It’s day 8 of NANO which means, to stay on track a total of 13336 words is the end goal.
That’s not thirteen thousand new words, it’s simply 1667 words added to the 11669 you hopefully already had.
Looks like an awfully lot of words, doesn’t it? But what 13336 words really equates to is that you’re 26.67% of the way to the 50,000 word goal. You’re past the one-forth mark!
Now for that other 73.33% of the story.
The trick today is to look forward, not backward. Sure it’s nice to know you’ve pounded out a good solid proportion of this tale but within seven more days you can be at the 50% mark…that comes due on November 15th.
