One week of NaNoWriMo down

by Jon

It’s been about a week since I once again joined the fast typing, never-say-delete madness that is National Novel Writing Month. As of this morning, I’ve completed 26 of the 110 scenes that I planned out in October. So by that metric I’m 24% complete with Hester and the Kookaburra King.

I’ve been tweeting my progress by scene count at @jonthysell, but for a treat this morning I threw together this quick chart:

I’ve gotten into some good flows over the past few days, but ultimately I can’t but feel like I’m always behind. I’m a notoriously slow typist, and though I’m confident I’ll hit the 50k and win NaNo, my real goal is to finish the book before the end of the month.

Anyway, back to writing!
