Day 3: 10091

Day 7: 25005
Day 8: 30029
I still can't believe I'm at 30,029 many words in eight days. My goal for Starred is to finish the first draft by Saturday, so I can start The Last Prophetess on Sunday.
I had a slight breakdown on Day 3 where I panicked and wondered how I was going to write two novels in a month, but things have kept going, and I feel good about where Starred is heading. The random scenes are going well. Some I can knock out in 30 minutes to an hour. Others take me a little longer, but that's okay. I think I'm writing this novel better than any other novel. I suppose by the fourth novel I should know a bit more how I write one. *laughs*
My main concern is now resting with The Last Prophetess. I only came up with the idea for it a couple months ago. I don't have a completed outline and two possible endings. I might have to . . . pants it. Yeah, a planner like me might not have everything as orderly for The Last Prophetess. It worries me. That's why I want to finish Starred a few days early so I can figure out how The Last Prophetess will go.
Wish me luck.
For those doing NaNoWriMo, how's it going? For those who aren't, what are you working on right now?
