NaNoWriMo: Log Three

Seventeen days into November, and I can say confidently that I am not going to write 50,000 words in the next two weeks, I’d be impressed if I even made it to 25,000. Disappointing nobody but myself, I realize now that any free time I do have, I split up between television, Nintendo 3DS games, internet distractions, and gym stuff. If I had fully committed all my free time to writing, I probably could have accomplished the whole 50,000 – but for now, I’m moving the goal posts to a very, very low 10,000 – and maybe I’ll make 25,000 revised by the end of 2013.

Next year, I’ll have to keep in mind that NaNoWriMo is about writing in quantity, and writing right out of the gate. This, “write a few hundred words every day” approach I’ve taken does not result in a 50,000 novel. Maybe if I’m lucky though, I could end up with a 10,000 short story…
