Challenge: Camp NaNo: Day 29: The Penultimate


April 29

This morning this applied (or the verse about powering through to 40 did), and I went around singing it.

I seriously think this novel is wrapping itself up around 40000 words….  (I’ve written 46215 words towards this NaNo, but the count on the words I’m keeping is actually 40510.)  This could be problematic for NaNo.  Is it against rules to send in a complete draft and the beginning of a second?

Today’s goal: 48333

Total word count: 46215

Day’s word count: 3515

Average daily word count for April: 1595

Words behind the pace: 2118

Words till 50000: 3785

Death count: 2

Total word count towards other projects (including this project, Facebook messages, cover letters, etc.): 32749

Daily word count towards other projects: 360

Average daily word count for other projects: 1191

Cups of tea: 2 caf, 1 decaf

Sugar: 1 bowl of ice cream

Hours spent at work: 6.5

Hours driving: 1.5

What else distracted me: My Little Pony, meeting with my (potentially, hopefully) new landlady, chores, friends

Other campers: Apprentice, Never MasterMore Than One Page

About Kathryn

My love of books has been carefully cultivated by the adults who raised me and also by the friends who love to share. My life has led me down long library shelves, to online forums, fanfiction sites, the front of a lecture hall, and into the desks of college classrooms. With an English degree and a couple master’s classes in Children’s Literature, I am now a bookseller for Barnes & Noble. I have been an editor for Wizarding Life Networks (the people who brought you Wizarding Life, Panem October, and MyHogwarts now HogwartsIsHere).
