Writing Stuff

November 1, 2015

I have my first 3k and I haven't been to bed yet.  The story is going well, though it keeps slipping out of the outline a bit.  No matter.  I was hoping for about 300 words for each entry and right now I'm getting about 1k each.  It will not stay that way, but that gives me a lovely base to build on.

And I had a lovely 15,369 for the first day.  That's a nice way to start off my November!  I wrote and wrote and wrote more.  It's a shame my back is giving out sitting here.  I'd be tempted to write all night, but it's off to bed and back in a few hours.

I am having a good NaNo.

Day 2 and 10,061.  My back is not quite as bad and really, I am simply sitting here and focusing on words and not it.  I'm really pleased with how nicely everything is moving.  25k already!  Yay!

Of course, when you are writing like this, there is absolutely no time for anything else in life.

10, 123.

I am not sure how I'm doing this well since I keep hitting all kinds of odd problems with the outline.  No, really, they left that place two days ago.  No reason to wake up there now and wonder where to go. They went.  They are somewhere else.

But over all, it's going well!

10035.  Harder to make that 10k today.  My left arm is sore from using the cane and all the weight on the wrist, which is making it harder to type.  But I'm still moving forward.  I am still in the first 1/3rd of the novel, too -- but the words per outline section are starting to move back into the 300 range that I had expected.

My main character is troubled about something that was told to him.  Yeah, that is going to get much worse.

Evil writer.  LOL

8139 words.  My first total below 10k, though I am still averaging that much.  I hope to go back up to 10k for a few days, but actually, if I drop to 6k right now, I'll still hit 200k for the month.  That doesn't seem too bad.

Story is good.  Just finally pulled a few things together and the new fun begins.  Poor characters.

I am very close to 6k already today.  That's good.  60k over all and I'll get more. 

Actually, I made it to 8k, so I'm good.  I also got a new bear and he's adorable.  Makes me happy.  The novel is going well.  My Snow Elf has given away his secret at last, and everything is going to be moving quickly for a while here.

But I am aiming at the 6k days now.  There are other things to get done in life.  I think.
