Nanowrimo Day 17

Word count today: 34,233. It's past midnight as I write this, the reason being that we had the Thursday Night Club get-together at the Pals.

I'm surprised I managed to get in my 2,000 words today. The day was packed -- I had a meeting with Mr. Kim of the Mechanical Engineering department in the morning, and animation classes for the whole of the afternoon -- but I managed to squeeze in 700 words after dinner. I guess I'm coming to the exciting parts and the story is just getting easier to write. I hope I keep this streak up.

Inez Ponce de Leon, veteran Wrimo, is already past 120,000 words. Grrrr! She's making the rest of us look bad. But then again, she does show the extent of what's possible.

Maybe next year, if I decide to go through this madness all over again, I'll be an early finisher. This year, I'll be just happy to finish.


  1. Inez, I must point out, focuses on the writing of novels. I'm not surprised that she can hit numbers like that, really. :)

  2. Indeed, she already has a book published with Must look up that service one time.

    All the same, it's a feat to marvel at.

    Do you know the lady?

  3. Well, Inez also focuses on her job, but is a "sabog" kid really, so she focuses on her job, her novel, her other novel, her other novels, and how to get her life in order, hehe:)

    Go Dominique! Keep writing! Ypu're close to 50 k already! It should be easy for you!

    And sorry, I don't mean to make Pinoys look bad. It's just that, well, I didn't think the novel would be so LONG, and it isn't finished yet. Que horror, qur barbaridad!

  4. He-eey, great to hear from you, Inez! Congratulations on getting past the 100,000-mark so quickly. Yup, I do mean it when I say that you make the rest of us look bad...but I mean that in the best way possible. I hope to get a glimpse of your novel when you think it's ready.
