NaNoWriMo Day One

Day 1: November 1st

Daily Word Count: 6,079

Total NaNo Goal Word Count: 6,079 / 50,000 (43,921 words to go)

Total Word Count: 6,079 / 80,000 (73,921 to go)

Note: I’m working toward 2 different word count goals. One is to hit 50k, which is the NaNoWriMo goal. If I hit that, I win NaNo this year, which is cool. The other goal is my ultimate goal, which is 80k and means I will be finished with the novel thereabouts.

Since I’m not writing chapters, I’ve broken my writing up into word count goals only.

  1. 6,000 – DONE
  2. 8,000
  3. 6,000
  4. 6,000
  5. 8,000
  6. 6,000
  7. 6,000
  8. 8,000
  9. 6,000
  10. 6,000
  11. 8,000
  12. 6,000

That’s means it will take me 12 days of writing (12 full sessions) to finish this book.

I do plan to take Sundays off, but I’m writing every single day otherwise. I should have this bitch done by November 13th or 14th, depending on when I get started on my last session. It may run over into the 14th.

So 2 weeks to write a novel. No pressure! However, I’m already feeling much more excited about this version of the story than I ever did version one. I dread writing that. This one feels organic and moody and spooky, which was the tone I wanted all along and just couldn’t grasp in the first version.

I have 6,079 words finished so far, and I’m very happy with my progress. I’m gonna sleep and eat and later tonight (November 1st – 2nd) I’m going to bang out 8,000 words.

Seems like a lot, but I know I can do it easily. It’s just a matter of sitting down and focusing. And I soooo want this novel done! I’m ready bitches!
