NaNoWriMo No. 2 – Chapter 27 pre-post

A little late posting this . . . someone was wrong in the Internet. 

I only half kid, but the other half is that I wrote Chapter 27 last night, and I decided to wait and re-read before posting it. I just got around to it. It will do.

Anyway . . .

Chapter 27 will go live shortly after I post this in a password-protected post. 

Here’s my progress so far:


I wrote 1,858 words yesterday evening, which gives me a cumulative total of 48,125 words. That’s what the spreadsheet says, but I also know that in some instances I edited what I posted as I was posting it, and then copying it back into Scrivener.

That might not make sense to anyone but me, but what it means is that I did an actual count of what I posted, and the total number of words is actually 48,323. 

It should be obvious I am going to blow through the 50K mark with the next one or two chapters. It should be just as obvious I plan to keep going and finish this puppy.

Not being a member of the NaNoWriMo community (I did not register), I can damn well do as I please.

There is one caveat . . . we will be traveling in early December (very early December), and as the date draws near, other things are going to press me for time. 

The plan is to put this to bed before I leave. Should I not be able to do so, know that where we are going I will have limited internet access and usage. I will do my best to be timely, but there is a chance, if I don’t finish before we leave, it will have to wait until I come back . . . what will seem a long wait for some. 

As I said, I’ll try to finish this week, but wanted to give people fair warning.

Here’s my usual ending to these posts.

For them interested in using my spreadsheet, a previous post explains it and provides links for getting either a copy of the Google Docs version, or downloading the Excel Spreadsheet version. That post is HERE.

Anyone wanting to read the novel, please shoot me an e-mail requesting the password, or leave a comment below to that effect.

As a point of information, asking for the password does not mean I will subscribe, or even read, your blog. It just means you get the password. Perhaps I might get curious and check you out, perhaps not. 

One other thing. 

Last year I did a precis . . . I know some people like the precis. I did it last year because I stopped writing for a few months, and then I was not writing regularly.

This puppy is going to be finished before the end of the month. I won’t have time to write a precis, and the timeframe is short enough to perhaps make its absence irrelevant. If not . . . sorry.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

Please, if you are considering bestowing me recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so.  I will decline blogger-to-blogger awards.   I appreciate the intent behind it, but I prefer a comment thanking me for turning you away from a life of crime, religion, or making you a better person in some other way.  That would mean something to me.
