NaNoWriMo: Final Week!

Words in the Dark: Post 3

We’re 23 days out with only one week left to go of NaNoWriMo 2017. Go, Wrimos!

I’ve checked in on the NaNo Buddies, and the word counts as of 3:00 p.m. today are as follows:

  • 72,713  This Buddy hit 52,935 on only day 15.

My big congratulations here. How does anyone do that? I barely managed 50K in 30 days in 2014. However, I was at my day job for pretty long hours six days a week, and my fiction rate is only 500-600 words per hour at best.

  • 50,350  Claimed the win.
  • 45,570  Yes! So close.
  • 18,545
  • 14,121
  • no word count reported

Whatever your word count, Wrimos, you’re farther along than I am this year.
