This year I decided to do a modified Nanowrimo and focus on outlining my next book with goal being to have no 0 word count days. 15 days in and I’ve managed to keep that streak alive! My totals so far are below:
So far I’ve been averaging 635 words per day. This has been enough for me to complete my first detailed outline, which was 11,572 words long on 10/31, with 19,887 words. I expect that this next book will wind up about 80-100k words long so right now my book will probably be about 4-5x the length of the outline, which sounds about right and may be an underestimate since I have a lot of dialogue in some spots of my outline.
I was planning on counting this post towards my writing total for today (these 182 words are writing related!), but I’ve got some ideas in my head I want to jot down first so I think I’ll go for a two-fer tonight.
On to the next half of Nanowrimo and editing my detailed outline! Good luck to everyone else who is participating this year too!
