NaNoWriMo is Real!

This month's challenge is to see how many words I can write in a single day without too much compelte gibberish! Today, it was 12,000. I meant to do 10,000 but overshot my mark. It's probably just as well, since NaNoWri-type challenges exacerbate my naturally-occuring yammerphilia. I am not going to try to top that tomorrow, as I am now behind on some important deadlines in Real Life. Also, my "novel" is going to be 100,000 words of easily distracted character introduction, apparently. Well, next week will be better. My plan is to hit my word goal early and then make some kind of shape or frame and then just try to plaster all the words to it or something; I don't know how this works.

Oho! Sounds like you're doing great so far! Will you be posting your novel here or on AO3? :D

Hm. Probably neither? It's hard to say at this point. Nano is a good motivator for producing a giant pile of words, which I need because I'm lazy about writing, but I'll probably need some additional motivators to get it into the kind of shape where I'd want anyone to actually look at it. We'll see what happens!

Also, I love your icon!

Wow, congratulations! My progress is more modest, but as long as I get a few hundred words more done today, I won't be falling behind the expected phase. That's already good. And I have time to write plenty in the weekend, then I want to get ahead for a while, since the story is only starting to pick up. I have a tendency to spend a lot of time gathering steam in the first draft...
