NaNo Update [Nov. 26th, 2006|09:21 pm]
The Good News: I wrote over 5,500 words today in a concentrated effort to ensure a win as we approach the end of the month. This puts my total at a bit under 47K. (Target, for an average pace, is 43.3K by today.)

The Bad News: The last two words I added were "The End". Crud. Time for padding! Meaningless dream sequences and rambling narrative diversions ahoy!

Newspaper clippings, telegrams, letters and such - make 'em up and quote 'em.

Yep... I already have a little background story going on in cable news broadcasts. I may look for a place to add some more stuff in. (I do like background action gags.)

And here I thought you'd suggest I add werewolves! ;)

Congratulations and my condolences. I'm really implressed that a large number of my friends chose to participate this month.

Is the goal of 47k one set by you or nanowrimo?

To write 50000 words in 30 days, you have to put down 1667 words a day. Multiplying that out gives:

26th day - 43342
27th day - 45009
28th day - 46676
29th day - 48343
30th day - 50010

The goal of all NaNoWriMo participants is 50,000 words of connected fiction.
This page has more info on the event goals, if you're curious.

Go back over it. Chances are you left something out that deserves to be explained in more detail.

Bingo. My plan is to reread/skim through it, looking for places where I left out descriptions or could insert background action or subplots.

Points for the comic. :D
