That’s not a typo.
From 12:01AM to 11:48PM, I wrote just over 20,000 words for my novel. And it’s still not done.
So yes, I have hit the goal for Camp NaNoWrimo. I even surpassed my person goal of 60,000 words. Next milestone? 70,000. Then 80,000.
Here’s a nice screenshot of my word count stats.
Now that’s what I call a hike!
Expect a more detailed post to come!
Song Of The Day: Pepper, by Butthole Surfers.
Word Count: 10065.
Well I broke the ten thousand mark. To help me push to that mark, I jumped a few scenes past my story and started writing a chapter that I had a better idea about.
Once I was done with that (I was just over nine thousand words at that point), I jumped to the previous chapter and finished writing it.
I can’t say I’m liking everything I’ve written so far, but I’m sure next month and beyond I can morph what I have written to a complete product. I can’t keep rewriting and rewriting or else I’ll never get a chance to publish.
Last night I spent some time writing. After midnight I just spent the time relaxing and talking to people. By the end of it I looked at the clock and it was 4AM! I jumped into bed and got up after noon. Fortunately I still had enough time to write and get other things done around the house.
My reward for hitting that milestone:
I couldn’t resist biting into a piece before taking the picture.
I don’t expect my work count to go up much higher during the work week. Stranger things have happened though.
Now pardon me as I enjoy the nice weather and a refreshing mojito!
