NaNo 2017 – Day 28 – Rollercoaster

I was on a definite high on day 27. Day 28…not quite so much. I’m definitely feeling the effects of pushing everything (including sleep) off to hit my word count goals every day.

I managed to get my 2,000 in but I’m not sure I love what I wrote. That’s okay. I need to write it in order to have something to edit, right?

Number of Words for the Day:  2,024 words

How I Hit my Word Total for the Day

I had a book signing so I didn’t get started until about 8:45. Wrote straight through.

Today’s Goal: 2,000 words

I have another meeting tonight. It means leaving the house shortly after I get home from work. I’ve been promised the meeting won’t go more than an hour or so. If that turns out to be true, I might get to start writing by 8 PM. We shall see.

Number of Words to Date: 62,462 words

One of the reasons I wasn’t happy with my writing last night is because it was a lead up chapter. Not much happened except for my characters preparing for the final battle, so to speak. It also because very clear to me that I need to get the show on the road. I have about 10,000 words to finish the book up which isn’t much considering what I still have to do.

Tonight’s writing will see a great deal more movement in the story. I have hinted at some new characters who will show up tonight, I think. Everything leading up to this point will start to become clear.

At least, that’s the hope. If it comes to pass, I will likely wrap up the story over the weekend. A little past the end of November, but still within striking range.

If I manage to keep up my progress I should finish November with 66 – 67,000 words. My best NaNoWriMo yet.
