Reality Game – Day 58

I’ll keep this short, as I need to get to bed, but wanted to update my readers.

I’ve worked on the novel three days in a row. Thanks to getting an extra hour Sunday morning, and starting around 12:30 am on writing, in 5.5 hours I wrote 2265 words.

This morning, less time. Started writing at 3 am, and ended 3 hours later at 6 am. Wrote 1447 words in that time.

I also decided I might as well do NaNo officially, though I don’t know if I’ll hit the 50K mark or not. I know there are commitments that will get in the way. Like tonight, I’ll need to write a article for my Tuesday column at SpecFaith blog. That usually takesĀ  a good hunk of the night, so not sure if I’ll get any writing done on the novel. If I do, it won’t likely be enough to keep me caught up..

But at least at the moment I’m on track to make 50K. Since I type so slow now, I have to find around 5 hours a day on the novel, at least 4, to stay on track. We’ll see how it goes. For now, a decent start and the novel is progressing along though I’m still not sure where it is all going. Or how they are going to get out of the mess I’m putting them all in.

I asked for prayers for Natalie last time. Now all four of them need it. Jeremy, Mickey, Bridget and Natalie if you want to pray by name. :)

Here’s the summary:


Day 1: 444 words
Day 14: 456 words
Day 18: 687 words
Day 20: 1041 words
Day 33: 652 words
Day 56: 1162 words
Day 57: 2265 words
Day 58: 1447 words


Novel total: 9925 words
