Week 4: 12,526 words... And my first draft of my new novel is DONE!
I'm taking a week off before I'll start editing and re-writing the whole thing in longhand writing (yes, I'm crazy, I know).

Thank you so much for this thread, it's been great for motivation!
Happy writing, everyone!

Just finished day seven for this novel and I'm on 29061 words. A touch over 3k per day.

I edit as I go, so as soon as each chapter is finished I send it out to 40 alpha readers.

Looking for a total of 75k by the end of this month.

I'm winging the plot, after I wrote a 5000 word outline and basically threw it away halfway through day one. I have a terrific system for keeping track of subplots and lining up the next 2-3 scenes to write, and it hasn't let me down yet.

4k today, and because I'm slighty over my 3k each day, my new daily target has gone down to 2700. Love it when that happens! It encourages me to put more effort in, until I only *have* to write ~1500 per day.

No words today, but a ton of research - enough to create another book with about 150 pages for a companion .. so that was good and it will help a lot in writing my current series!!

2600 yesterday. I'm trying for 3k each writing day of NaNo, so didn't quite make it yesterday. On the other hand, I wrote quite a lot in Korean, so maybe I can count those words for double, since they're much harder  :icon_think: :icon_rofl:

Hopefully, today will be better!

i'm sitting at just under 14,500 words for the first six days of NaNoWriMo, so I guess that puts me at about 2400 words per day. Shooting for 70K during this challenge. Working on what I think will be a cracker of a horror that will be a good companion to Beware The Boogerman.

13, 500 NaNoWriMo words for me, so far--2500 of them today. I'll probably stop for the day now, but I'm still hoping to bring my average back up to 3k per day again by the end of the week.  :banana-riding-llama-smiley-em

I'm going for 70k as well--and that title made me snort-laugh, so thanks for that  :roll:

Ug, I started out adding 2k to one book, added another 1k to another (which I promptly deleted then wrote 500 more, which I let stay) and then rewrote about 9k words in another, changing that book from 3rd person to 1st person because I liked the way it flowed better ... I don't really know what that averages out too!  :dizzy  Does anyone else have days like this?!?

For me to hit my writing goals this year, I have to write 1300 words a day. Right now, I'm at 27,000 for the year, so I'm about 8 days ahead of the curve. As for today, I'm only at 700. Going to grab a late night snack before banging out the 800 I need to meet my daily goal and going to bed.
