Final word count: 10,232
Average words per day: 341
Well, that wraps it up for this year’s NaNoWriMo.
My word count was not the 25,000 words that I had originally planned, but I’ll definitely take the 10,232 words that I did manage to produce this year. That’s roughly twice what I achieved last year, so that’s definitely a good thing. (Any word count greater than zero… right?)
The story itself went off into an unexpected that: 1) makes sense, but, 2) is going to be interesting to resolve. I believe that I have managed to recapture much of the original “tone” of the original story, but this one is turning out to be a slightly different book. Funny how that seems to happen in sequels and followup stories, huh?
With effort and luck, the final version of this story might see print by August. We shall see . . .
