NaNoWriMo: 9th Day Out of the Gate

Words in the Dark: Post 2

Chilly weather, snow on the ground, shortening day length, and NaNoWriMo — a typical November.

I’m not writing this year, but I am checking in on my NaNo Buddies, whose word scores on the morning of the ninth day stand at:

  • 22,219
  • 17,180
  • 12,806
  • 12,787
  • 7,448
  • no word count reported

Fifty thousand words in 30 days average out to 1,667 words per day. Whether 50K is hit at the end of the month or not, these writers are putting in a serious effort — some around full-time jobs, some around sick children — and deserve to be cheered on.

Go, Wrimos!
