OK, if I keep having writing weeks like this, I will be cruising to the end of the book soon if my math is correct. First, here’s this week’s math:
4,213 words written.
Days writing: 7 out of 7.
Daily writing goals met (500+ words): 4 out of 7 days. [EDITOR’S NOTE: Two of those missed days were off of my goal by only a couple dozen words.]
My current word count on my new project is 56,796. As I mentioned before, I am shooting for a maximum word count of 100,000 or somewhat shorter. If I meet my minimum daily quota of 500 words for all of those remaining days (3,500 words per week, to put it another way), I will have an additional 31,500 words, putting me somewhere just under 90,000 words.
Right now, if I continue on this pace, there is a slight chance I will finish a rough draft of this project by the end of the year.
This is unfamiliar ground to me as a writer. I’m beginning to like it.
[YET ANOTHER EDITOR’S NOTE: Come back to this space soon; I’m going to have a story from my Writing Biography series that has a NaNoWriMo theme to it in honor of this year’s upcoming event.]
