NaNoWriMo -- Week Two

As promised, here's my update after two weeks in National Novel Writing Month:

  • 22,491 words
  • Daily average of 1,606
  • 27,509 words remaining to reach 50,000
I've been able to write each day, as much as 1,900 words and a couple days around 1,300. I should be averaging 1,667 so I'm a little behind that goal. I had some things going on that took me away from spending more time writing. 

But I have confidence in reaching 50k words or more. I've picked up my pace the past couple of days as I'm in a pretty good groove. In other words, the story is taking shape and the characters are coming to life. 

Still, there's a lot of writing to be done, but I feel like I'm up to the challenge. I hope others participating in this annual event are making progress as well. 

As a minister I know once told his congregation: "You have to keep on keeping on."

In other words, don't give up. Set your sights on the goals you want to achieve and stay on course until you get there.

Until the next time...
