Winter is come, it's pissing freezing, and I'm still in Poland. It's not that things aren't going according to plan, more that my plan wasn't very good.

I'm wrapping up this year's National Novel Writing Month attempt after 30 days with 43,996 words. Shy of 50k, but a new second place.

I feel like I'm about half way through Birds and I'm going to try to keep up a pace of at least 750 words per day (thanks 750words.com) for days I can - the only real excuse not to being Vipassana meditation courses - until it's done.

In a way, doing nanowrimo in a different month has reminded me that I can write during months that aren't November. Usually, on the 1st of December I decide I'll take a break, recharge, it's been crazy.. but I'll get back to it. I'll write the ending, I'll edit. And I haven't, yet. This time should be different. For a start, I don't feel burnt out on the story. I haven't had a single day of writing words for the sake of words. It's all been to advance the plot or develop the characters, moving ever forwards. This month it didn't feel crazy.

  • This is a mean of 1,466 words per day.
  • Only on one day I wrote 0 words (the 26th).
  • Apart from that, the least I wrote in a day was 16 words (the 21st).
  • The most I wrote in a day was 3,410 (on the 10th).
  • On 12 days I wrote more than the 1,667 target.
