NaNoWriMo 2016 Update #2

by Kellyn Roth |
November 14, 2016

The first five times (yes, five!) times I wrote the title, I wrote ‘NaNoWriMo 2016 Updated #2.’ Consider yourself updated. *sports reference* *confirmation of points received*
Yep. My fingers type with no regard to my brain sometimes …

Back to our regularly scheduled programming, my word count has now reached 28o46 words. Some days I write more, some days I write less, but that’s approximately 2000 every day.
Since I only wanted to write 1700 a day, I’m a little ahead, which is fantastic, as in past years I struggled to get out enough to make 40000 in a month, while at this rate, I could get 60000, assuming I had that much content (which I don’t, really). But the end of the month is gonna be busy, so it’s good that I’m somewhat ahead.
If you want to know more than that about words and days, find it out here, at my stats on the adult NaNoWriMo.
Because I’m kind of in a hurry, that’s all for today, guys. Yeah, it was lame, but … okay, I have no excuse … comment?! 😉


“Oh, Alice, don’t say that!” Cassie said, shaking off her somewhat dark mood and smiling mischievously. “After all, she’s intimate with the Ashfields. We mustn’t talk badly about anyone who’s intimate with the Ashfields.”

“No, we mustn’t,” Alice said playfully. “Why, the sky would likely fall!”

“The Thames would flood!”

“The earth would quake!”

“The dogs would howl!”

Thoughts on the quote? Are you reaching your NaNoWriMo goal? Or are you enjoying watching everyone else try to produce ridiculous amounts of words every day, eating popcorn, and laughing quietly to yourself?

  1. I’m more of the latter- enjoying watching everyone else try to produce ridiculous amounts of words every day, eating popcorn, and laughing quietly to myself. Although I’m eating more chocolate. 😉 And sometimes I laugh aloud.

      1. Me, evil? No way! I’m the nicest person you could ever meet. 😉 Share my chocolate? Hah! You’ve got to be kidding! 😛

  2. *pouts only a little because I love your updates and this one is itty-bitty ;D* AWESOME WORD COUNT KELLYN!!! WHOO-HOO you are rocking it. I am soo excited for this novel. =)
    I’m *sorta* the latter… Eating Christmas chocolate… Writing/editing my own novel… Watching you NaNo people scream a little… *evil laugh*. ;D
    God bless!

  3. I’ve already reached my goal (50000), so right now I’m struggling to write more since I don’t have more motivation…
    I love that quote!! I definitely hope that you reach your goal!! 😀
