NaNoWriMo Progress

National Novel Writing Month. I like the concept, but the execution seems to escape me. And I do appear to work slightly better when under a deadline.

I've fallen behind. I started one story but it wasn't flowing, so I started another. Both seem highly derivative at this point, but might end up less so by the time I'm finished.

Today I've got around 5,500 words, and I should have close to 30,000. I would be more concerned except that last year I got more than 40,000 in the last 15 days of November. I might not make it to 50,000, but I am enjoying the journey.

I hope to get to 10,000 today, and that might actually happen. I'll let you know.

As someone said (I forget who): if you only do 10,000 words in NaNoWriMo, well, you're 10,000 words to the good, right?

Good point.
