We went to the local NaNo gathering, with everyone eating and writing away! (grin)
Now we're back home to work again. Actually, both Marilyn mistressmarilyn and I did around 1,800 words (weird how we tend to write the same amount of words in any given time), PLUS we ate a meal, during the two hours we were there. As Marilyn has said over and over again, you can write 1,000 per hour pretty comfortably. And that seems to be true for us. She thinks a person should be able to write 8,000 in a work day (eight hours), but I feel that would be pretty difficult for most people (including us). But what generally trips us up word-count-wise is the breaking to do research and novel notes...
Anyway, here's my current word count (according to NaNo):
48,397 / 50,000
So I have 1,603 words left to go. (Or well under two hours of work.)
I'm heading back to it, as we're thinking we'll go to Starbucks (to celebrate) and then shopping, after we're finally done.
