NaNoWriMo: National Novel Writing Month - aka 'write 50,000 words in 30 days' - aka 'ARGH AM I INSANE?'

I WON! I WON I WON I WON!!

Yes, this post is ever so slightly delayed - decided to include first 30 minutes of day 23 in day 22 because I was SO close to finishing when it hit midnight. Also wrote more today than any other day this month!

I will still be posting updates daily - the story isn't finished yet, and I'm going to be starting on my [livejournal.com profile] reel_torchwood fic tomorrow now that I do have 50k of original fic.

But yay - I really never thought I would make it. Let alone with 8 days to spare.

Went over to visit [livejournal.com profile] morbid_sparks today and meet her new kitten, so writing time I guess was cut down a bit (for a very good reason!) but still managed to write a decent amount. If I do reeeeeally well tomorrow I might manage to make it to 50k. Hopefully Monday otherwise.

Huge deadline coming up at work, so no chance to write there at the moment. And then it was (and still is!) Children in Need on the telly tonight, so I have been rather distracted. Didn't make 2k, but still made the 'daily pace' count, so not a complete failure. Better tomorrow, I hope!

Another near disaster today. Just couldn't think of what to write at all, so I'm fairly sure today's chapter is even more craptastic than most of the rest of the novel, but it's written, so *shrug*. Still managed to eventually make it to 2000, but only just - was writing right up to the line.

Odd - but brilliant - day today. Didn't get anything written at all at work in my normal '10 minute dash at lunch' slot as was busy writing a presentation all day. Came home, still didn't write anything until about 7pm. And then it all just... went. Highest daily word count of the month so far! And less than 10k to go!

Managed to write much more today than I did yesterday, thankfully. Made up the deficit from yesterday, and I'm back to being five days ahead of pace. Want to get to 50k by early next week, if I can.

Today I knew I wouldn't get much written - left almost as soon as I got in from work to go back out to La Cage. Still wrote something, and am still well ahead, so it's not too bad, I guess.

Today just somehow got very busy, cutting seriously into my planned writing time. So I didn't get as much done as I'd hoped, but I did still make my 2k-a-day... just. I'm still well ahead though, so not panicking yet.

Had a lazy morning, didn't write much, but then this afternoon and evening really went pretty well. Went well over 30k, which I'm very pleased about. Goal HAD been to get to 32k by tomorrow night, but hey, I might be ambitious and try for 35k (since 32k is such an easy target after today).

Today until about 9.30-10pm was another one that looked like it could be a disaster, only about 7-800 words written to that point. And then, once again, that 2k-by-midnight deadline kicked in and I got there :) I'm also officially more than 4 days ahead of the pace, which is nice to know (day 17 pace is 28333)

Nothing really interesting today... managed to write fairly steadily once I got home. I made it past my goal of the day 14 target (23,333) so I'm pretty happy.

Today looked like it might be turning into a disaster - by about 10pm I had still only written about 800 words. And then, somehow, it turned around and just worked out okay!

Work and an evening of badminton with my work colleagues, but I managed to get enough words written to feel happy with myself.

Today didn't go too badly - spent it watching TV from last night on iPlayer - and John's concert DVD, and Family Fortunes... somehow managed to get a fair bit of writing done around that too!

Today just failed, really - didn't get as much writing done this morning as I hoped, and then I spent all afternoon in London for La Cage-ing (see next post for more details on that).

Hopefully better tomorrow!

For some reason my brain didn't much want to cooperate with me and writing today. I guess it thought it got the day off just because it's our birthday. Sorry, brain, it DOESN'T WORK LIKE THAT.

Somehow it came through for me in the end!

Had a bit of a panic when I got home from work today - I'd written several hundred words at lunch and it wouldn't let me download the email I'd sent them back to myself in! Eventually got it though, so panic over...

Much of this evening was taken up with baking my brownies for taking into work tomorrow - who ever came up with the tradition that on your birthday YOU have to take in treats for everyone
