On Writing: NaNoWriMo update: day 7


Currently I’m up to almost 14,750 words and I’ve been writing every day, though not in the amounts needed to ‘win’ NaNoWriMo by reaching 50,000 words by 30 November at the latest. The current total includes more than 50% already written, which is technically cheating. Hopefully, I’ll catch up a bit next week, when I’ve got seven days off work and hope to steam ahead a bit: after all, I’m nearly through the first phase and looking forward to introducing my second lead character, while in the meantime a supporting character looks to be turning into almost a third lead.

But it’s the writing every day which is the important part, and as far as I’m concerned, the ‘win’ isn’t 50,000 words plus by three weeks on Saturday, it’s the final page of the book.
