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

End of day three and I'm still moving along. Two more good hours left on writing time, but I have currently 17.721. It's nice to be ahead. I'll be slowing down soon enough.
 
I'm hanging in at 6784 words at the moment. Have a pretty good idea of where I'm going to end up, just need to work out how exactly to get there. Then I'll see if the journey changes the destination along the way.

I'm sitting at just over 30k I had hoped to be at 40k tonight but I doubt that's going to happen. I'm at my I don't want to write right now, plus other reasons why today will be not happening. Still I am ahead of where I need to be so it's all good.

Set my alarm for daft o'clock, and managed 31,029 so far, even spending an hour editing the previous day's words. - Thing is, I think momentum does help promote some very healthy prose, and I'm pleased with the standard to date. Yeh, word count is great, but far better if they're words that count too.

It'll be great if I can trundle through December at the same pace, but it's very, very tiring when you're as laden with misspent years as I am...

Well, I did it. I actually finished early in the month compared to my rushing to get the words done in the last couple days. Validated at 50,100 words. I actually finished the story I was working on. I only counted the words written November. I still have a few handwritten pages to type up and add in, but with those counted and the written portion before November, the first draft is roughly 70k.

I'm in the process of writing in a few scenes in the first book and starting on the Novella that comes between the first book and this one. I hadn't planned on writing it, but I really wanted to so I'm going to.

Yes, I managed to break through 50,000 a couple of days ago, and now stand at almost 57,000. I needed NaNoWriMo as, of recent, my output has been a little less than I would have liked. When you lose momentum, it's so damned easy to surrender to excuses such as a headache or a frozen shoulder (I've used them all other than writer's block!)

As I posted elsewhere, if just 10,000 people managed at least 50,000 words, that's half a billion new ones formed in November. Doubtless, a decent proportion will go on to entertain both ours and future generations. - It doesn't get more awesome than that!

I never did do nano-wrimo because of adult content...namely profanity and course language and the somewhat adult nature of my writing--i mean i can write stuff that doesn't include porn and or violence,but i dunno if i can write a novel that long without somebody calling somebody a punk bitch or telling them to fuck off
