Five Days…10k

So…the first few days of NaNoWriMo have gone well: I’m closing on 10k words today, which is slightly ahead of target (but will help me on my ‘non-writing days’). I’m finding the little word calculator a great motivator – I go in every day and check out my progress, I can’t explain why it feels more productive seeing it with the little progress stats beneath it, but it does! 🙂

The idea of just writing, writing, writing, without pausing to go back and edit is quite satisfying as you’re whizzing through a new chapter every other day. I normally find myself going back through previous chapters, editing and re-working them before dropping back into the writing, which probably wastes a lot of time…so maybe this will be a habit that sticks after November…we’ll have to see 🙂
