NaNoWriMo 2017 Report: The Continuing Mission

Friday, December 01, 2017 0 comments
Final word count: 10,232
Average words per day: 341

Well, that wraps it up for this year's NaNoWriMo.

My word count was not the 25,000 words that I had originally planned, but I'll definitely take the 10,232 words that I did manage to produce this year. That's roughly twice what I achieved last year, so that's definitely a good thing. (Any word count greater than zero... right?)

The story itself went off into an unexpected that: 1) makes sense, but, 2) is going to be interesting to resolve. I believe that I have managed to recapture much of the original "tone" of the original story, but this one is turning out to be a slightly different book. Funny how that seems to happen in sequels and followup stories, huh?

With effort and luck, the final version of this story might see print by August. We shall see . . .

NaNoWriMo 2017 Report: Week Four

Wednesday, November 29, 2017 0 comments
Current word count: 8.911
Words this week: 1,843
Average words per day: 263

It was not exactly a stellar week in terms of word count. I really had expected to hit 10,000 words by this point, but it looks like I will probably have to settle for 10,000 words as my end goal for this year.

The story has stayed chiefly focused on the playing out a specific scene and sequence, which is interesting because it's a scene and place I probably would never have imagined the story would go when I first started writing it. It will be interesting to see how it all plays out.

Only two more days to go, so write on!
