The Behinder I Was, The Further I Went

Filed under: Uncategorized — chapterhouse @ 1:54 pm

Finished Week 2 of Novel In Less Than One Year (NILTOY) yesterday with the week’s word count at 2,810. Rut-roh. The weekly goal was 3,500, so I was 690 words short. With the big shiny “L” on my forehead, I posted the week’s results.

But then they told me that the weekly goal is only 2,500 words, not 3,500. It’s 500 words a day, but only five days a week, not seven, so I was 310 words ahead! Dig me and all my verbage!

I finished reading No Plot? No Problem! by Chris Baty, founder of NaNoWriMo. They write a novel in 30 days. Okay. Those people? Nuts (and I oughta know). 🙂

Today I’m starting Al Franken’s new one, The Truth, with Jokes, a Christmas gift from my in-laws.

Let’s see, if I carry over the extra 310 words to this week, then I’ll only have to write 2,190 between now and next Saturday …



  1. Aw, Candace, just go crazy and do 503 words a day. Then you’ll REALLY be far ahead.

  2. Wow. Motivation. But I would never know where to start! I am glad you are up to the challenge.

  3. You said, “…then I’ll only have to write 2,190 between now and next Saturday …”

    What you meant was, “then I GET to write 2,190 between now and next Saturday …”

    You love to write, and you know it! And I’m REALLY looking forward to finding out what happens on Paradise Parkway!
