Well, friends, on the National Novel Writing Month front, things are running hot and cold. I’ve tried to stick to the 1600+ word count per day to make it possible to reach 50,000 words by the end of November, but haven’t always hit the mark. Here’s what I’ve found out:
- The point is quantity, not quality, so you end up writing a lot of words that don’t add much to your novel.
- When you’ve got deadlines for other gigs, you’ll need to get those done first, so putting in “regular gig” word count is the priority.
- At the halfway point (today), word count total should be at around 25,000 – my tally is currently 16,164.
Any votes? Should I keep going even if I don’t finish the novel? I’d like to hear from veterans of NaNoWriMo out there. Majority will rule!
