JanNoWriMo day 23 update

Previous update

The writing on ‘The Scroll’ is going pretty well. I’m into chapter three, with a word count of 8,309 to date – not a Nanowrimo level of output, obviously, but ahead of track for my sample chapters goal.

I thought that I wasn’t doing so well with the other goal of ’30 pages’, but once I remembered that the manuscript format I was wanting to use was 12-point font, that made my page count much more impressive.

At this point, I’m just getting into the scene where my main character, Will Peterman, is telling the bosses that he saved the priceless Persian scroll from burglars who were trying to steal it, but he’s not going to return the scroll until he can be sure that it’ll be safe in the museum. I’m not sure that’s going to go over too well, especially considering there’s not so much evidence for his burglar girls.

Stay tuned for a JanNoWriMo wrap-up next week, and keep writing!

    So you decided to write as much as you can in January? That’s cool if you did.

    Thanks for posting on my blog about the speck. It’s a great perspective about your speck.


    • Actually, no, I’m not trying to ‘write as much as I can’ – at least, not as my highest priority. I’ve got quite a bit of other stuff going on, but I wanted to get 10,000 words or 30 pages of sample chapters written – just enough to keep my inner writing ninja in good shape.

      Thanks for posting about the speck! It was a cool notion.


  3. I think that’s brilliant progress!

    Oooh I didn’t know you were a JaNo WriMoFo too – I did it but not as hardcore as I’d hoped.
