Novel Update

Total Word Count: 8368
Words Written Today: 2902

I really had to force myself to write today, but at least I did it.

I’m doing OK on the words per day, although I’m still not where I want to be. The NaNoWriMo rate (which I hope to do this November) is 50,000 words in 30 days, or 1667 words per day. Even though 50,000 words is the requirement for NaNoWriMo, it isn’t really a realistic length for a novel. If I wanted to target 80,000 words in 30 days, that would be 2667 words a day. If I wanted to build in a 50% buffer to budget for unforseen delays, that would be 80,000 words in 20 days, or 4000 words a day.
