Day 5: 8 November 2022
For this year’s NaNoWriMo, I’ll be writing for 22 days in November. This gives me a daily target of 2,273 words, which will be about 2 chapters per day.
I ran out of time on Monday, so didn’t do my daily quota on NaNo. That means that Day 5 was a day late. I’m not overly worried, though, because I’m still only around 382 words behind normal NaNo schedule. If I can show up every day now for the rest of the week, I should easily be able to catch up with that.
The book is coming along. I’m tweaking previous chapters as I’m doing the read-through to remind me what I wrote last time. But the chapters are shorter again, as I don’t want to repeat everything and the chapter exercises are all pretty much the same already but with different specifics. (The book is about who/where, so character and location, and I’m still on characters for the main part.)
I wrote 2,743 words against a daily 2,273 target.
Day 1 = 3,706 words.
Day 2 = 2,508 words.
Day 3 = 2,585 words.
Day 4 = 1,412 words.
Day 5 = 2,743 words.
I’ll be posting (week)daily updates, with Diary of a Tiger moving to a weekly Saturday post for the duration of this year’s NaNo.
