I found a new wordcount meter!

4471 / 50000 words. 9% done!

The goal for today is 5,000 words, which should at the very least help me to finish this scene.

I also have to go vote in a moment. Fleh.

Has it really been three months since I last updated? Yikes!

I am, once again, participating in NaNoWriMo this year. I haven't been doing the daily updates I did last November, and I'm not sure that I'll be posting my novel here either. It's not about zombies, for one thing, so I doubt there would be much reader interest locally. ;)

However, I have been plugging away steadily at the novel, although today I appear to have been felled by the Death Plague™ that afflicted both [ profile] baronscartop and [ profile] ai731 last week, which I fear will not help word count today. Also, I have cleaning to do in this apartment, and it ain't going to do itself.

In any event, I think it's time I resurrected Ye Olde Wordcounte Meter:


Nope, wordcount meter is down for the count this NaNo, and while they helpfully provided the code for it, I am not internet-savvy enough to be able to use it. Oh well.

Current wordcount: 31,627

What a ride it's been this year! Holy cow!

My apologies for the spam today. Since I last posted I think I wrote about 20,000 more words, and while I toyed with the idea of just posting a few at a time over the next few days, I decided not to in the end. I'm starting a new job on Monday, and so I want to leave nothing to chance.

In a final, desperate, last-ditch sprint to the finish line today, I produced a little under 10,000 words (many thanks to everyone who cheered me on, especially [ profile] tcaptain who came to my mini writing-jam today at Central Station to be my personal cheering squad, and who got an extra two or three thousand words out of the exercise himself!), and hit 100,000 words just before 7pm.

I am quite pleased. The novel is not quite finished. I estimate another 20,000 words or so before I can properly wrap it up. Also, the last section is going to need a lot of revision. I'm not nearly as happy with it as I was with the first two, for reasons which I know and understand. I'm going to finish it up, let it sit idle for a week or so, and then come back and do some major re-working. I already think I know how I can "fix" what's wrong with it, or at least what I find unsatisfactory. Please feel free to prod me if you don't see me adding to the novel in the next week to ten days. I really want to finish this one. I think it's a keeper.

Right now, though, I'm going to rest on my laurels for a little bit, and bask in the glory of having written mad amounts of words this month. Again, my thanks to my beloved readers and all the other NaNo participants who cheered me on from the very start and kept an eye on my sanity at the same time. Many, many thanks. You guys are all awesome.

And now, for the wordcount meter, purple just for today in honour of NaNoWriMo (okay, the site claims it's pink, but it looks purple to me, and that's good enough):
