Day 1 goal: 1,667 words 😦
Goal to date: 1,667 words
50,000 words doesn’t seem so daunting. Until you do the math and realize it’s 1,667 words per day. And I didn’t write yesterday until about 9pm at night. So I haven’t quite met the daily goal. Whoops.
I’ve decided not to post anything until NaNoWriMo is over and my novel is done. You’ll see why later.
Back to the novel. I have to confess, I had about 200 words of my novel written prior to November 1st – a bit of the start and a bit of the middle. I counted them in the total anyways, and I don’t consider it cheating since both parts will be worked on this month. need to be rewritten. I also don’t write in a linear way. Yesterday, I wrote much of chapter one, and the last half of the last chapter. I had an idea for exactly how I wanted the novel to end so I wrote it. I’m sure today I’ll write part of the middle or something and it will all join up eventually. I’m just kind of like that. That’s part of why I’m not posting anything. It wouldn’t make sense for me to post what I’ve written since they’re sort of messed up bits and pieces.
The other part is that I still don’t have names for everything. Right now, I have a Country Y in my novel. I hate naming things, it drives me crazy. I know names are important and many of them make the novel. But I hate doing it and one day, I’m going to write a novel with all the people and countries as numbers. Hah. So there.
Anyway, I should get started writing or something. I’m pretty sure I’ve written more words in blog posts and draft posts over at Go Fork Go! for veganmofo than I have of my novel so far. It’s so much easier to write about what I’ve cooked since it’s a “been there and done that” kind of thing rather than a “make up random shit” kind of thing.
