NaNoWriMo 2012: Day 26

Words for the Day: 4,052
Total To Date: 64,543
Chapters Written: 26 / 33

This was a strangely productive day. Looking back on how I felt while I was writing, this did not feel easy: the chapters were all new in plot areas I don’t fully understand, but it apparently produced a lot of words pretty quickly. My 8×8 maze tracker is now completely full – I have added some more squares along one side on the one at home.

Apart from filling my tracker, the big news today is that I finished three chapters. I was part way through one yesterday which ended up being in excess of four thousand words, but the other two were both less than 2k in length. With that surge of chapter completion, the average chapter length is now 2,482 words which would project a finished length of 81,919 words. I am guessing I will get another 8 – 10k by end of week, which will put me up around 72 – 74k for the end of the month.

Here are a few random details:

  • MCs #2 & #3 have officially had their plots intersect now.
  • One of the chapters I wrote today was called “A Ridiculous Plot”.
  • Tomorrow we return to visit someone we haven’t seen for a while.
  • I have now used the same name for three different female servant characters.
