NaNoWriMo (day 8)

Goal:       1667

Written:  3144

Total: 22106 in 8 days

 

Just a quick update tonight.  I’m slowly but surely increasing my daily average.  I’ve been trying for 2500 a day so that I could punch out 75,000 words this month.  My average is up to 2763.25 words per day, which is really good considering day one was only 738 words.

I’m trying to build in a cushion just in case something happens and I have to miss a day or two later on.

Today’s writing was difficult.  it didn’t flow nearly as well as the last couple days.  i fear this scene will need to be heavily rewritten when I come back around to it.  It’s a necessary transition, but I still think it can be written better than what I did tonight.

Plus, I’m FREAKING tired.  I’m having a hard time keeping my eyes open.  So, I’m off to bed.  I just wanted to throw out a quick update.  My total novel word count is now 66610.  I can’t believe it.  If I’m shooting for a 125k novel, that’s essentially the halfway point.  If I keep up my pace, I’ll be all but finished by the end of the month.  That’s a terrifyingly fun thought!

Also, Brandon Sanderson’s Alloy of Law came out today.  I’m so busy with writing that I haven’t even had the time to buy it, and I definitely don’t have time to read it.  DANG IT!

Until next time…
