I so barely reached my word count last night but I reached it! Huzzah! Which also means that the next milestone is 25,000! This is the danger point for me because I can already feel myself running out of steam. Also my most successful participation in Nanowrimo (back in 2008 or 2009 I think) never reached the 25,000 word count. It's only going to get more grueling so it's time to just grit my teeth and keep on!

Suez Canal and the Kelpie )

I was scheduled to go to this Saturday's write in, but had to postpone because...Raymond E Feist will be in the region and I'm going to see him! And get some books signed...and even if he runs out of time, at least I'll have seen him. Fangirling over favorite authorness over here :P

Oh and Widget!

Well today was a pretty bad day in terms of writing quality - I actually had no idea how to fill up this time (because I have still failed to find an appropriate Celtic Sea Voyage legend) so it is instead filled up with the political and professional concerns of James' father. I should write more about sailing in the Mediterranean but I suppose tomorrow can be 'oohs' and 'aahs' over crossing the Suez Canal.

I'm way below my wordcount today and tomorrow I'm going on a day trip to the next state. Agh but something strange happened today. I'm so tired today it's not even funny. I woke up at 10am, ate breakfast, sat down, did some work and writing, got super tired around 3pm, slept until 5:30pm, still felt exhausted, ate, and now it's 8pm and I'm ready to go to bed.

I hope I'm not getting ill or anything, but I know better than to deny my body when it does funny things like this, so I guess I'll go to bed.

Today's Writing Experience )

Word Goal: 3,500 (adjusted to 1,667)
Words Written: 1,705

Well, yesterday was a dedicated writing day and today was less of one. I had lunch with an old friend from my College and we caught up all day, so I only got a chance to work on my novel in the evening. Well, I knew that I wouldn't be able to repeat yesterday's success of 3,500, but I did at least want to hit the recommended daily goal of 1,667. All in all, that would push me beyond the 5,000 word milestone and it feels good to be even 10% there.

And that's it for today! Onwards to Day 3.

Word Goal: 3,500 (w00t!)

And it has begun.

Yesterday I vaguely planned out 15 chapters, each 3,500 words long (more out of practicality and simple math surrounding 50,000 words in 30 days than for any other reason). Basically what that accomplished was giving me an idea of where to direct this month.

I'm going to be writing a summary journal entry at the end of each day's writing just to track and record the experience for future learning. Here goes...oh my I feel so tired actually. I can't wait to sleep.

Novel Planning and Writing )

All in all, a nice start (a hopeful one anyway) and now I'm off to bed! Goodnight!

I hope that everyone else had great starts to their Nano projects!
