NaNoWriMo ’11: Plugging Away

NaNoWriMo Word Count:  30,923
Daily Average:   1,405
Words to Go:   19,077


I don’t know what’s weirder, seeing more than 30,000 words written or seeing less than 20,000 words to go.  It feels real now.  It feels like I’m going to finish.

Today will be the real test.  Had to run to the bank, the doctor, and the mechanic, the last one unexpectedly, so this day has been a total loss so far.  But I’ve had some really productive late evenings lately.  9:00 will roll around and I’ll only be at 300 words or so and feeling like this novel is a hopeless mess that will never be finished.  Then I buckle down and it’s 11:30 and I’ve got 2,000 words done, and suddenly this novel is a hopeless mess than might actually get done on time.

I do feel like I’ve set the climax up too soon though.  I have to find a way to postpone things without looking like I’m treading water.  Maybe I’ll have another man walk into another room with another gun.
