NaNoWriMo – Day 6

   Posted by: Faith   in NaNoWriMo

The widget’s in place, but it’s not working yet… other people have had some difficulties with them as well, so it’s not just me. All in due time…

Going into today, I’m sitting at 9,285/50,000. Not bad. I’m ahead of where you’re officially supposed to end Day 5, and will certainly surpass the day 6 total easily… which has led me to consider upping my total for the month.

I’m not sure if it’s possible, seeing as how I have a number of major events coming up, starting next week – however, if I can manage to snag a few 5k days, I could possibly finish the month with 75k. Like I said, I’m not sure if that’s feasible or even if I should try to think along those lines, because all I really want to do with this year’s NaNo is finish my story, regardless of how long it is (beyond 50k, that is). I’m fairly certain that, with the way things are going, I’ll need to write plenty more than 50k to get things wrapped up, even though I initially thought it would be more than enough. Then again, writing a lot means I have more to cut and/or condense later, ultimately making it a better story. I hope. o_O

In other news, I’ve received 2 more free books in the past week. I think I’ll finish them and then post reviews, as opposed to just throwing the covers up on here in my exuberance.

And now, enough procrastinating. Time to get writing… 5k day, here I come!

75 thousand is waaaay crazy. im aiming for 60 grand, because thats 2,000 perday, and reasonable (and also a round number for the OCD inclined) were going to have to work on them so hard after anyway…

Yeah… I’m not really going to hold out much hope for making it there, esp. with a bridal shower for Anna, a tech rehearsal and performance, 3 more family birthdays, a few more cat vet visits for check-ups, a wedding song and Christmas concert practices coming up starting… Monday. o_O I suppose I should probably work on my script course and Heritage class in there somewhere too. GAHHH!!! Yes, 50-60k is much, MUCH more reasonable…
