Current word count: 1502.
It only took two days for me to realize that I needed National Novel Writing Month to be Personal Novel Writing Year.
To my relief and astonishment, the words are flowing just fine. My pre-writing notes are yielding enough “sourdough starter,” as it were, to keep baking. However, my time is just a bit more fragmented than I had anticipated at the start. I can usually piece together enough time for about 250 words per day, but getting enough for 1667 words per day is impossible on most days.
However: writing 250 words per day, over 365 days, nets 91,250 words. That’s a nice-sized novel.
So the train keeps rolling.
