Word Count – November 21, 2013

Tonight I finished my NaNoWriMo, though I’m not all that keen on the ending.  I take that back.  I hate the ending, it sucks.  I’ll have to revise it in a rewrite.

My word count is 57,233.

It’s time for a rest and to wait for this to be official.

Word Count – November 20, 2013

This story is starting to wind down.  The next chapter will either be a confession chapter or a revelation chapter.  I’m leaning toward the revelation chapter.

My current word count is 56,002.

Word Count – November 19, 2013

I’m still winding up to the climax and resolution of my story.  I did not do a lot of work on it tonight, needing to take a bit of a break.  My current word count is 54,274.

I have learned that Windows 8.1 makes my preferred writing program act a bit weird.  The message boxes and texts are not lining up.  I’m hoping that it resolves itself  the next time I start it up.  We’ll see.

Word Count – November 18, 2013

Since I hit 50,000 (and beyond) last night, tonight was an off night.  My current word count is only 52,500, and I’m working on reaching the climax of the story.

Once again, I have made the NaNoWriMo word count.  Currently, I sit at a word count of 51811 (or 51598 from the official National Novel Writing Month counter, to off by about 200 words).

Some major developments in this part of the story as we build to the climax.  Some of them I had expected, and one caught me completely off guard.  I have a pretty good idea how this is going to play out, now I just have to see it through until the end.

My only regret is that I was not able to participate in a local all night write in, which sounded like it was going to be pretty cool.  Granted, I still ended up writing almost all night from when I got home from work, to I was there in spirit, if not in the flesh.

Word Count – November 16, 2013

Okay, I feel a little bit better about my word count tonight.  I’m currently at 47,887 (or 47,763 if you go by NaNoWriMo‘s official word counter), and spent most of this in one chapter.

And only had to shoot at my characters a couple of times.

Now, for a little writing music…

I discovered Cowboy Bebop quite by accident.  I was in a anime experimental mood and picked up the first DVD at a Media Play of all places.  I had scene anime before, but never like this.  Or rather, I had never heard anime like this.  A lot of it had a very cheesy fluffy pop music.  Cowboy Bebop was different, right from the theme music.  The theme still makes a great writing jam.

The version here is from a live performance, but the soundtrack is available from iTunes.

NaNoWriMo Word Count – November 15, 2013

I’m still doubting that I will reach 50,000 words with this story.  If I do, it might just be a little bit over.

Currently I’m at 45,212 words, with my main character and his love interest finding the building in the woods that is the biggest clue of the story.

I’m just concerned that someone I did not intend to die may meet their maker.

Word Count – November 13, 2013

I have passed the 40,000 mark with an official word count of 40,625.  More of the mystery is getting explored, and events are starting to escalate.

The only dilemma I seemed to run into is Google was not being cooperative on my laptop.  Rebooting probaly will clear that up, which I did not feel like feeling with at the moment.

NaNoWriMo Word Count – November 12, 2013

I’m starting to get a little concerned about my NaNoWriMo project.  I get the feeling that the story is getting closer to its climax, and I’m only at 37,454 words.  Granted, I have not found the “club house” that’s the primary murder scene.

I did, however, try to kill my main characters in much the same way their father was killed.

Oh yes, that was indeed a murder, too.
