Nanowrimo – it’s half time

November 15th – Nanowrimo has officially hit the mid point.  So how is everyone doing on their word count?  I’m over the 17,000 point, which makes me feel good, but at the same time, I know I should be at 25,000. 

I’m sure we’re all feeling the difficulty surrounding having to churn out 1667 words every day.  I know that some days I churned out less than 500, but other days my creative spurts took me well over 2000.

My strategy for the second leg of this race is not to concern myself with word count anymore.  Instead, I’m going to let my characters tell their story, no matter how good or bad it is, and see what happens.  If I make the 50,000 words, great.  If not, I’ve still written more this month than last month and hopefully, even with the holidays approaching, I’ll write more next month than my usual December output.

This first time Nanowrimo participant highly recommends this challenge and plans to enlist again next year.
