NaNoWriMo is now halfway over. In order to have 50,000 words on November 30; my current total should be 25,000 words, at 1,667 words a day. My current word count should be 25,000. My actual count is 17,XXX, which means I need to write 2,167 words each day for the next 15 days.
I started out keeping up with the word count. I had a short list of scenes that I wanted to write, and came up with a few more. It’s my habit, and probably not a good one, but I constantly edit as I go, which holds up the work.
Will I make it? Doubtful. I told myself that I’m doing this to get in the habit of writing every day, which I’m doing. On your profile page, there are a variety of badges you can earn whenever you reach a milestone, and I’ve hit every one so far. But I was really hoping to get the winner’s badge!
