NaNo2017 Week 2

04 November

NaNoWriMo Target: 6,667

Words Written: 10,003

Wrote 4,881 words and finished chapter 3. It’s not quite 5k, but it’s close enough. Made a $10 donation and now I’ve got a spiffy halo on my avatar.

05 November

NaNoWriMo Target: 8,333

Words Written: 10,504

Wrote 501 words. Taking a bit of a break today to get some outlining and plotting done, since I wrote so much yesterday. I also decided on what direction chapter 4’s going to go in. There are some new characters and plot points to introduce, and this is a good enough point as any other.

06 November

NaNoWriMo Target: 10,000

Words Written: 10,790

Wrote 286 words. Totally wanted to get to 11,667, but things came up.

07 November

NaNoWriMo Target: 11,667

Words Written: 11,672

Wrote 882 words. Very close to being done with chapter 4, but I feel like I’m hitting the week two blues a bit early.

08 November

NaNoWriMo Target: 13,333

Words Written: 12,701

Wrote 1,029 words. I did finish chapter 4, and now that I’m back to my main characters, I’m feeling a bit better about things.

09 November

NaNoWriMo Target: 15,000

Words Written: 14,045

Wrote 1,344 words. I’m getting caught up, slowly.

10 November

NaNoWriMo Target: 16,667

Words Written: 15,734

Wrote 1,689. Finished chapter 5.


I’m a little under 1k behind, which isn’t too bad. A couple of 2k days will get me caught up. Plotwise, I’m right on track. It actually feels like I’m behind since I only have 5 chapters and 15.k words, and I usually have 2k words to a chapter. But I’ve never written a script for NaNo, either – just prose novels – so that may be part of the weirdness.
