About midway through the month. Time for an update. [Nanowrimo.org]
Going into the month I didn’t want to start a new project with several in the pressing category.
So I picked two of stories that I want to finish ASAP: Dragon Rider 11th Grade and Organization Mission 10. Both of the stories were started prior to the month. I was at 49k of ~70k words in Mission 10 and 12k/100+k in 11th Grade.
Between the two, I can easily surpass 100k if I pushed. But both of these stories have been fighting me. There are so many threads being weaved since both are midbooks of a series. Dragon Rider 12th is the last book, so I need to make sure everything is set up for it. A lot happens. Mission 10 is like midway of midway. I have so many plot points before and after to go. And the slog of middle can be difficult.
Currently my stats as of 9:20am Nov 13th:
Total Nano count: 29,213 words
DR 11th Grade count: 16,878 (Leaving more than 70k)
Mission 10 count: 12,335 (Leaving about 10k left to go)
I have plenty of room to give. I should finish off Mission 10. I’ll try to focus on Dragon Rider after that point (it’s my more important series), but I may switch out for Mission 11, Secret of Luna, Secret of Search, Genie Wishes, or Lycacon.
If you have a preference or suggestion, let me know. I still have a lot of words to write. And hopefully I have more good days like Monday where I surpassed my 7k desired daily goal. I was healthy. Weekends I never hit the mark, but on a healthy weekday, 7k is a reasonable goal for me. I want more of them.
