NaNoWriMo 2010 Check-In #3

Posted in Writing at 12:34 am by Amber

I’m a few days late in my NaNoWriMo check-in.  Sorry!

I had Friday off work and that was my best writing day this year.  In the afternoon I went to a write-in at Colin’s Coffee.  It’s a long space with a counter and several tables.  Shopping center employees and other regulars came in for their coffee fix.   We had one person visiting from Cleveland who was in town and wanted to get some writing done.  My noveling fuel was tomato soup and a frozen hot chocolate. 

In the evening was a second write-in at the Chocolate Cafe.  Apparently they have an all you can eat chocolate fondue special from 5pm to 10pm on Fridays for $6.99.  My noveling fuel was lobster bisque soup and (free refills) coke.  Surprisingly, I didn’t touch the chocolate at all.

On Friday alone I wrote 6034 words.  Not bad by my count.  It brought me up to 28234 words total.

One of the neat tools for NaNoWriMo is the Excel report card I’ve been using for as long as I can remember.  I was able to look back at my writing stats and my best day ever was on 11/30/2008 on the first version of this story.  I cranked out 8270 words in 7 hours.  Tonight I read some of those words.  Other than the last few paragraphs I have no recollection of what I wrote.  It was interesting to see how I tied up the main plot line.

How has your writing week been?

    It sounds like you’re doing great, but I don’t know how you resisted the chocolate fondue.
