40007 / 50000 words. 80% done!

This update needed one of those nifty counters, so here we go! I'm on the last stretch now. I am attempting to finish this thing on Sunday (today!) so even though I am not at the Night of Writing Dangerously, I can at least finish on the night. And when I do, I am going to invest in one of those spiffy Viking hats. Must. Have. Viking. Hat! And then I'll wear it to further write-ins because I will still be going to those even when I'm finished. I am trying to write a whole lot more before the end of November. I am in a year challenge and for most of it I slacked off in it. I have nearly 141,000 more words to write after I complete my NaNo. So I'll be attempting to write another 50,000 words in the last days before the 30th. Wouldn't that be something? I would be pretty stoked about that. I can do it. I can so do it. Especially because I have a lot of writing projects to work into it. And I am counting my journal entries too. How meta is it that I am talking about it here? Heh. I need to check my steps because I need to get to those too. December is going to be plenty rough on me since I haven't been using my pedometer.

I'm not happy with my plot, but I am getting it down on paper. I think it has potential. When I revise--and I will revise this one--I am going to rework the style. I have been writing from one character's point of view during each day of November. Instead, I am going to write shorter passages for each character on each day, or the important days in their lives. There is a lot of potential here even if it hasn't been realized yet. I will also be revising my short story collection, which takes place before this piece. I am intent on getting that published next year.

Beginning today, to get my 250k words and 1million steps, I need to average the following:

Averaging 3683 words a day
Averaging 7413 steps a day

It's time to really get myself into shape with words and steps. I've been letting myself slack for too long. Gotta get more sleep, write more, and walk more. I hope this really sparks some things up. I'll start on this new regiment today.


I'm borrowing this from my friend [livejournal.com profile] myras_girls. Thank you!

[livejournal.com profile] geonncannon and his brilliant writer mind (I am SO excited about the Sanctuary/Warehouse 13 drabble he is doing for me. I cannot tell you how much I am looking forward to this. Helen/Tesla/HG Wells. It is going to be fucking epic!) (Geonn--I hope you know I completely trust your writing skills) Seriously folks. You need to read this guy. He's a published writer and everything! :D Utter brilliance.))
RPing...Oh yeah. :D

All that matters is that I got my needed word count and then some: 2862. Woo. Almost 1200 more to the number. Will edit later for a full report of Day 1.

Off to sleep now. I'm beat.
