Nano ’16 Progress Announcement

I think I’ve said it here before, but I’m pretty well just dedicated to doing NaNoWriMo every year. And this year’s project is going UNCOMMONLY WELL.

Like, so well I’m afraid I’m gonna jinx myself by the end of the month. D:

By last night’s tally, I’m at 5937 words already, and for those of you who don’t know the layout of the Nano challenge, that’s 937 words ABOVE yesterday’s goal. (Further breakdown: the challenge is to write a 50,000 word first draft of a novel in 30 days, which comes to about 1,667 words a day you need to write.) Yeah, it’s only been three days but so far I’m averaging a little shy of 2000 words a day. And so far all of those days have been work days, which means I actually have LESS time to write. >.>

It’s good though. This novel is probably going to shape up to be around 65,000 words–at least for it’s rough draft. I’ve got a pretty clear picture of the… flow of it. If not necessarily the outline. (Although, I do have probably more of an outline for it than I did for my previous nano projects. That’s probably why I’m doing so well on it. >.> <.< >.>) For once I am ACTUALLY confident and not just pretending to be that I can finish the entire first draft of this thing this month. I’m already mostly on track for 60k by the end of November. Another 5,000 probably isn’t going to kill me–especially if it’s to actually get to the part where I can write “THE END” at the bottom of the page.

But yeah. Things are going actually pretty well this year. 🙂
