Hi, Holly, my last word count was 32,315. I have written another 2,400 words of a new chapter and need another 2,100 words to complete it. The going is getting tougher and I have practically stopped self-editing at this stage because it takes too much of my creative writing time. Will have to do a detailed self-edit in December. Still going strong and determined to clinch this 50k word count by Nov 30. Glued to my chair and boosting my energy with endless mugs of caffeine! 😀
This year is my first time doing NaNo, and I'm on target. I feel a bit like I'm writing a very detailed outline. What I have is quite a lot of tell with a bit of show. I think that's okay because the detailed outline is helping me figure out which plot points really need to be there, and where foreshadowing needs to be dropped in, etc. Once NaNo is over, I'll be using my notes from Rachael Herron's fab SFoW webinar to edit. She made editing sound exciting.
