Well, we won’t be breaking any National Novel Writing Month speed writing records but we did manage to work on our manuscripts every day this week. After such a long, dry spell of no writing at all, we’re going to call that a win. In order to make it to the finish and achieve your 50,000 words, you need to maintain a fairly steady pace that averages out to a little over 1,600 words a day, every day for the entire month of November. Speaking from experience, that is a really hard thing to do.
As far as our writing, we’ve been averaging around 700 words a day, sometimes more, sometimes less. Nancy wrote enough to hit 10,000 words on her horror manuscript today. Anne wrote enough to hit 50,000 words on her thriller/suspense manuscript this week (about 7,000 words). We will continue to plug away at our writing, aiming to write every day until the end of the month. It’s a bit like kicking off our training wheels at this point.
We appreciate all the continued support. As always, thanks for sticking with us. We promise to keep you posted.
Anne, Nancy, and Eric
