I figured out quite early on in the month that there was no way I was going to finish this year. In fact, by the end of the first week, I had changed my goal to just complete the project that I’m working on.
Funnily enough, I’m failing at that, too (and that was just 500 words a day — now it’s gone up to at least 1000).
It’s 2am now. I’ve been writing for a few hours, and today I’ve brought my finish date down to about mid December. How an I tracking this? I set up my own spreadsheet that I’ve customised to track my new custom goal — kind of like Camp.
I may not be getting a lot done, but at least I’m writing every day (pretty much. I have skipped a few, which contributes to my ‘falling behind’ status).
I might write about my spreadsheet sometime soon, if anyone is interested.
What’s your NaNo status? Are you ahead? Behind? Just cruising along the daily count line?
