Novel in November – Obsessing over Word Counts. @NaNoWriMo

Well, we’re over the 3000 word mark, but to hit that all important 50’000 words I need to produce at least 1740 words each day! At my current rate, I’ll be finished by 30th December. That’s not a novel in November is it?

More caffeine anyone?

A Novel in November – Begin at the Beginning, The Ending is Some Way Off! @NaNoWriMo

I’m writing this in chunks, but I fear I’m never going to hit the 50’000 words by the end of the month at this rate. My current style is write the chapter. Acknowledge that I appear to be swinging wildly between past and present tense and agree to sort out details like tense and grammar on draft two.

For now, it’s quantity over quality. This way, at least I have the gist of what is going on through the book.

Ooh. It’s a book. I’m 33 and I’m writing a book. Another book in fact. That makes me practically a grown up.
