@Sharm: I see. Well, I'm sorry, but I'm not a doctor, so I can't be of any use...

Do you think that a chapter with 1700-2000 words is good enough?

Depends on how many chapters you're writing. If you're going to write 30 chapters, and write a chapter a day, then that'll work out just fine.

I just broke 5k with my second chapter today. Yay. (Still behind on the graphs, but whatever. My plan is to finish by the 25th or earlier by writing around 2.5K/day as opposed to 1.7K.)

I am only on 10,716. I might have to delete some chapters that I wrote and re-write them from scratch. What a fail :( :D

Well, don't delete them unless they totally don't gel with your ending. Otherwise, keep 'em until November's over so they count toward your overall word count!

I've just written chapter 3, which puts me at 7.7K. Here's hoping I can play the catch-up game this week!

P.S. Has anyone posted their book to upliterate.com? I'd be interested in seeing your novels (after I finish mine, of course :p ).

I'm done with all 50000 words^^

I'm seriously happy right now, especially it was my first time participating. I've never thought writing so much in such a short time would be so difficult Oo

Congrats! After most of the month, I've FINALLY caught up! I was SO behind...Let's see if I can STAY that way...

Happy birthday, Firemaster!

I've given up. I underestimated the power of the dark side. Having one day off a week, multiple overnight shifts, and weekly clopening shifts killed my brain. I barely passed 31k.

I can't even blame family Thanksgiving celebrations, because I've not only had to work through the entire week of the holiday, but also through the weekend my family used to get together beforehand, because they couldn't do it the actual day.

I wanted to participate but by the time I realized it was November already I kinda...dropped the idea.
Maybe I'll shift my NaNoWriMo back to December?

Well, you can still right it on December, however, it would not count for the event since it only happens on the whole month of November.

That was fast Black Rose! I am still stuck at 47,167 and it is already the 30th. Hopefully, I'll finish it before midnight.

Can't blame you on that CaptainProton. I also have moments of almost giving up. Too much work and homeworks, along with house chores. There are also those pesky exams that takes a lot of my time. I can definitely say that it was hard to steel my self and proceed writing :)

EDIT: NaNo is finished and I failed to write 3k words :o I fell asleep while I was working on it yesterday :(

I usually don't enjoy survival games, but I absolutely love Conan Exiles.
Basically Everyone: Dont make a long game the first time. Me: I guess i'll make a REALLY long game in that case >:p
I've developed a habit of thanking cleaning ladies for their work.
Sorry Aerith... I will abandon your shoes... :guffaw:
Spent a whole bunch of time today reworking the area in the video because someone said it was too illusory. So I reworked it so it changes less, moved the grass up to the same level as the player.... And found enough extra resources to make the grass moves when the player touches it. Also lots more water, because it looks amazing. I'll probably put up a short updated video later today.
