Second Day Slog on the NaNoWriMo Challenge


Okay, I realize it’s officially the fifth day of the NaNoWriMo (NNWM) Challenge. However, I was a bit slow off the mark distracted by other things, like work, making money, and similar mundane efforts. Whatever the reasons, I didn’t get to pounding the keys until yesterday. I typed like a wild man, from early in the morning until late at night. I tried to do the same today, even eating cold cuts and such to avoid spending time on cooking. I wanted to get more words today than yesterday!

No dice.

I decided I’ll shoot for 125,000 words for the month; a truly insane amount, but then, I’m a typing wild man, right? I’ve decided to actually name the goal: Impossopotamus. Big, bloated, lurking in the river waiting to come roaring out and eat me. It fits. Scorecard so far:

Words Today: 8,900; Total Words: 21,620; NNWM Completion: 42.4%; Impossopotamus Completion: 17.2%. I’m in the black against both goals, and only two days in! That means I’ve already made up for the missing thee days at the beginning of the month.. I’m averaging over 10,000 words a day, so far. The bad news is, I’m getting Very Tired. I think my fingers are all an inch shorter already, and my laptop keyboard’s getting squirrely.

More as I know it. You can send money, or reheatable foods, if you want to really help me out…

Enjoy the (Growing Totals) Heat!
