NaNoWriMo 2010 Day 13

I was up at 6:30 this morning as opposed to 7, thanks to going to bed just after 8 last night and getting a full night’s sleep.  I wrote chapter 13 this morning, which consisted of the first three scenes after the climactic Chapter 12.  I got in a total of 2,199 words (would have been nice to squeeze in one more I suppose) for a 13-day total of 32,462 words.

I think I’m more than 11,000 words above NaNoWriMo pace which is a comfortable feeling, but I also have yet to encounter a day where I can’t exceed my own personal daily goal of 2000 words.  I’m sure that day is coming, but it’s nice to know that at this point, I’ve more than made up for it.  At my current pace, I can cut down to just over 1000 words a day and still hit 50,000 words by November 30.  But of course, I’m aiming for 90,000 words by December 15 and I’m going to keep plugging away, and keep the pressure on my NaNo buddies.

Here are the stats for today:
