NaNoWriMo Day 15

The Words: 3859 words total for the day.

I took advantage of a quiet, lazy Sunday afternoon to do several word sprints with @NaNoWordSprints on Twitter. I almost stopped at 3200 words, which was enough for the day anyway, but decided to push it for one more sprint.

The Story: Things are not looking good for the prisoner, who has been locked up for a few months now. Now he’s questioning his sanity and the benevolence of someone he met in prison.

This storyline is almost done–I’m guessing I’ll finish it tomorrow or Tuesday, at the latest. Today is the halfway point of the month, but I’m sure I’m more than halfway through the story, since the last 2 storylines will be closer to the length of this one (which is just under 12,000 words right now) than the first storyline (which ended with 30,000 words). So it may be time to cap my word counts at a lower number from now on.

Total word count: 43,070

    • I’m not terribly good at estimating how long a finished draft will be, so I went with what I hoped it would be, given my final plan for this book, and started this month with a final goal of 75,000 words (2500 per day). But as the month goes on, I re-evaluate often, raising or lowering my daily goal, which I’d let go as high as 3500 until yesterday. I’ll probably go back to 2500 now.
