Yes, I wrote 1,781 words additional today.
14,305 / 50,000
Actually, I've got another 473 started on another 'part' of the novel, but I'm not done with it yet, so not ready to add those words to the daily count. (smile)
I don't actually write chapters, per se. It's more like I write a part -- or what I often call a chunk! (grin) Anyway, that puts me (as you can see) at 28.6% finished to date...
(Yes, you're thinking I should be further along. LOL. Don't worry. I'll get there by hell or high water.)
Interestingly enough, Marilyn mistressmarilyn and I haven't gone out of our way at all in order to participate in NaNo. (Which is probably why we don't have larger word counts at this point.) She's had some extremely busy days at work and I, too, have had busy days -- and we've just written when we could find the free time. We are by no means spending hours a day at this...
We do plan to do exactly that come next week, which is vacation time in our house. Even so, I can't see us going overboard about it, unless we come down to the wire and are terribly short of words.
My personal bottom line is that if I don't get there I don't -- which won't detract one bit from my having participated! But I still am strongly convinced I can finish, so I guess we'll have to wait and see.
And many thanks to those of you who've offered encouraging words along the way! So kind of you. Again, it's been fun so far. A lot of fun!
