Another writing month begins

Well, fresh from my near miss with NaNoWriMo I have got straight back to it writing wise although most of tonight was taking up on submissions. I sent four out

The Patternmaker's Daughter - 2
The Intersection - 1
Against the Fall of Empire -1

They took rather a time to get sorted but it could be worth it.

So when I started writing I was already running short on time and managed only one scene today - 608 words bring the total up to 75,772.

NaNoWriMo taught me a few things. One of which is more of a reinforcement that a new lesson but it'll do. I like lists. I like a certain order. So I have decided I am going to keep a log of daily writing in terms of word count and books/stories being written. How sad is that? Never mind, it will keep me happy. So I have a new spreadsheet and the first day's entry is logged.

Anyway for anyone who is interested - here's my chart for November (warning - it will be very dull reading)

Good to read about your process, Edmund. Glad you're sending things out! Fingers crossed you get some acceptances back. I'm intrigued with your novel project!

Thanks for the kind words

By the novel project - do you mean the bawdy sci-fi noir detective story, with creative expletives, set on a space station?
