Heavy going today, not to mention very tired but I still managed 1308 words for a grand total of: TAH DAH! 50163 words.

WOOHOO! Finished! WOOHOO!

I don't think I can say much more about the story - it's not what I started with and there are essentially two incompatible versions within the same story. If I re-write it at all, it's going to be almost as big a job again!

Excellent day writing in terms of output - 2117 words - but I suspect fairly incoherent in terms of plot as yesterday's sort-of-rewrite threw me off for a bit. Still, that makes my total now 48855! So close I can almost taste it.

Slightly slower day today - that 'W' thing got in the way. Yep, they pay me and actually expect me to work! Damn it! Still, I managed 1708 words today for a running total of 46738. So close. In addition , I also wrote some notes (only a few hundred words) on another path the story could take - of course that's almost all of what I have already written but that will have to wait until after I have finished NaNo.

Managed another day of writing, almost without a break. I even managed to avoid gardening - always a bonus! Consequently, I managed 2971 words for a running total of 45030. I'm so close I can taste it - slightly sweet with an after-taste of anise!

Good day writing today - nothing to distract and nothing else planned. Consequently, I wrote 3011 words today. That makes the running total 42059 words. Of course, I find myself with a story which is nowhere that I thought it would be but it is still moving which is always good. Another good day writing tomorrow and the back of this should be broken. WOOHOO!

How is that, every time I decide that I won't make a 4am start, the cat throws up? So I made a 4am start again! I managed some writing then and a bit tonight but a little less than I would have liked because I had to go to some end of year (yes, I know it's only mid-November) function - 1545 words. Now I'm just very very very tired!

Courtesy of another 4 am start, I managed 1817 words today. Hard going but I got something out. I'm not sure about another 4 am start tomorrow though - very tired now.

Courtesy of a 4am start today, I got a lot written - 2111 words. After yesterday's big reveal, it was a bit of a grind because I had never really thought about what the reveal did - consequently I think I wrote some really, really bad stuff but there you go! My total is now 37316 words, which is a bit ahead of target so, unless I really dry up soon, I should finish this before the 30th.

A surprisingly good day writing today - 1906 words - but then this was the big reveal that I've had in my head for ages. Mind you, I feel like I've skimped a little on the build-up so I my have to fix that up - IN DECEMBER!

I did just realise that this makes my total 35205 words.

WOOHOO!

If I have a few days of really good word counts, I could even knock this off early!

Didn't get as much done as I wanted - largely because I went down to PAGS tonight - but still ground out 1199 words.
catalyst2: (Default)
Did nothing but write today so I got to a good word count - 3824 words.

WOOHOO!

Of course I have a strong suspicion that most of what I wrote was crap but I will resist the temptation to re-write. Very tired though and my right hand feels like someone stood on it.

The "I'm not getting up at 4 am today" didn't work out so well - the cat was throwing up at 3.30am so, once I cleaned that up, I couldn't go back to sleep so I did some writing. Also, the trip to Freo was a bit of a bust too so we were back by about 3pm - so I did some more writing! Consequence? I managed 1782 words today! WOOHOO!

A combination of sleeping through the alarm at 4 am, a really busy day at work and still feeling tired now meant that my word count was down today - 1364 words today. Not sure what it will be like tomorrow either - I've got a list as long as my arm (which, admittedly isn't that long) to do and I really don't feel like another 4 am start tomorrow - that all adds up to a low word count if I'm not too careful!

Word total today was was 1971. Not bad but I think the 4 am starts are catching up with me because I feel very tired.

There's good news and there's bad news. The bad news is that I messed up the spreadsheet and manged to get my running total wrong. The good news is that I missed a day in the formula somehow so the total went up. Today I managed 2224 words for a total of 23159 words. I'm happy with that. I'm not so happy with the 4am starts but that's NaNo for you!

Courtesy of a 4am start and then finishing work early today (and nothing decent on TV tonight), I manged 2713 words today. WOOHOO! Better still, after yesterday's grind, this was a lot more pleasant too - not easier, mind you, just more pleasant! At 19236 words, I'm quite happy with that count. Just a bit tired now though!

Well, I got to target today (and a little over) - 1815 words - but that wasn't fun at all. That was just a hard unpleasant grind. Still, my total is 16523 and we are a third of the way through so that's all good. I hope tomorrow's is a little more pleasant to get out there.

Because I had to go to Freo today, I didn't get as much writing done as I would have liked, but still got 983 words out. Also very tired so I'm really going to have to call it a day.

Great day writing today - even started early (6am on a Saturday!) and got lunch made for me so I didn't even have to leave the laptop. Also, having got through that transition yesterday, it feels like a big hurdle has been cleared and a whole lot of new ideas came flowing out. The next time I get stuck like that, I must remember to use notes to get past the bottleneck and then move on.

Total is now 13725, about 2000 ahead of target - which is just as well because I have got to go to Freo for most of tomorrow so I'm not likely to get too much writing done.

1971 words today! WOOHOO!

Of course not much of it makes that much sense but at this point, I'm OK with that. There's a transition in there that I just cannot get right (or interesting) so I've just done a bare-bones-to-be-filled-in-later sketch to cover it. Now I have a whole weekend with nothing much planned (except this, of course) so I might be abe to get out some good word counts that get me a little ahead.
