Ice, ice, ice!

It's raining here, but temperatures are low enough that there's icicles growing everywhere.

I don' t think it's that cold but it's cold enough that while biking back from the main quad (around 5 minutes), the bike lock managed to grow a thin layer of ice.

I've got about 4 hours to finish 4K. Eehh, cutting it a bit close.

Oh, and lastly, happy birthday, Karen-senpai. I love you.

NaNoWriMo 2006: Post-even writeup

Progress report chart:

Collapse )

Note the sudden increase in speed at the end? Hehe, yeah. Thanksgiving break. Day 21 is actually inaccurate: I forgot to submit my novel for a while, and it was actually stuck around 1.5K, then 3K, then 5K for some time.

The most impressive chunk of writing was the 25-26 bit - 4746 started the night before, then 12903 the next day.

And finally, 7777 words on the last day. The number was not intentional, I promise you.

My novel, since it was still written really, really rapidly, is not a example of my best work. (In fact, large portions are just really terrible.) So I'm keeping it friends-only, in the way that you can come to me and request it, and I'll send it to you.

[append] Little statistics:
In printed form, my story comes out to 109 pages.
NaNoWriMo reports that it is 50091 words. This does not include my "dedication to" statement, nor my "ok, we hit 50K, stopping here and adding Fantasticks lyrics." bit.
If I write really quickly, I can almost hit 1K per 15 minutes. But on average, it's around 1.5K per hour, maybe slightly more.
I prefer writing at a desk, for longer periods of time. But the bed works too, until the laptop starts to burn the lap. And there's just no comfortable reclining position.
My spelling sucks and my vocabulary is sadly lacking. If I had better spelling, I could type faster. And if I could remember my character's names.
M$Word reports 50,270 words, including dedication and post-story note.
There was a total of one male human, two female human, one female alien-dog thing, one "male" book, one male dwarf. This does not include the non-essential characters.
