I have just passed the 50,000 word mark of words written since November 1st. Although I haven’t been a participant in NaNoWriMo, doing write-ins or chatting to ‘writing buddies’, even getting any writing buddies, it has provided the discipline I need to keep at it.
The daily word target has been 1666, which seemed daunting at first but I’ve been keeping to it, and overtaking it this last week. Since I started with 19,000 words already written, I now have almost 70,000 words towards my WIP which is a great start. I’ve no idea how far along the story is—the two main protagonists haven’t actually met yet. This could be a long one.
