Ayantiel | 25 comments Nice! I'm currently at 1336 words, so I've got some left to write for today, but I'm meeting up with a few fellow writers in my area, so I think I'll manage ^_^
Keep it up!

Also funny how NaNoWriMo messes with one's head; it seems our cabin has a friendly ghost! http://ayantiel.livejournal.com/22600...

Jennifer (gxeninjo) | 3 comments So far 2638 today, which is good because I have some reading to do for my writer's workshop tomorrow. Sor far I've introduced one pov character. Gook luck everyone.


message 11: by Cami (new)

Cami (camikittr) How many words per chapter should I have?


message 12: by Cami (new)

Cami (camikittr) Ok. That gives me an idea of it. :)


message 13: by Ella (new)

Ella (ellarosewood) | 119 comments I'm not very good at long chapter, so mine average around 250 each. Which is why I am already working on chapter 6.


message 14: by Carson (new)

Carson Schubert (freako987) | 31 comments I haven't even started lol I'm in houston


message 15: by Ayantiel (new)

Ayantiel | 25 comments right on schedule, I'm writing another steady 1667-and then some.
I'm still on my first chapter. In my NaNo of November each chapter consisted of 6000+ words.
It solely depends on the writer and the story you're telling. Write in the way that works for you ;)


message 16: by Sparrowlicious (new)

Sparrowlicious 1853 today, 5420 altogether (only really slightly overachieving there - might as well be stocking some words up for bad days).
So far I had to keep myself from writing too much details because the sub plot is already running away with the main plot again. D: The nerves in my hands are easily irritated so I can't write so much before they really hurt (they are not swollen or anything or else I would actually get a treatment from my doctors).
Meh. I got to the conclusion that I want to write what I want (instead of keeping up with general socially acceptable things) so therefore two of my main charactes are in a really interesting platonic relationship (some kind of interesting touchy touchy bromance). I love them.


message 17: by Cami (new)

Cami (camikittr) 1069 words, not counting the summary and chapter titles.


message 18: by Carson (new)

Carson Schubert (freako987) | 31 comments finally i get a chance to start my book! back from houston today


message 19: by Eve (new)

Eve (emusings) Awesome guys!


message 20: by Carson (new)

Carson Schubert (freako987) | 31 comments not going so good, its tough while watching the miss USA pageant ;)


message 21: by Eve (new)

Eve (emusings) Hehe, never fear... I'm sure all great writers had the exact same problem. E.E. Cummings was said to be a sucker for Miss Carolina.


message 22: by Carson (new)

Carson Schubert (freako987) | 31 comments Haha true ;) oh well I only got up to 719 tonight, on pace to finish in December of this year :/


message 23: by Hayley (new)

Hayley (applesticker) | 9 comments wow good works guys!! even though I'm supposed to be studying and not starting until the 8th, I have 950 words :)


message 24: by Carson (new)

Carson Schubert (freako987) | 31 comments Haha good job!


message 25: by Sparrowlicious (new)

Sparrowlicious Aww, guys.
If anyone is struggling with getting some plot down: plant some sub plot if the story itself doesn't do it for you.

My novel usually runs away with the sub plot until I stop it.


message 26: by Carson (new)

Carson Schubert (freako987) | 31 comments I'm just winging it and whatever happens happens


message 27: by Cami (new)

Cami (camikittr) I looked at my stats, and it said at my current rate, I'll finish on December 4!!! But it also said that to finish on time I'll need to write 1,813 words per day, so I figured that I can do that...


message 28: by Carson (new)

Carson Schubert (freako987) | 31 comments good luck! im aiming to reach 3000 words today, which means i need to write over 2200 words... here i go

message 35: by Carson (new)

Carson Schubert (freako987) | 31 comments I've hit 2411, almost at my daily word count to finish on time! i've already written 1700 today and its only 1:10!


message 36: by Carson (new)

Carson Schubert (freako987) | 31 comments lucky! but im aiming to reach 3000 today, nearly there


message 37: by Eve (new)

Eve (emusings) Wow, you guys are doing great! I think we have some winners in this bunch : )


message 38: by Carson (new)

Carson Schubert (freako987) | 31 comments I MADE IT!!! 3058 OH YEAH. I wrote 2,348 words today. Time to take the night off


message 39: by Sparrowlicious (new)

Sparrowlicious Somehow I feel it's easy being 'on time' with my word count but my plot right now? Not so much. Things went better when I was overachieving last year in November. xD
I already got the week 2 blues because of this ... even though it's not even week 2 yet.


message 40: by Carson (new)

Carson Schubert (freako987) | 31 comments Jesus Lauren you crazy nut! I've written almost 5500 words and the main story hasn't even started yet :)


message 41: by Sparrowlicious (new)

Sparrowlicious At least there's a day off tomorrow. That gives me enough time to rest between writing and ... being totally clueless on how to go on.
My characters do what they want (all of sudden two of my guys are in an asexual relationship - how did this happen?).
I know the plot - I outlined it. But the sub plot always wants do do its own thing. D:

I should lock my characters up until they are ready to cooperate.


message 42: by Carson (new)

Carson Schubert (freako987) | 31 comments yes, yes you are.


message 43: by Cami (new)

Cami (camikittr) Wow! You guys are way ahead of me! I don't even plan on finishing it, I just wanted to try it out, and write some...


message 44: by Carson (new)

Carson Schubert (freako987) | 31 comments WOW lazy! im totally going for it


message 45: by Carson (new)

Carson Schubert (freako987) | 31 comments SHUT UP. that was mean


message 46: by Carson (new)

Carson Schubert (freako987) | 31 comments ;)


message 47: by Sparrowlicious (new)

Sparrowlicious 12111 words and my lower right arm feels like I hit a nerve there. D: That's not cool. At least my characters seem to be willing to cooperate some more. Only took me all day to write after all... durr.


message 48: by Carson (new)

Carson Schubert (freako987) | 31 comments wow! your doing great!


message 49: by Eve (new)

Eve (emusings) Woah, Sparrowlicious! Nice job : )
