25 Days Left

25 days left until my Novel In 90 run ends. Knocked out 6 pages yesterday before needing to let Melissa on the computer. She wanted to play a game to unwind, so I finished up most of the villain's scene and closed shop for the night. Only got to report the totals on Wednesday's word count over in the community this morning and here now.

Novel In 90 Goal
Zokutou word meter
68,000 / 67,500

Green is an appropriate color for this particular word meter because NIN's worked for me. It's a setup I can follow. What's I'll find particularly telling is whether I can keep or increase the pace during these last 25 days. Because the rewrite is not done. I'm sitting at 272 pages, 15 pages into Chapter 11. I've got about 190 more pages complete in the previous draft. At this point I'm probably going to need more than that as a cushion to finish the book. Call it another 30-50 pages. Which is where the 135,000-150,000 word estimate originated.

So ... a little less than 8 weeks to reach and surpass 67,500 words. I'm going to try for 72,000 before the week is over. That should put me right at the top of the hill as I tackle the meat of Part Three and conclude the book.

34 Things

mizkit asked:

If you're on my friends list, I want to know 34 things about you. I don't care if we never talk, never liked each other, or if we already know everything about each other. Short and sweet is fine... I just wanna know you better! Thanks! =)

Day was hectic. Went home to tend to a sick child. Worked on stuff from home and mental exhaustion took it's toll. Napped. No writing done.

LOL. Figures. Reach the goal for NIN and ... WHAM! Brick wall.

So ... 24 days to rewrite 190 plus pages.
