|My Word Count|
When I set the goal I wondered what this would do to the process. In National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) there's the famous 2nd Week Slump. It still exists for me except I'm now calling it the 10,000 word slump. As I approach that mark, the slump sets in.
I find I'm less willing to have a low count or no count word day. 3200 is harder to make up that 1667.
My process has stayed the same. I still blog, research, post things to Facebook, and use house work when I'm blocked or procrastinating (which might be the same thing).
I like being ahead of the curve (so far) and I like knowing that if I keep up the pace I will finish by, at least, the third week. Then I can use the rest of November to finish the story. And I will get a free and clear Thanksgiving for the first time in 7 years. I'm not sure what the pace will be (or the daily word count goal) when I get to 50,000. Ideally, I'd like to get to 70,000 by the end of the first week in December.
I'll let you know.
