A Week’s Worth

One week into NaNoWriMo/No Shave November and I’m showing a bit of growth in each area. In order to hit 50,000 words in one month a writer would need to average about 1,700 words per day. I had an 18,000 word head start, which means I’d need to average a thousand words a day. After one week I should have added approximately 7,000 words, which would have put me halfway to 50,000; I managed to get 2,500 words written in five days. I did hit 1,000 on one day, but I was well below the mark on the other four. To make up the difference I would need to average 1,300 words a day from here on out. I don’t want to throw in the towel after one week, but I don’t see that happening.

I’m in a similar predicament with my beard – it hasn’t grown out as much as might be expected in a week, but I’m liking the stubbly look. I may not go for the full-grown beard after all. I may not complete either one of my challenges this month, but I’m going to keep at them for at least another week.
