current Word Count is 2285

...Last two days I haven't added even one word. I really need to get the ball rolling.

Wow, I thought I was doing pretty badly (haven't been able to write much lately because of end of semester assignments) but I'm doing better than most of you. Thus making me a better person.

~7500

Congradulations on not having a life

I've still got you beat, and I've written four words in the last three days.

Not four thousand.

Four.

I really need to step it up.

So it's a race you want, eh?

No, I can't race. :( I'm going to run out of story before 40k and have to spend the last week padding out an extra 10k.

Well... I sit at a measly 1777...

I have not written a word in about a week, but I start a three day weekend today so perhaps I can add a little more and start catching up.

Now if only I can get off these friggin message boards.. :)

I have 83. :grin:
:mrgreen:

I quit. I only accumulated 4,000 during the first week, then decided to stop because I fell behind and the story was going no where. It was fun while it lasted though.

I'll wait for the next year, and hopefully I can pull it off by then.

I'm slowing mine down. Not quitting it, but I'm not going to do my story in a month (see signature for a link to the story Secrets of Serodor). I decided it's better to take your time and have quality instead of quantity.

Sincerely,

In the mortal words of someone, "The first draft of anything is shit".

Now, you can assume that some certain percentage of your work is going to be totally awesome. Say that percentage is 20%. You want 10 thousand words of pure genius? You have to write another 40 thousand of shit. Nanowrimo is about making you write, it's about making you practice. It doesn't matter if you write total crap as long as it gets written. And who knows, it might just turn out to be good.

It is kind of late to get started though. I only have to write 1039 words a day to get done on time, and that's totally awesome. :)
