Not a great start: 609.
First post updated.
Not a bad day - made it to 4350. I'm trying to get some padding in so I can take a day off next week.
Ah! Got it! Sounded a bit more raunchy. I'm a planner, myself...
Today was 1,616 words.
Today's total was 1,135, for a total of 1,744.
Well, I'm on pace for National Novel Writing Month(s).
I got on a tear with an infodump earlier - made it to 7887..
I'm in for another year. (c.c. Russell on nano site) Cheating by working on a short story collection and a few non-fiction ideas that I am kicking around rather than a novel, so I'm a dirty nano cheat again.
Have you done NaNo before? Yes. Several times.
What genre are you writing? Literary? I suppose. Probably several genres to be honest.
Are you a planner or a pantster? Typically a pantster though occasionally a bit of both.
Sustenance of choice (food/drink)? Iced coffee, black. My all-day go-to.
Hit 7700 words this morning (trying to create a little bit of a cushion for the rougher days to come when my daughter is off of school for the holidays and my time disappears.
I've added you into the first post. I know about creating that cushion - I want to take a day off from it next week so I want to be well ahead. I went a bit nuts with an info dump today which helped.
I did 1358 words.
Man it is hard to do this on work week.
My story is very subnatural and crazyness at this point. But now the main character moving towards main mission, things will ride along.
I added 877 words to my total today.
8390 is my total as of tonight.
Good luck to all participants in this! (not taking part myself, just egging you on )
Question for you all: Do you feel it helps your quality of writing, or is it making you turn out... ummm... less than optimum standard (by your own measures) under pressure for the deadline?
First post updated.
As for Kurisan's question - the first draft of anything is usually crap, deadline or not. What the deadline does is make you actually do the writing instead of procrastinating. It gets your butt in the seat.
Got my 10K badge today - made it to 10,624.
Ending the night at 12,586
I have a ton of work to do!! I've written very little so far. Here's to burning the midnight oil tonight!
Totals updated. I made it to 14,707 today. Not as high a daily word count but then I tend to read the Sunday papers. Hope to be back around 2k tomorrow.
Well, sadly my total at the moment is 2,244. However, with absolutely no expectations and only the goal of actually writing something, I'm pretty happy so far.
After three day pause.
I did today 3798 words.
1535 today for a total of 3779.
We're now over a week in. If you haven't been doing so, be sure to back up your novel. Do it today! (I back up daily to a USB stick).
I use evernote to backup my stories.
Anyway, here is my count for today: 1982 words
