Daily Tracker


I got a little lucky with NaNo because I had more time than I anticipated in the first four days. The word count is great (I stopped somewhere around 23k today thinking that was it, then realized I could break the halfway mark if I did a slightly longer session so I went for it) and I'm more than happy with it, but I'm only just nearly done with the second part of a seven-story collection, so reaching 50k is probably not the end of it for me. Which. IDEK. *flail*

THE GOOD NEWS is I also set deadlines for finishing parts of the fic, and I'm on schedule for it, if not a bit ahead, so at least I'm still on track for finishing?

THE PROBLEM is I have absolutely nothing for part 3, so I'm probably going to get stalled out a bit there? I'll try to think up plot for it, because as much as possible I would like to write things in order, even though technically each part can stand on its own.

Definitely done writing for the day, though. XD How is everyone else doing? Non-NaNo peeps, are you sick of these updates yet? I'm not going to post too much too often (that's what Twitter is for, har har) so dun worry. XD

Yay! Awesomeness!

And I hear you on having more material than will fit in 50000 words. But at least it's more than enough material instead of not enough.

\o/ And I tend to worry about having enough material to reach the minimum and overshooting, lol, but it's much more preferrable to running out of things to say, I agree.

You're doing an awesome job! At this rate you'll be finished by the weekend! Maybe part 3 will come together once you start writing it? I thought I'd hit a brick wall before now, as I only have like 1 plot point per chapter, but so far my problem has been the opposite and I'm running into really long chapters and all these extra elements of the story I hadn't expected, which I guess is a good problem to have!

Thank you, so are you! LOL finished with the word count maybe, although I do think I'll be returning to a more normal pace this week. XD I HOPE SO. And I still have plot points but I keep altering them slightly by the time I actually get to them? LOL it has been one surprise after another. :P

it's kind of fun not to know how everything's going in advance though! I'm pretty happy with how I've been going, considering I only had like 2 hours to plan before I started! Scrivener is a life-saver, I swear! I'm at a point where I have to add in some wacky hijinks now though, so that might defeat me! The way mine's going I'm expecting it to be about 75-80,000 all up, so if I can stay ahead on word count I'm going to try to finish the whole lot this month. I signed up for [livejournal.com profile] getyourwordsout at the start of the year and I'm still ridiculously down with that too, but I can still make it if I stay on about 2500 a day!

I LOVE SCRIVENER. XD I mean it works with an outline, it'll work without, it's great! Also best compiler everrrrr.

That's awesome! I signed up and then failed, lol, just didn't know WHAT to write. SIGH. :P

IDK TBH. I think it's because I've spent more time writing and just writing? IDK.
