Holy crackers, Batman, I got 2,207 words done.
That’s counting some notes I took, since I need to do some further research for this scene. So technically, I guess it probably worked out to around 2,150 words all together.
A 50,000-word novel written over a month works out to around 1700 words a day, roughly. To do that, you just have to turn off that inner editor and write. Part of the thing is that you don’t stop to look stuff up, a bad habit I have.
Well, okay, I stopped one time to go in my chat room and make a light saber noise when “Main Title” of Return of the Jedi came on.

And I stopped again when my phone rang. It was a recruiter for a job I applied for in April. Better late than never, I guess.
I wanted to put a NaNoWriMo banner or something on my posts, but for some insane reason, I can’t even sign up on the site. So screw them.
I hope everyone who signed up is doing well. See you tomorrow!
