Writing Session

Word Count: 12,346

Okay first off to be clear, I didn’t write twelve thousand three hundred and forty-six words today. I only wrote nine thousand eight hundred and fifty-four words today. The other few thousand words was written over the course of the last six days or so. I apologize for not updating. The last few days have been hectic and while I haven’t gotten a lot of writing done over the last five days, I more than made up for it today!

Today was actually two writing sessions. One morning session were I wrote about five thousand words at a coffee shop over about three hours, and then an afternoon session with the official NaNoWriMo local writing session where I wrote a little more than four thousand in three hours. So very productive writing sessions. I find it interesting I was just as productive at a random coffee shop as I was among a bunch of other NaNoWriMo-ers (who often talk quiet a bit and provide some distraction).

NaNoWriMo 2013

Days Since Update: 7
Delta: +12,346
Daily Average: +1,764

Prime Delta: +570
Word Count: 28,903
Remaining: 21,097

So given that nine thousand of that twelve thousand was today, my daily average is obviously false but also very interesting, because it is slightly higher than the average needed to write each day. I guess that math explains my slightly positive prime delta. So today basically decided if I was going to win NaNoWriMo I think. Assuming no amazing bodily harm taking the entire day to write so many words will not be in vain. I shall win NaNoWriMo!

Buddy Watch

Okay! So what have my buddies have been doing while I was being horrible (but redeeming myself!). I’m somewhat sad to report that it seems everybody has taken off this past weekend but I can at least happily report everybody has broken twenty-five thousand words, but nobody seems to be up to twenty-eight thousand three hundred and thirty-three, which is today’s goal. I hope chimera116CinsAngelSithwitch13, and MightyMur are still writing!

Everlasting Update

Novel Word Count: 154,624 (+12,346)
Outline Word Count: 36,639 (+57) 

So wow. I broke one hundred and fifty thousand words in my novel today. I was flabbergasted. I really didn’t want my first ever novel to have that many words in it. I’ve set my new word count at one hundred and seventy thousand words which I’m almost guaranteed to break if I follow NaNoWriMo. I have made it clear that if I finish my novel before reaching fifty thousand words, I’ll be declaring myself a NaNoWriMo winner either way. However given what I have left, I’m not sure if I’ll finish the entire novel by the end of NaNoWriMo. We’ll see.

So I blew through about five scenes today. Everybody is now at the docks, expecting a rescue, except of course nobody is in any position to rescue anyone. They’re all going to have to work to their way out of it, and not all of them will. Muahahaha!
