Wednesday's Writing Update: Second Book for NaNoWriMo
My review for Alfred C. Martino's Perfected by Girls is up on Surrounded by Books Reviews.
I have my NaNoWriMo stats.
Day 8: 30029
Day 9: 31466
Day 10: 33739
Day 11: 38123
Day 12: 42437 First Draft of Starred finished.
Day 13: 45117 (Edited Act I)
Day 14: 47630 (Edited Act II, Scene 1 - Act II, Scene 7)
Day 15: 51099 (Edited Act II, Scene 8 - Epilogue) Second Draft of Starred finished.
I can honestly say Starred is my best written first draft, even from the one that took me nine months to write. Maybe the fourth novel is the charm. I'm quite pleased with it, and I think I'll be able to add more words to it in the next few drafts to get the novel between 60,000-65,000 words. Of course, I'll find out if I'm delusional or not when I send it to my first readers. I had hoped to finish Starred earlier than planned, but at least I finished in time.
Now I'm starting novel two The Last Prophetess. It is my goal to reach at least 50,000 words, but it would be awesome if I could complete a first draft of this novel too. I'll have to see how it goes.
How is everyone else's NaNo progress? What are you working on?
