Day 2 began with about a thousand or so words written between midnight and 1:30. Pre-planning here, folks, since I have work tonight and won’t be here to write during the day. Granted, I didn’t write straight through. I took mini-breaks to check Twitter, read the NaNo forums (fascinating, as always), and watch Mr. Knightley being awesome (YouTube).
I got up to a word count of 3,130 words. Day 2’s goal word count is 3,333. So, as of now, I have written 1,077 words today.
I love all of NaNoWriMo’s charts and graphs that tell me how much to write. If I could write with NaNo all year long, it would kick my ass into high gear.
I’m really aiming more for 80,000 words rather than the 50,000 required. 80,000 words would actually finish my novel.
And so far, Buzzy (my Inner Editor) has been behaving herself. I’m finding that writing something I’ve been working on is not actually slowing me down at all. It’s making me consider new scenes and think of my characters in a different way. I promise, it’ll be better than last year’s NaNo.
All right, it’s 12:30 PM and I’ve passed Daily Word Count, but have not written 1,667 words today. This is because I started ahead yesterday.
And it is 12:48 PM and I have finished the 1,667 words, topping out at 3753 for Day Two.
