My NaNoWriMo stats, as of Day 3:
Chapters outlined: 11
Chapters completed: 2
Total words so far: 4,176
Percent to goal: 8%
Words left to write: 45,824
My goal has been to write 2,000 words a day, and I have hit that on both Day 1 and Day 2. I am completely in love with this book so far, but I haven’t yet gotten to the hard part (the quasi-paranormal, solve-a-mystery section). My protagonist, Winter Beringer, is super fun to write, and I’ve already got a crush on her eventual love interest. However, as my screenwriting teacher stressed, I’m going to “make the bitch suffer” before she gets her happy ending. So, ticket for one on the train to Angst City, please!
I didn’t get much done this morning before work (only 170 words, alas), so I have a long way to go tonight. I’m thinking of possibly lugging the laptop with me and stopping by a coffee shop on the way home to write a little bit. We’ll see.
How are you guys doing?
