NaNoWriMo Progress

The month is nearing completion and so is the 50K challenge. I've been a rebel this month. I do not have an official word count on the NaNoWriMo site. However, I have been keeping totals as I go along. I have been writing for the past three days over a thousand words a day. My three day total is 3599 and the month total is 14,845 so far. It's good to have my words back and flowing so well as they have today. With that kind of total I won't be able to claim the 50K prize, but I am getting closer to getting this book finished. Hopefully now I can see completion by Christmas if I can keep up this pace or even make better pace than I have in the past three days. I don't know how much time I will be able to devote to writing tomorrow as I have a busy morning, but I am going to do what I can to increase my word count. So I'm sorry I haven't been around today, but I have been busy with writing and family. Hopefully I will be here more tomorrow. We'll see as I'm also planning to get more writing done. My total word count for the book is 152,635, so I'm doing very well. I would not be surprised at this point to see over 200K on this book by the time it's finished. I will keep you apprised. That is what I've been doing today. How was your day? Thanks for reading.

Congratulations, well done. Just remember though, you lose at least 10% or more with good editing!

I know, and I know there will need to be editing when I get this finished. Thanks.

Unfortunately, I was "out of circulation" most of the day yesterday.

It's good that the writing is going so well. You need to make the most of the good times while they're around - before the muse leaves for parts unknown! :)

Don't I know it. Today isn't a writing day. I had hoped, but I will have time tomorrow.

@DianneN Now that the first holiday is behind me, maybe I can be here a little more, though I do still have a book to finish.

I'm glad you're taking success with your work. Talking instead of me, unfortunately Saturday, December 3, my brother will return from Spain, where he was practically almost all the year 2016! My life will never be the same. And I'll show ....

@just4him I hope so too. Since my brother I know him from 30 years, well now I have a perfect idea of who he is.

So am I, though today was a no write day. I don't consider blogging as serious writing. Sometimes I don't even want to do it, but if I didn't I would miss everyone here so much. So I will continue to blog and interact and hope for a good writing day tomorrow. Though for me it is the day before Thanksgiving and all the prep needs to happen for that. So I don't even know how much I will be here tomorrow.

@just4him yeah, being on here makes me feel better, so I try to make it something I do 4-5 days a week

Yes I am. Now if I were doing the challenge I would be on target and you wouldn't see me for the entire month.

@CoralLevang A few years ago, before I started blogging, I did the challenge and the only time I came up for air was to eat, sleep and use the bathroom. I did quite well that year. I think over 80K words.

Good luck in completing and finishing your book. Day has been fine. Close to 2pm in the afternoon here in Manila. I get off work at 2pm and then I'm off to the gym to do some boxing.

Congratulations, you are doing a great work. I was not around a lot too. The end of the month is approaching, real life calls.

I feel active and great this Monday morning. Good thing I had long hours of sleep last night. Quite busy but tasks are manageable here in the office.
