Obligatory Mid-Month Status Update

I’m up to 32,517 words for NaNoWriMo, which puts me slightly above par. I told myself that I was going to write more in my NaNoWriMo story since I took the week off from work, but I ended up doing just the usual 1,667 words per day for NaNo and doing something like 3,500 per day in STEPHEN, my other work in progress.

Why? Mostly because of the characters, but more likely because I have been working on STEPHEN since the beginning of August. It seems like it’s been dragging on forever because I was writing at the slow (for me) pace of 500 words every other day. When the characters wanted to keep going, I had to stop because my eyes were tired. But now I’m down to only nine scenes left, so it seems reasonable that I’ll finish before the end of the month.

I’ve also cut my Internet time down to about 15 minutes per day. This has allowed me to finish reading five books in the past four days, but it’s always more fulfilling to spend time with books and my characters instead of real-life people the Internet. 🙂

How are your writing endeavors going?

  1. Congratulations on the word count!

    My writing endeavors are going slow, but I’m taking my time about getting back to a story I shelved last summer — figuring out where it should go now (which might or might not be where I thought it would go back then… 🙂 )


    1. Always good to go back to an old story! Having that kind of new perspective on it can make it a lot better than you ever thought it could be.
