blog advertising is good for you
So I'm half-heartedly doing NaNoWriMo. I'm not remotely close to the 1667 words/day average to get a 50k word manuscript done this month, but I'm getting at least a little something written each day, and it's all in one story, too.
Alas, the story isn't Strong Heart. Strong Heart is actually a 'practice' story I started to test out how writing a weblit serial would go before I attempted telling the story I really want to share. That story, the story of Eli, is the one I'm working on now. Strong Heart isn't abandoned, but I'm more enthusiastic about Eli's story than Jo's and Tobias' at the moment.
I wanted somewhere I could keep track of my (wimpy) daily wordcounts, because you can't improve if you can't tell what you're currently doing. That's what this post is for: I'm going to put the end-of-day word counts here so I have an easy place to find them, and on the off chance anyone else is curious.
Update: Eli's story has a title now, "The Elemental Magician."
From the beginning of November through the 12th, I wrote a net ~3070 words.
