November is about halfway over, and Lisa and I are at 68,000 words. Now I’m thinking this is going to be about 120,000 words when finished.
This is, by the way, the most words I’ve ever written on any single work. It alone probably equals or exceeds the number of words in all the short fiction I’ve written this year.
37,000 words so far. Lisa and I are chugging along. This likely will be a 100,000-word novel.
Lisa and I are doing NaNoWriMo this year. We aren’t eligible to win, of course, since we are writing the same novel together, but we figured we’d treat this as an opportunity to get our novel, or at least 50,000 words of it, written down.
Neither of us has ever written anything this long (or in such a short amount of time), but so far it’s going pretty well. It helps that we did a lot of planning for it.
Keep up the good work, fellow NaNoWriMo authors! It doesn’t matter how “bad” that first draft is, just that it’s written.
