It’s the last seven days of Nano. I’m within 10,000 words of completion. The Nano website says that I can do it, but so far every week this month I’ve had 1-2 days were there was simply no time to write. I’ve been making up the loss at weekend write ins (Hurray for the Sterling! I get about twice my usual word count when I use a typewriter), but with the holiday I don’t know if I’ll make it to one.
I’ve also outwritten my outline. I’ve gone from having a general layout of each chapter and scene to a one sentence summary of the entire chapter, and some of them are as vague as “this would be a good time for a kidnapping.”
My goal is 2,000 words per day.
Stand back. I’m goin’ in.
