Instead of posting Nano metrics yesterday, I opted for this (shockingly popular) post about GEB. But fear not, I did write . . . though it wasn’t remotely an amount worthy of a post unto itself. Anyway, here’s today’s status:
Words Written: 4,493 (total for the last two days)
Total Word Count: 16,613 words
I think the total more than makes up for my rather pathetic few hundred words of yesterday. Moreover I had a bit of an epiphany today after going to the Write In at Bruegger’s in how better to tell the story. I won’t even attempt to translate it to text, but I did rework an outline to organize my thoughts and I noticed a marked improvement in the flow of words. In fact were it not for the fact that my left wrist is bothering me something awful, I would have easily written a few thousand more words today.
Even better, for you curious folk, I have finished a section that I feel worthy of posting . . . but I’m going to hold out for a day where I don’t have anything else to post here
because I’m hoping to get through my 30 days of daily posting. I know, I’m such a tease, but if it’s any consolation it’s just as likely — now that I don’t hate every word I’m writing — that I’ll have other snippets to share in the near future.
Anyway, in non-noveling news I was recently alerted to the fact that there is still a LiveJournal syndicated feed in existence for those of you on LJ who wish to see me on your friends list. (I would like to note that unless you comment here I will not see them. So make sure to click the “Comments: [#]” link and not the one that brings you to the reply function on LJ.)
