message 2: by Tina (new)

Tina (javabird) | 564 comments Thank you. At least I'm not the only one having a hard time getting started.


message 3: by Nancy (new)

Nancy Meservier (temporaryworlds) | 135 comments I'm at 5888, so I'm a little ahead. It's always easier for me to start then to finish.


message 4: by Timothy (new)

Timothy Pecoraro | 226 comments 5740 for me. Im at work or I would be writing now. Stopped midscene


message 5: by Gard (new)

Gard Skinner (gard_skinner) Much respect for your journey....


message 6: by Thane (new)

Thane | 476 comments Apparently I will be finished in April, if I don't pick up the pace. I'm one of those "agonize over word choice" writers.


message 7: by Reed (new)

Reed Bosgoed (ReedBosgoed) | 17 comments I'm up to 2800, so I'm behind but I've got nothing else to do for the rest of the day. Time to get to it.


message 8: by Trike (new)

Trike | 4913 comments Day 3.

Word count: 0.

iPhones purchased: 1.

Xmas presents bought: 2.

So far, so good.


message 9: by Timothy (new)

Timothy Pecoraro | 226 comments Day 3,
Just hit the 7,000 word mark. Felt good to push myself to it, even though I wanted to quit at 6200.


message 10: by Shaline (new)

Shaline Lopez | 41 comments 560. I rewrote that one page three times and I'm still not happy with it.


message 11: by Mike (new)

Mike | 41 comments 6676 as of last night. Haven't tried writing anything new in six years and it feels good to change up.

9694. I know. I've been thinking about this story all year and now that I'm writing it, it's like I'm binge-watching on Netflix. I just want to find out what happens next.

I'll stop humble-bragging now.


message 13: by Timothy (new)

Timothy Pecoraro | 226 comments well Tom as long as u dont hit 30000 words and get completely stuck. ;)


message 14: by Moonlitfractal (new)

Moonlitfractal | 15 comments I'm trying to add chapters to my existing project because I write super slowly. I'm at 512 since the beginning of the month, which is pretty good, for me.

Don't think that fear hasn't crossed my mind, lol.


message 16: by Jonathan (new)

Jonathan | 185 comments 1000. Though I'm distracted by grad assistant work, course work and other writing work. So I've temporarily stalled out.


message 17: by Thomas (new)

Thomas Cardin | 68 comments 9100 on day 3. 'And then what happens?' is my mantra.


message 18: by Kristina (new)

Kristina | 587 comments i think i'm at like 3500, which is a personal record for me-a little behind but ok with it


message 19: by Sky (new)

Sky Corbelli | 323 comments 5320 as of last night. I hate starting stories, and I hate having to get to the scenes that I already have planned out, but I'm nearly there now...


message 20: by Timothy (new)

Timothy Pecoraro | 226 comments So I got an incredible idea for a new book last night. So I started over. I wrote the first 4232 words tonight. Can't write anymore today too tired. I may be behind but I am SO EXCITED about my new story!


message 21: by Trike (new)

Trike | 4913 comments Day 4.

Word count: 0.

Closet doors fixed: 1.

Naps taken: 1.

Not. Panicking.


message 22: by Mike (new)

Mike | 41 comments So I started Friday afternoon after work, with the afternoon off and the weekend to look forward to. Turns out writing Monday after nine hours of drudgery is much harder. Only did 1200 words last night. Went to bed early. Want to quit my job.


message 23: by Timothy (new)

Timothy Pecoraro | 226 comments Just got back to 7000 with my new project. So that's great. Now I just have to get out from behind. Which I think means at least one more 3000 or more word day. That day will probably be tomorrow. LOL


message 24: by Darren (new)

Darren Humphries (Darrenhf) | 96 comments I'm about 9k words now, but I'vs split my time across 3 writing projects I have on the go to make surethat if I block on one I have someplace else to go.


message 25: by Trike (new)

Trike | 4913 comments Recap from yesterday:

Frisbees tossed across the TV station control room: 1.


message 26: by Trike (new)

I'm disappointed in you, for some reason.


message 28: by Nancy (new)

