NaNoWriMo 2016 Report: Down for the Count

Thursday, December 01, 2016 0 comments
Final word count: 5,315
Average words per day: 177

I won't lie and say that this wasn't a disappointing finish for what would have been my 10th anniversary of doing NaNoWriMo.

On the upside: I have 5,315 words that I didn't have when November started.

I also learned that sometimes only having a concept of an idea for a story isn't nearly enough to try to hang the entire structure of a novel upon. Sometimes it works . . . and sometimes it doesn't.

Still, I did learn a lot about trying to stray outside of my usual genre of science fiction. I might actually finish this someday . . .

So, until next year . . . Keep writing!

NaNoWriMo 2016 Report: Week Four

Current word count: 5,315
Words this week: 1,739
Average words per day: 248

All things being relative, it has been a better (writing) week than most.

My word count is still way, way behind where it needs to be. Is 10,000 words possible before midnight on the 30th?

We'll see . . .

NaNoWriMo 2016 Report: Week Three

Tuesday, November 22, 2016 0 comments
Current word count: 3,576
Words this week: 361
Average words per day: 52

Okay, so not only is 50,000 words not happening, but even my revised goal of 24,000 words is very unlikely to happen. (Why 24,000 words instead of 25,000? Because 24,000 was my lowest word count over for NaNoWriMo.)

I'm going to try to keep plugging along and see how many words I can finally get down. How ever many it turns out to be, it will still be more than I had as of 12:01am on November 1st.
