Day 4 – NaNoWriMo 2015 progress

I made a good decision today.  My original goal of 2,500 words per day was a bit high.  That would have left me with a 75,000 word novel at the end of the 30 days.  A good achievement, but given the craziness of my life, I was pushing myself a bit too hard.

So today I revised my goal to 2,000 words a day.  Still over the 1,667 needed to make 50,000 words by the end of the month.  But more achievable given the long hours I’m working.

My current count stands at 8,263 words.  I still feel like this novel is a train wreck, but my “positive voice” is telling me that I’m just discovery writing.  I’ll probably throw a lot of this away during editing, but I’m getting it on paper.  That’s my goal for this month – just get the words out and onto the page, no matter how bad.

Excelsior!
