Writer’s Chartography

So it’s Saturday, a week ago since the start of December and the end of NaNoWriMo but not the end of my novel. As per my pledge I’ve been trying to keep up the writing habit in the endeavour of completing the (zero) draft by the end of the year. It’s certainly not going as well as the initial days of November, but I have surprised myself by producing some words everyday since my weekend off writing straight after NaNo.

And, as promised, here is how I’ve done.

Word Counts Dec 8th


Amazingly the total word count has increased and my daily word count chart shows that I’m writing everyday. I haven’t spent long on those words though – a train journey here, a quick 20m burst there and so on. It’s December – life always seems to get busy during the build up to Christmas; friends to see, shopping to do, decorations to put up etc. But if I can maintain some momentum then perhaps the novel will slowly take shape and finish despite these distractions.

  1. I can agree, it isn’t an easy month, but it is good to see progress. Where did you get your chart from. I’d like to do something like that for mine, although I’ve been mostly managing the allotted word count its been very tough. Keep going I’m with you all the way.

    • I had my fiancé create it for me in Excel. I just plug in my total word count and it does the rest and updates the bar charts I have already created. Very nifty.
      Glad that you’re doing well: and that there are others out there still writing through December! We can make it!
      Thanks for the encouragement.
