    NaNoWriMo Progress Thread!

    Discussion in 'NaNoWriMo' started by JJ_Maxx, Nov 1, 2013.

    Let the madness begin!

    I hit up my story at midnight, and hashed out 1770 words, to get me started. I will probably write more after I wake up 'today', but it's always nice to get a jump start!

    I see a few others have some words on paper! Awesome job!

    Started writing it today, and I've slogged away and gotten just under 3500 words finished :D

    Stopping at 2,643. It's not where I wanted to be today, but it's been a really hard, really long day. There was a terrible car accident by my house, I've had a headache since I opened my eyes, and I am done for today. Done, I say. Done.

    Edit: You all have done really well today. Congrats to all of you :)

    Great job everyone! Sorry about your day Trish, kudos for getting as much as you did!

    I'm gonna call it a night at 3100 words. There's always tomorrow, and this is only the first day. Also, I'm finding my story is moving along slower than I thought it would. I might have an issue with pacing. :)

    3617 so far.
    Hopefully, at some point, I'll work out what it is I'm actually blathering on about.

    I worry that a lack of planning may lead me to running out of steam at around 10,000 words...

    I always worry about that at some point, but it seems to work out. Just keep going. :)

    At 4,250 words now. I'm trying to pace myself, or else I might lose interest.

    3145 words of disconnected rambling! Haha! It's slowly forming an identity...I think.

    Still trying to buffer as the new Call of Duty comes out tomorrow and my wife's b-day is Tuesday. Real life stuff is going to threaten to put me behind. Sitting at 5400.

    Even 5k words... I was caught off guard by a chest cold so I'm struggling with that... I'll blow past the word counts once I get back into a semi delusional state.

    I'm managing to keep up my style of rhumba writing - write a little, go back and tweak a little, write a little more.
    Which is good. I have to keep an eye on my word count though. I'm slow but steady - The little turtle that could. lol.
    I'm up to 5364. Managed a page before church this morning as I got up super early due to the fall-back clock change.
