I HAVEN’T BEEN BLOGGING about NaNoWriMo, because — frankly — I’ve been too busy actually doing it to write about it. And I really still am, but I figured as we’re close to halfway, I should say something.
My present word count is 18,690 words — new and final draft. As the goal is 50,000 words in 30 days, (1,667 words per day), I am a good ways off the pace. In that sense, I am not satisfied with my production.
However, I have made good, solid progress on refining the ten-year-old, 25,000-word first draft of It’s Dolly’s Birthday into a solid, professional-quality novel. And in that, I am well pleased.
