Day Six

They say a good strategy for Nanowrimo is banking words in the word count to get through days where it might be more difficult to write.  So far I’m almost a day ahead on the total word count.  I have passed the 10k mark and I’m almost at 11k.  It feels good.

With Divide by X, this most recent project, I’ve done several things differently.  I have a notebook full of research, character descriptions and random conversations.  I also have a full plotted spreadsheet thing, though I did not use excel I used paper, a ruler and a pencil.  So far it’s working.  I’ve been doing something I did not know I was capable of doing:  writing linearly.  I started at Chapter One and I’m currently wrapping up Chapter Five.  It’s pretty amazing.
