List item: Complete NaNoWriMo
Status: 15,487/50,000

A short update from me since Saturday is prime real estate to get some word count in. As of now I am over 15k into my word count meaning that I am now ~31% the way to completing the NaNoWriMo challenge. Which means one thing, a lot of Pepsi Max and not much of my partner.


That’s a lot of progress and it means that, as I stand, I am a day and a bit of where I need to be (with 15,001 being the word count required by the end of tomorrow). It’s still a long way to go with plenty of hours at the computer still to be logged (I say this when there are people on the NaNoWriMo site who have already reached fifty thousand, all I can say is good for you and how nice it must be to not need a full time job).

Writing this has been far more enjoyable that I have expected but I really miss my time with my partner. Another reason why i need to complete NaNo this year so I am not going to put him through it again next year.

As of now the first two chapters have been written as have two in the middle and the final one. Once I have finished the the chapter in the middle I have started (set at Christmas so I am going to be putting on Christmas music much to the perceived horror of my mum) I really need to go back to Chapter 3 and fill in that gap. I’ve got notes on those chapter but… sometimes it’s nice to have those signposts.

If you want to see how I am doing/poke me if you see that I have done no writing in a day you can find my book profile here: How To Be An Imaginary Friend. It’s a working title because the one I wanted already existed. Blergh.
