3998 by day two…

My word count reached 3998 today. You’re probably wondering why I didn’t manage to write two more words to reach an even 4000, but I wasn’t in an even kind of mood. At any rate, hoorah for a successful second day of Nanowrimo, especially since weekends are more challenging because my family is home, well, home for intervals in between running in multiple directions that sometimes involve my jumping in my car to deliver them from one location to another. Often more than once.

I definitely tripped up a few times and edited some of my writing this morning. In general, there is nothing wrong with that, except that my edits usually meant cutting words, which results in cutting the word count down. I may reach a point when I want to use my nanowrimo mojo to edit, but right now, I’m eager to write as much as I can and see where this novel winds up going. So I need to try not to reread what I’ve written, if I can help it.

Write on, everyone!

Oh, and I was late to finding the badges on the nano website, so here is the one from yesterday.
