A progress report from my first Nanowrimo novel

While I had my journals out, I did a detailed word count of my 2002 Nanowrimo novel according to my paper journal.

17 Nov, morning: 12372
18 Nov, afternoon: 14000+ (notes: “I don’t remember the exact amount, but it’s over 14,000.” Also, “10,000 words behind! Ack!” Actually, more than that.)
19 Nov, 1:15pm: 15531 (Note: This was when the thought to quit passed my mind. It is a very good thing I didn’t.)
20 Nov, morning: 16344
22 Nov, morning: 16344
24 Nov, evening: 17307
1 Dec: 50037

And I didn’t write in the paper journal during the last week because I was writing. If I could find the post with my old blog’s word counts (specifically during the last week), I’d update that, but I can’t, so this will have to stay as is.

This is why you should never give up.
