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

And so we come to the end. I really didn't get a lot written today as I spent a lot of it catching up on TV from the weekend and reading the script I have of the film I'm using for my reel-tw fic. I do have a pretty good idea of where the rest of this fic is going now.

But I did do the important thing, and reached the target of 60k that I set for myself when I made it to 50k last week.

In the end, I had a great time over the month, and I discovered that I can write a heck of a lot more than I ever thought I could in a month! Until this month, a day where I wrote 600 words was a 'good' writing day. After doing this, well, I considered today a 'bad' day and I wrote over 1000.

I proved to myself that I could do it, and I WON! I haven't decided yet if the original fic will be edited and eventually posted or not - if it IS ever posted it will be on a limited filter on my flist.
As expected, I have written nothing the last 2 days. Left reeeeally early both mornings for Collectormania: London, got back very late Saturday after going straight from there to Avenue Q, and have just been having dinner with my sister etc this evening.

I can still write enough tomorrow to make 60k though.

And it was worth it for all the hugs I got in my photoshoots this weekend :)

Today was the end of a very long week, so I'm actually a little amazed I got as much writing done as I did even. And of course, STILL working out the actual plot details of reel_tw fic. Won't get any writing done whatsoever tomorrow, as am quite literally out all day. But should still be okay to meet my 60k-by-midnight-on-30th target :)

Somehow I managed to waste a lot of time doing goodness knows what this evening, and didn't get nearly as much written as I'd like. Hence I'm counting the bit of time I wrote past midnight as being day 26, just to feel a bit better about my wordcount - I do usually stop writing at midnight, but...

I think I'd forgotten how much harder it is to write a lot of words in a day when I'm writing something that I DO actually intend people to read! Plus I'm still working out a lot of my plot for my reel_torchwood fic, deciding which bits of the movie to emulate and which bits to leave out altogether, etc...

Still, I wrote more than the daily target, so that's all okay in the end...

Writing went pretty well today, even with stress from work this morning and a tennis match to watch.

And literally just before midnight, I finished my original fic! It's all done - yes, I finally figured out an ending!

Rest of November will now just be working on my [livejournal.com profile] reel_torchwood fic! (Which yes is going to count towards my NaNo total, it's November still after all. But I feel justified in that my original novel IS over 50k on its own.)

I've been really stressed today by work, cos I have a huge presentation tomorrow morning, and I was pretty tired too - combined with the fact that I knew I had already reached the 50k, my brain wasn't really so motivated to write a lot today.

But on the plus side, I got a start made on my [livejournal.com profile] reel_torchwood fic, finally.

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)
