I now have over 50,000 words for my book. That means I’m half-way there assuming an end of 100k. Feeling accomplished, but moving forward. It’s a good possibility that I will not be making the 50k word count for NaNoWriMo(Writing in month of November only). But, I have no doubt I will exceed 10k words for the month and hopefully crack the 15k mark. Sadly, even that is still 35k short. But, who knows, maybe I will have a bout of inspiration and still finish it by the 30th. I have found that while I have to push myself and write all day and night just to get close to 2000 words, what I am getting down is pretty good stuff. It needs editing, but it’s at least manageable. In the end, it’s not a race for me to finish my book, as I am looking to make this my career. I still would like to have the first draft done or near done by the end of the year, so any encouragement people can give me along the way is much appreciated.
