I'm not very bright.... Mild illness caused me to "take a few days off", so now I'm behind again. 3k down today before bed, another 5k in the morning. One day I'll learn.

Still, at 23k this is my most successful NaNo ever! Cheesy

27624. Couldn`t write much (or anything at all), since I started work at the christmas market )= . 48 hours of work in 5 days time tends to kill off any other productivity at home. I have two days off now though, so let`s see how much I can catch up XD

It is sometime in the future. The year is not important because humanity has, thanks to the wonders of modern war, vanished into history.

This is a story of when Roombas inherited the Earth.

Where are you at?

For example, my story is at the "first pinch" that is the first time it looks like the good guys are going to lose.

Next for my story comes the twist, and then another pinch, and at last the resolution.

In my case 50K will probably get me past the twist, the whole story will likely run to 115K words.

Kevin

30,609 words. Progress is slow, both in terms of word quantity and storyline. I got way off-story for a long while, though I`m slowly pulling it back in a better direction. That`s what editing is for, I suppose. Now to get my word count up again T_T

Hey keep at it Longeye. You can still make it if you hussle!

Awhile back I'd emailed Viral asking, among other things, whether or not he would be kosher with me trying to make this book for profit, if he would host the ebook versions on viralgamespublishing, and if he had any other projects in the works I could possibly help with. This morning I got word back, and Viral seems to be excited about the idea of somebody doing a book based on the thing he'd done and he's agreed to host the e-book versions on his site.

No word on if he's kosher with the idea of me making money off the book or not but the fact I would have endorsement from the setting creator and be hosted on a site that gets way more traffic than mine is still pretty spiffy news.

What's Done:
(save for yet more editing, seriously editing never stops)
Cover Art (It's simple but I've been told it looks good.)
Prologue
Chapter's 1 - 7
After Word

What needs finishing:
Chapter's 8 - Whatever (thinking 12 but I'm not sure. Totally doable.)
The character sheets and other reference material
make sure conversion to ebook formats don't botch everything up.

Thanks for the encouragement Lazaras, and congrats on getting a go ahead from Viral! Cheesy

After a blazing stint and 7k written in one day I'm back up to pace now Smiley

Well done all of you who are ahead Wink

Never underestimate the value in these other activities. You'd be amazed at how the plot threads can settle just right when you're doing something unrelated.

Gosh, you all seem to be doing extremely well! (I'm a late starter, but still only at 7,000-some-odd words.) There's no way I'm making it to 50k by the end. Apparently schools hate the idea of giving students enough free time to use their imaginations.

Two more chapters left.

No actually a lot more than that, but two more then I'm splitting off the version that's going into the lulu competition from what's next since I've got a long way ahead. Just happens I'm almost at a good enough stopping point it'll feel like a complete thing.
