NaNoWriMo: Week 2

Week two of NaNoWriMo is over.  Although the writing came a little harder this week, I managed to stay on pace and power through to the one-quarter point of my novel.  I’m getting close to finishing the first act of the story, and most of the principle players and conflicts are in place.  Unfortunaly, I can already see several holes in what I have written, and I’ll need to fix these during revision, but overall I happy with the state of things.  Of course, NaNoWriMo is about the words, so here’s an update on my word count for the second week:

Nov 8—1,817 words
Nov 9—1,763 words
Nov 10—620 words
Nov 11—1,949 words
Nov 12—1,993 words
Nov 13—1,711 words
Nov 14—1,851 words
Week 2—11,704 words
Total words— 25,010 words

My average pace as dropped from week one, but I’m still on pace to write 53,592 words by the end of the month.  While I had my doubts at the start, I’m now fairly confident I’ll meet my target.  But enough basking in my promising progress, it’s time to get back to work.