Nancy Meservier (temporaryworlds) | 135 comments I'm at 13,098. Got a good momentum going. I hope it lasts!


message 29: by Timothy (new)

Timothy Pecoraro | 226 comments I'm at 10,042 and I'm write back where I was progress wise before I started this new thing. I can't believe I was that much behind. As good of an idea as this was it is really kick my a$$. So I look forward to tomorrow where I will probably have to write at least another 2,000 words. Oh well... LOL

Name Less | 16 comments Day 6: 15,264
Going quite well.


message 31: by Lee (new)

Anyone else think they're about to hit the wall?


message 32: by Dwayne (new)

Dwayne Caldwell | 141 comments Day 7 and I've put in 1,751 today so far, but I'm at 8,051 total so I'm not done yet. I lost a day so it's put me behind. Anyway, I've wasted enough words on this post. Back to binge writing.


message 33: by Timothy (new)

Timothy Pecoraro | 226 comments Just hit 12,055. I'm done for day 7. Horrible day writing. Very little progress made. But tomorrow will be better. It practically HAS TO BE. LOL


message 34: by Timothy (new)

Timothy Pecoraro | 226 comments Hey My NanoWrimo peeps! Where are you? How many words have you written? I just had an awesome day with almost 3,000 words for a total of 15,035. What happened to everyone?


message 35: by Thomas (new)

Thomas Cardin | 68 comments I should break 18k tonight. The words have been flowing well for me.

Day 8.

Word count: 1,795.

Ah, that's more like it.

Well, at least tomorrow I have to get up early to do my volunteer thing then talk to a plumber then go see Thor 2. So that should keep me comfortably off-track.

Instead of writing today, I made this:




message 37: by Timothy (new)

Timothy Pecoraro | 226 comments Just hit 17,095. It took much too long, but I am well and truly on track now to easily finish on time. How about all of you???


message 38: by Shaline (new)

Shaline Lopez | 41 comments Well according to the website I'm on schedule to finish my book by the end of November....2014. Uh-oh.


message 39: by Mike (new)

Mike | 41 comments Up to 18101 words, did over 3000 today. Feeling pretty good about the story too.


message 40: by Timothy (new)

Timothy Pecoraro | 226 comments Just did a quick 2,000 words to hit a total of 19,000. Very fast writing day today. Saving up the rest in the tank for tomorrow.


message 41: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer Swerbensky  | 75 comments So, this is my first year participating. And I'm quite proud of the fact that I've already hit 16,989 words. It's been awhile since I've done any kind of substantial writing.


message 42: by Matthew (new)

Matthew (masupert) | 209 comments 15,257. Pretty pleased with myself. I wrote over 7,000 yesterday during the write-in.


message 43: by Shaline (new)

Shaline Lopez | 41 comments Only 3,275, but I am really proud of every word.

That's nuts! I've never written that much during one day.

I'm up to 24,056. Should pass the halfway mark tomorrow.


message 45: by Timothy (new)

Timothy Pecoraro | 226 comments I just hit 21,000. I'm pretty much holding steady at around 2,000 a day. As long as I get about 1,500 I'll have clear sailing to the end of the month. I'm starting to think that this is not going to be anywhere near finished at 50,000 words. Lol


message 46: by Mike (new)

Mike | 41 comments Just over 20,000 myself. Only wrote about 1300 yesterday but left off where something big is about to happen and figured I'd start fresh today and get through it all in one go.


message 47: by Sky (new)

Sky Corbelli | 323 comments Ah, 3 day weekends, how I've missed you. Just shy of 15k words done from Saturday morning to Monday night, bringing me up to a hair over 30k. I mean, it's mainly word vomit, but at least it's lots of word vomit.


message 48: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer Swerbensky  | 75 comments I'm over 21,000 now. I've felt the last two days I was kind of pushing myself. I'm not sure I can keep this up...


message 49: by Timothy (new)

Timothy Pecoraro | 226 comments Big writing day. Over 2,000 words written for a total of 25,075! Big scene in the rear view, YAY!


message 50: by Jacob (new)

Jacob Lawrence | 60 comments I'm at 9000 for NaNoWriMo, Divide and conquer is not going well...
