These numbers are up until yesterday’s total. Scrivener seems to be messing with my mind because the project stats show the figures and the session word count. The session number made sense so when I went to plug in the project total into the NaNo site, it said I wrote more than 2K above my total which I still don’t get. Wrap your noggin around that one.
Either way, I’m still rallying to up the count and will continue until the story’s done–dur. That would be the wise choice, yes?
After a month of slaving over the words, we’re left wrought with emotion. To borrow a line sung in a show I watched, once upon a time, “Where do we go from here?”
The writing continues. I want to see how many more words I can hammer out before the end of the month.
Does listening to books count? I’ve been listening to Robert McKee‘s Story to keep me on track. More audiobooks to follow as we pull into the final stretch of the month. It’s a great way to multitask because I’m running out of hours in the day to get everything done, ya know?
I did start to slow down a bit later in the week but the sprints that began it paid off.
Running Total: 53,053 words
I recall writing about my experiences in Toronto last month–has it only been a month?–and something in particular struck a chord with me precisely because it struck a chord with me.
The stars must have aligned beyond the clouds on that mid morning Friday. We were on the highway and I could see the CN Tower pierce through the horizon. The landmark came into view along with the rest of the Toronto skyline and I was overcome with emotion. Nostalgia, happiness, and excitement swirled in my head.
