NaNoWriMo: Week 3

It was a struggle, but the third week of NaNoWriMo is over.  Surprisingly, I’m still hanging in there—good thing I got ahead of the word count the first two weeks, because my gains were lost last week while I was traveling for the day job.  Here’s a quick update:

Nov 15—840 words
Nov 16—333 words
Nov 17—1,101 words
Nov 18—2,808 words
Nov 19—1,755 words
Nov 20—1,966 words
Nov 21—1,935 words
Week 3—10,738 words
Total words—36,364 words

This puts me on pace for 51,949 words by the end of the month.  Hopefully I’ll be able to pick up the pace down the stretch.  Even if I do, it looks like I won’t get the draft of the novel done by November 30th—there’s simply too much story still to go.  That means I’ll have juggle finishing it along with several back-logged short stories in December.
