Almost one third into NaNoWriMo and I’m about 5500 words up on my novel. That is about 10,000 words off the NaNo pace, but I’m averaging 600 words a day, which given everything else I have been doing over these nine days is really not too bad. I’m also pretty happy with what those words say. I have characters. I have a plot. I have themes. I even have some quite nice prose going on in places. This is starting to look like a novel!
I’m not expectig to get to 50,000 words, but neither am I rejecting the possibility. But if I can carry on at this pace and quality, I’ll be extremely happy. I may also stop and revise if and when I get to 15,000, as its possible I might have located someone who is actually interested in reading them!
