An awesome word count… so far!

It’s beyond midnight of Nov 3 (therefore it’s Nov 4 already, here in Singapore) and I just want to blog about a few NaNoWriMo stats. I don’t expect the same kind of progress during weekdays so I’m glad I have this buffer.

 

Day 1

Words Written: 1,773

Total Word Count: 1,773 / 50,000

Special Note: I got a treat from my husband for hitting the 5K milestone. I got a snack called “Yan Yan” which is a childhood snack that I love but don’t often eat anymore. Yum! I can’t wait to find out what I get for 10K! 

 

Day 3

Words Written: 3,571

Total Word Count: 8,739 / 50,000

Scenes Completed: 4

Reflections…

I ended up including two characters I didn’t plan for who each only showed up for one scene. I’ve also changed a character’s name (“Trisha”) because it sounded too much like another character’s name (“Tristan”, her brother). It was advised by someone who was nice enough to critique my outline. The new name is still similar (“Kristin”), but not too similar, I hope? Lastly, anything I ended up thinking about on the spot, I just added in “[ ]” even though it’s not actually related to the scene I’m currently working on, but maybe a big-picture thought, or something I want to add or detract from a previous scene. This keeps me from going back to read the previous scenes (and the risk of rereading and editing them). Usually, though, it’s something I want to include later in the current scene.

 

Are you participating in NaNoWriMo?

If so, have you met your NaNoWriMo goals this weekend?

  1. Go Wrimo’s! Love your documentation, looks like you’re progressing well…having scenes! My trouble is shaping characters so as to move the plot forward. Need to write 2011 words to stay on track today. Fiction is challenging…in past I’ve written mostly non-fiction. Good Luck to You! Thanks!

    1. Thanks! Yeah, shaping characters are no joke. Oh, fiction is more challenging than non-fiction? That’s interesting. I’ve never tried non-fiction… maybe someday. Oh, and good luck to you as well! 😊
