NaNo Update [Nov. 2nd, 2007|01:19 pm]
Nicodemus
Day 1
The website is pretty much rolling over and dying, kicking its little rack casters in the air. Sympathies and apologies to anyone else trying this. It does get better after the first couple days.

On weekdays, I'm sticking to only writing while on my ferry commute. I still managed 1,661 words in the first day.

Day 2
The website is better but still pretty sucky on response times.

So far today, I'm up to 2,581 words. It's a pretty fast start but I suspect I'll run into trouble down the road. The first third of the story is pretty well worked out; the middle is sketched in; the last third is unformed and piecemeal. This is really bad for me since I like to write with a clear vision of what "the whole" should be. Every element fits into the larger picture. And my larger picture is still very fuzzy...

My roomie is doing it again this year and he's at 6264 today. I will probably try next year. I was going to sign up, but had to put it on hold due to bad health.
Good luck!

Wow, he's storming along! Kudos to him. I hope to join you next year (with a more serious effort on my part, too).

The goal is 10,000 words, right? Have fun! *hug*

Yep, it's 50K. That works out to 1,667 words per day, incidentally. (That really doesn't seem like a big number until you try to write that much continuous fiction text.)
