even establiched professional writers like to do it -- or to do something about it, anyway -- sometimes.

 

Last year I wrote a bunch of short short stories. I was already working on something else at the time. This year, I don't know, maybe I'll call it "finish projects month" and judge my success by whether this rewrite I'm doing is done, and the state of the thing I interrupted to do it.

Hey! At least you're still on track. Yeah, I've been busy with going to random write-ins and organizing various nano related events to get people writing locally. The thing is, I *daily* write 5K+ for my job and other sideprojects, so when you're in the groove, writing a little extra every night for nano wasn't exactly a stretch (although now my other projects are suffering somewhat...) Plus I did a super detailed outline and have been thinking of writing this story for a loooong time...so yeah. I feel like I cheated or something. :ph34r:

 

Good luck cammmmmmy!

Yeah. I think that really sums up what nano is all about. Just...something to encourage you to write. Doesn't really matter what, as long as you're writing something. Good luck on your projects!
