I am — very briefly — in the lead on the word count for people in my cabin with 3857 words. That’s less than a thousand words a day. I’m stunned at how few actual new words I’m writing as I revise the book. Part of it is the revision process, but part of it is that I’m doing less because I have a lower goal than regular NaNo. Still, I’m over a third of the way to my goal and it’s only Day 4. My only concern is whether I will actually need to add 10 K words to the book. I’m expanding some scenes that were originally very thinly written and I’m also adding some scenes that I realize I need, but it’s hard to gauge how many more words revising and editing will produce.
Because writing is solitary and not something most people can identify with, here’s a pic I took today of my dogs…and also some tea. 🙂 A picture’s worth a thousand words, as the saying goes…hey, can I add these to my word count??!! 😉
