That's right folks, day eight and I'm hanging in there. From here on out I'm not going to waste a lot of words on these pages because God knows I need them for my nano novel (and to write scathing letters that I will probably never send to people who have crossed me). So here's the numbers as of right now.
Cumulative word count = 11,355
Total words remaining - 38,645
Current day = 8
Days remaining - 22
Average words per day = 1420
Words per day to finish on time = 1757
So it looks like I've got to pick it up a little bit, but not much considering my average page-per-day count when I'm writing a real novel is between 500-700.
Back to it.
