#NaNoWriMo2016 Word count for today = 10,152
I thought I should write a post about how far along I am in the beta version of the book.
Using the Nanocounter my official word count (actual document word count) is sitting around 32,660 however, in the process of writing and the little distractions, I have written another 6K words on top of that! My original target word count for the first part of book one came in at 29K and 15 chapters (not to far short) and while there are still loads to do on it, I hope that the finial pre-publish will pass 30K.
Part 2-Second life MKII is only up to 3.5K, but I hope to get up to the 6K mark by drink o’clock (1759 According to Arthur Guinness)
I am at the point in the manuscript that I have an idea of where it’s going, but no notes on what to write.
I say this far too many times, but I am still amazed that a 2.2k word Halloween short has blown into a book series as more and more readers ask me questions.
I have a private hidden group on facebook where a few have had the chance to preview the first 14 chapters, but until the first part get epublished it will remain secret.
NaNoWriMo Word Count = 44,608
I have scribed just over 2000 words tonight and I am really tired. But with only just over 5000 words left to go. I am feeling nervious.
NaNoWriMo Word Count = 42,545
OMG, I don’t believe it, a bit late but just scribed 42,545 resulting in only 7455 words to go.
Estimated date of finish is still hovering around the 29th so I don’t have time to relax.
I am shattered but still have so much of my story to write and then there is all that editing and rewriting to go.
Onwards and upwards.
Common ladies and gents, let give it one last push to reach the 50K target.
See you in port tomorrow night airship captains and fellow scribes.

NaNoWord Count = 24,794
Really lagging now, realy struggling to find the will power to get on and finish.
NaNoWriMo Word count = 31,486
Well I am now pass the 30K mark and have 18,514 left to go till I pass NaNoWriMo 2013.
That’s the good news, the bad news is that all my planning has now run out and I will have to Pants it to the 50,000 mark!.
“Pants it” means to run by the seat of you pant with no planning and see where the words take you.
I did that for Kitsune and did not enjoy the lack of planning. I am going to hit that 50K but the worst news is that I actually have to pass 60K.
With 13 days to go, I will need to give this a big push! but for now, I am just going to nip outside and do some model making. I finished my wonky MKI Colt revolver and even with all its faults I am happy to have built one! I have loads of models in my shed waiting to be made including an Elven steampunk army from War Machine and an Elven navel fleet.
See you in port soon, Airship captains and scribes!
So last night I hit 26,555 words I still have a chapter to finish off and I am slowly seeing more and more errors crap into my book. Title getting reused as I haven’t got names for characters.
Miss appropriated titles (doorman instead of butler) amongst other things!
I have written my self into a hole. My MC has found a sample of dragon blood and I just don’t quite know how to describe it.
Nevermind I still have 25 thousand I need to write so it’s not like I am short on space, I just need to put the time in!
20,346 Words down.
Well My NaNoWriMo word count now sites at 20,346. for it to be considered a novel according to some web sites it need to be over sixty thousand words.
NaNoWriMo has its word count set to fifty thousand words and I am glad I am almost half way.
Personal target for this week is to have passed the 30K mark well befor the weekend is up!
