This is the least favorite part of NaNo. The day before. I just want it to be midnight already!

Re: NaNoWriMo 2011

All right, we're getting closer. Let's try and keep track of stats in this thread. Every time you post, assuming you don't necessarily post every day, tell us your word count and something interesting that happened in your story (and leave it out of context...it'll be more fun!).

Re: NaNoWriMo 2011

I was a lot more exhausted last night than I thought I would be, so I only managed to get 511 words before I passed out. I'm gonna try and do 2000 words today so that I can get ahead.

And I am already off to a bad start at 200 words. Still not quite into the rhythm of my first scene.

This is my first year attempting to participate, but I am up to 4,000 words or so. The site keeps crashing on me.

It'll do that for the first few days. There is always a tremendous amount of traffic, and it's always more than they plan for.

I guess demand drops off after the first week when people fall of the bandwagon.

Re: NaNoWriMo 2011

Phew, day three. Just kicked out 1000 words this morning and I am up to.... 5402. I know they say you shouldn't edit, but I've found myself reading and editing and adding quite a bit every time I finish a block of writing. I'm really, really enjoying it so far. Having the outline has helped, though I've strayed from it a little bit as the story evolves. It's also been helping using my Neo Alphasmart for all of my writing-- I break myself from the internet and only allow myself my phone to look something up for the story (basically to avoid the distractions of say, TrekBBS, Facebook, Gmail, Skype, and a slew of news sites I check compulsively).

How is everyone holding up here on day three! . My goal is to be up to 7000 in the next 12 hours.

I suggest downloading the NaNoWriMo Report Card........

Oh, that is so cool! I somehow looked over that in the forum. I got one that's Selene (Underworld) themed for this year.

I love using these things. I really like it when it estimates when I'll hit 50k.

I'm on day 2 and I've got 4649 done.
