NaNoWriMo is freaking hard!
But it is kind of cool just how much it's forcing me to write, plus the site itself is pretty darn neat, even though I know I'm not using it to its fullest potential.
For example, I can use the site to keep track of my novel's progress. There are statistics and a chart and everything. Here are my current stats (from Tues night):
As you can see, I have been writing a helluva lot of words per day (in my opinion). I've got just over 35k done, and at the rate I'm going I might actually finish early (ha!).
I'm not sure how many of you realized this, but I am a total nerd. I am a big fan of charts and graphs and things. I even know which one's the x axis and which one's the y. (Hint: "Words" is written along the y axis.)
So I'm totally loving this graph, mostly because it shows that I've been keeping steadily above my cumulative goal for each day. I find that to be incredibly encouraging because, darn it, this is hard stuff.
So that's all for today . . . I've got more writing to do!
