After living in rural Ithaca (population: 30,000) for nearly four months, I found New York City to be QUITE a different experience. We went there this weekend, and between playing away during the game vs Columbia, marching in the Sy Katz parade, eating in the Cornell Club, and wandering around Grand Central and Times Square (and, of course, writing my novel), it was an amazing trip by all standards.
Anyways, novel-writing progress so far:
|Day||Words Written||Accumulated Word Count|
*Spent in/near NYC.
Just added the first badge on my blog:
I have so far managed to follow the 1667 words quota per day needed to reach 50,000 words in 30 days. I’m uncertain how much longer this will last because I feel very burnt out now. On Day 11 I wrote a 1766 word English paper and on Day 12 an 1862 word history paper in addition to the novel quota. On Day 13, the day of the trip, I had to write in strange places (at a hotel, at the Cornell Club, on the bus), but filled the quota. Yesterday, Day 14, I felt very unmotivated, just passing the 1667 word quota at 11:50 pm. I almost feel like taking a break for today.
But a writer must keep writing!
