Calender widget and a 3k day

By Katharine Swan On Wednesday, November 09, 2011 At 2:19 PM

Yesterday I found the URL for the calender widget from a previous year, so I don't have to wait on NaNoWriMo to roll them out any longer.  It also turns out that my box for Monday, when I didn't quite make 1,667 words, is yellow, not red — I guess to demonstrate that I was almost there.

Yesterday was a productive day — in addition to getting some client work done, I also pounded out more than 3,000 words on my novel.  I lost track of the exact math, but I know I was a little over 17k when I started, and when I put my computer away late last night, I had 20,514 words.  So I wrote somewhere between 3,000 and 3,500 words last night.

Of course, because I kept writing after midnight, 1,937 of those words went on today's count.  (I'm not sure that's exactly correct, though, because I know I got over 1,667 before midnight, which would make yesterday's total word count over 3,600.  That doesn't sound right to me, so I think the NaNo site is miscounting.)

Although I've technically met today's word count, I'm still planning on working on the novel some more today!  I want to maintain my lead, but I also want to finish the novel this month so that I can take a short break in December, and get started on revisions in January!
