We’re just slightly more than halfway through NaNoWriMo. If I were actually going for the 50K mark, then I should have at least 25,000 words by now. Good thing I’m not, then, because as of this writing I’ve got just slightly over 16,000 words on the mystery draft. My aim for the month is at least 35K (roughly the half-way mark for this draft), which means I’m still about a 1500 words behind. I’m hoping to be able to make up ground this week.
Of course, if I were able to add freelance articles, e-mails and blog posts to my word count, I’d be well ahead. Oh well.
I was hoping to be able to reveal what the mystery novel is by this point, but that announcement’s still a little way off. But it’s coming. *knock on wood*
Back to the salt mines…
