It’s November 15th. I’m halfway through NaNoWriMo 2014, and I can’t believe that my word count is hovering around 25,000 words. The mid-month slump has definitely hit. I missed a few days of writing, which forced me to average upwards of 2,000 words the nights that I do write.
How many words did you write this week? 10,675
What’s your biggest accomplishment this week? I finished the first chapter/section of the “Blood Tithe” project. It’s given me an idea of how long each section will be when they’re finished, so I now have an idea of the story’s ultimate length.
Do you have a favorite scene so far? Still the scene in the supermarket.
Do you have a scene that didn’t quite meet your expectations? It feels a bit repetitive, but the scene at the end of the first section was pretty anticlimactic.
Are you sticking to your outline? Pretty much.
What’s your writing routine? The majority of my writing gets done between 11 PM and 1 AM. I’m still using Write or Die to get things done.
Have you been keeping up with other writing commitments? Yup
Total NaNoWriMo Word Count So Far: 24,436
Words to Goal: 25,564
Days Remaining: 16
Are you meeting your word count goals?
