I Should Give Seminars

As those of you with a calendar know, we’re closing in on the end of National Novel Writing Month (also known as November).  I usually waiting until Nano is done to share my progress, but I thought it would be interesting to see what it looks like in comparison to part of the NaNoWriMo community:

That’s me on top, and one of the regions I’ve chosen as sort of close to me (the other being, um, “other”) below.  Note how my progress is steady as a rock, gradually pulling ahead of the pace needed to make 50,000 words by the end of the month, while those in Syracuse at large start fast and shamefully fall off – you can be assured that other regions are similar on average.  Obviously, other nano people could learn from me, as far as wordcount progress (someone else will have t0 give the seminar on how to produce a quality draft that doesn’t need to be completely rewritten – I can’t teach you everything, people).

  1. You are an inspiration to us all. 🙂 I can never seem to do the “slow but steady” thing myself. I burst out of the gate and get tons of words done for five days, then I have to do my real job for a few days, than I get tons of words done for another five days… rinse, lather, repeat. I feel more comfortable having a healthy lead and staying there, and the one time I actually fell behind the curve gave me serious anxiety!
