What's Your Nano Word Count? (1 Viewer)

Well done, Plu!

I remember when I hit the 40,000 mark the last 10,000 words flowed easily. Up until that point it felt like I'd been pushing water uphill.

Anybody still in this thing?

While I haven't been participating directly in Nanowrimo, I've been keeping track of the word count in the rewrite of one of my manuscripts. My total for this month stands at 51,014. So I guess to an extent, I was in it, and now I'm out of it.

Hey, that counts! Nice work.

I sooo badly wanted to just bury this thing tonight, but I don't think I have 7500 left in me today. :) At least I have the balance of the story mapped out in my head, and I think it's going to go a bit over 50k. Maybe that will leave something useable after editing (my concern with a novel this short is after hacking out and editing, it might not retain enough length). -- Oh well, I'm going to get the story down and worry about all that later.

Edit - 46,029... Finishing up tomorrow night I hope. Story's going great.

Ka-Boom! I wrote 4,000 words today and buttoned up the rough draft. Probably another 3-4k in filling holes in the plot, then I'll start hacking and whacking on it. No real idea whether it's long enough to be considered a real novel, but I'm pretty pleased with the outcome. Good story, decent characters. Increase in self-discipline, which is why I like to do this in the first place. Thanks for the support, those of you that do. :)

I hope anyone else who's pushing to finish this has good luck in their final thrust. I'm glad to see that 50k mark, m'self.

Total of what I wrote in November is 5017 words. Just 10,000 short of Nanos minimum. Fuck it, I'm lucky if I can find enough power within to complete some shit by the end of 2014.

Meh. Better than last year, and maybe next year I'll be smart enough to know at least somewhat what I'm writing instead of just typing. On the plus side, it was good practice and I know a little more about my characters.

When I finished last night. I was at 23K. I kind of just faded off the last week. I had a week off Uni, and I took advantage of it with friends and family.

I finished NaNo early with 107,683 words because--for all intents and purposes--I did not have a life for the month of November, and I didn't sleep very much.

1,687 so far. I'm behind on Day Two already, but I've got some spare time today to make up the difference. Onward! :D

Good luck, guys. I'm not doing it this year, although I am working on finishing last years attempt. Think I'm a little over 24,000 now.
