NaNoWriMo shoutout: 20K reached!

NaNoWriMo update
Todays word count: 2,320
Total words: 20,215

I've reached twenty thousand words! That is forty percent of the way through or two fifths if you prefer fractions. I only need another five thousand words to get to the half way point.

I'm starting to get some momentum going in the plot. My hero has been attacked and defended himself and, well, maybe that's enough for now. Part of me wants to share what I've got but another part of me knows it is just not ready. I am thinking that I'd like to put the first ten thousand words up on Authonomy but I will want to at least have a sense check and quick edit before I do.

How is life out there in NaNo land? Any stories to share?

How about your other goals? This experience is a real game changer. So many goals can be broken down into daily targets. Doesn't matter whether you are building something; repairing something; creating or even cleaning - if you set a target and work at it each day - you can achieve your goal.


  1. OK - so you've got about double the amount of words I've reached. But I'm still going!

  2. Go Ruby!
