Off and Typing

Nanowrimo started a bit slow for me.  Last Friday I cleaned my house then went out to the yarn shop for open knitting time.  That night, I wrote nothing.  The next day, I went shopping, came home for some computer time then off to something else.  You could say that I was taking it a bit easy.  But I have applied some butt glue to my seat and have gotten 8,191 words down.

My goal is to write 2,000-2,500 words each weekday and a couple Saturdays.  However, when I worked out my goal, I forgot that I work at the yarn shop on Wednesdays, so it should be more like 2,500 or maybe 3,000.  But anyway, the story is coming along.

I'll admit to doing a little cheating, though.  I already had my book outlined, which isn't cheating.  But I had a couple of chapters already written.  I also copied and pasted over the bones of other chapters.  So not all of it is written during November, but it could have because it wasn't more than a couple thousand words.  So to make up for it, I could shoot for 52,000 words.  But we'll see how much this book needs.

The book I finally decided to work on was Knitting in India (working title).  Yes, a couple posts back I wrote about characters and developing their profile or dossier.  But when it came down to it, I felt I needed to finish something already started than start something brand new.  And this one is more workable than a fiction book for now.
