If Only Nanowrimo Lasted One Day

Words barfed: 2,211

Percentage of Daily Goal:  132.7%

If I wrote this much everyday, I’d finish in: 22.6 Days

Likliehood of me writing this much in a day again: 3%

Dare I say that was easy?

For some magical and happy reason, I was able to write with abandon. If a word didn’t come to me quickly enough, I simply moved on with a less-than-perfect substitute. I didn’t correct myself, bother with spelling, or anything. I must pray that the writing demon who possessed my body last night comes again.

It was a promising start… but I just have to make sure overachievement won’t provide the excuses to underachieve.

Time to go check on how ya’ll did…

    I’ve written a grand total of 667 words so far. Might you be willing to lend me (ahem, give me) some of yours? 🙂 Of course, I’d just as happily settle for borrowing that writing demon for the rest of the month…

      I would, if I didn’t know myself as well as I do, and how badly I would need them. Likewise for my demon… however, I will see what I can do to get him to “spawn”, or whatever they do.

    I managed 1753 words yesterday. It took me four hours. It’s 5pm over here and I haven’t started writing. This whole “self-willpower” thing really isn’t working for me. >.<

    Good man! Now, I expect you to have passed 4000 words by next update 😉 If you’ve reached 5000 I might even send you some cookies. Or chocolate. Your choice.
    I have now reached 1956 words. Which means I’ve written about twice as much today as yesterday, and I’m not about to stop any time soon. Hopefully I’ll get back on track before the day is over, though I might have to shoot Hubby to succeed. It appears I can’t concentrate with good music playing in the background. Makes me sing. And that sort of multitasking is beyond me. Now I’m gonna switch off the internet and stop procrastinating.. (Yeah, right!)

    Wow – good for you! I managed 1,799 in a couple of hours last night. Just got home here and it’s almost bedtime, but I will write for an hour or so and see where I get. Sometimes the words flow; and sometimes they don’t. C’est la vie!!

    I am loathing every. freaking. second of this, but I’ll be damned if I’m going to quit. I am up to 8610 on day 4, a whole day ahead to give me some wiggle room. My anxiety is OFF THE CHAIN. More wine, I think…

        LOL! Thanks 🙂 When you’re old and neurotic like me… and remember, I’m writing nonfiction, so I should probably have double the word requirement since I can’t get stuck on “what happens now?”
