Here it is, November 30th, according to Nova Scotia time. Last night I stayed up until 4:00 this AM, slept several hours, then got on with today. I have been writing all day today with some short breaks in there.
Even with all that progress, and I do consider it progress, I am still just shy of the halfway mark. How I can ever write over 25000 words in one day is beyond me! I am making a valiant attempt nonetheless. The problem is that I have to go out to do a few errands, and that will mess up my writing time considerably. I suppose one could say I have already lost, but .. in NaNo vocabulary, I have already won just by taking it on.
My story is going along with its twists and turns and puzzles. My characters are full of surprises. I am not sure how I can stretch the story to include a second 50000 words (having the first 50000 written last NaNo), but I don’t think I am going to have to worry about that. I will just write until NaNo has ended in 24 hours. (Admission: I now doubt that I can get to 50000 words by the end of Wednesday, but we shall see how close I come.)
At least my stats don’t look quite as pathetic as they did 5 days ago. You can refer back to this November 25 post to compare.
Your Average Per Day — 832
Words Written Today — 6,926
I haven’t done all-nighters because I have to go to work early the next morning (leave home at 7.15 am), but I have stayed up until midnight a few night in a row. Yes. I had work the next day. Each day. I don’t know what I was thinking. But I couldn’t stop! That is the definition of addiction. Irrational decisions to get the craving you need.
Another definition of a writer. 🙂
