Oops! I’ve been lazy about updating the blog on my NaNoWriMo progress on Haint Blue. BUT NO WORRIES! I have been hard at work every single day.
I just finished Day 5 and I am right on track! I wrote 6k today! Yesterday I wrote 5k, and on Sunday I wrote 1k. I hadn’t planned on writing at all on Sunday, but I thought why the hell not?
Anyway, here’s my stats for November 5th (day 5):
- 26,235 total words
- 23,765 words to go for NaNoWriMo (50k goal)
- 53,765 to go until the novel is complete (80k goal)
If I stay on schedule (and I should!) then I should hit my NaNoWriMo goal of 50,000 words on Saturday. I should be done with the novel on the 14th, possibly the 15th, depending on how long my writing session is that day.
I can’t even tell you how much I’m genuinely in love with this story now. Before I was trying to excited about it, but there was just something not quite right about it. Throwing out the bathwater and getting a new baby was the right decision.
I’m so glad I did it. It’s night and day how I feel about this novel now. I CANNOT WAIT UNTIL YOU READ IT.
