NaNoWriMo Updates (2010)

NaNoWriMo = National Novel Writing Month

Here I am going to try to keep an updated word count throughout the NaNoWriMo challenge, posted every day if possible.   Since the goal is 50,000 words from November 1-30, that means an average of 1667 words a day!  This is my first attempt so I need all the nudges of encouragement (and prayers) available to me.   :)  Each day I will do the count no later than midnight for that day and get it posted here asap.

I got NaNo badges from: http://badger.dinorodeo.com/

Day 1: 1913 words

Day 2: 1959 = total of 3872 words;  as of today you will see here that I also added two widgets that show my word count in two different ways.

Day 3: 2191 = total of 6063 words;  I really like that one of my widgets shows the percentage of how much I have written of the 50,000 words.  :)

Merit badge: 5k words

Day 4: 1275 = total of 7338 words;  not the greatest writing day.

Day 5: 1344 = total of 8682 words;  behind in daily goal but ahead over all

Day 6: 1548 = total of 10230 words;  have 21% written.

Merit badge: 10k words

Day 7: 416 = total of 10646 words;  up to 22%, have some catching up to do.

Day 8: 1027 = total of 11673 words;  24% done, must write much to catch up!

Day 9: 398 = total of 12071 words;  not good, but I kept writing after midnight which puts my % up further.  I’ll add that into Day 10′s total.

Day 10: 645 = total of 12716 words;  26%, another slow day, but I’ve 20 days left in which to write.

Day 11: 1415 = total of 14131 words;  29% completed, 4206 words needed to catch up
