NaNoWriMo Days 8-9

NaNo day 8: 6135
NaNo day 9: 7572

I spent some time in the library this afternoon, and I got a lot of writing done in the quietness with no internet to distract me. I also had a couple of breakthroughs, adding some fun interactions with some minor characters. The couple has finally met and are about to spend the afternoon together :)

If I were to craft the perfect writing challenge, I think it would be 1000 words per day, five days a week, with an ultimate goal of writing a novel over three months.

You've made progress! :D That's a lot more than I managed yesterday, lol. But I'm working on catching up for the rest of the week and hope to be a little ahead again by the w/end.

I love the idea of your perfect writing challenge. Perhaps you might consider issuing it starting in January, once people have recovered from either winning NaNo or failing it, and once all the holiday rush is over?

I think I'll do a poll, and see when people would like to start, but I'm thinking mid-January to mid-April. Easter is really late next year, but I don't know how that changes school schedules and whatnot.

yay for progress! i think 1000 words a day 5 days a week is a much more reasonable quantity. but i guess the point of nanowrimo is not reasonableness. ;)

Nope, the point is insanity, but I've worked too hard on my sanity this year to give it up all together, LOL.
