Week 2: The Mermaids Dive into NaNo

Check out the word counts of the mermaids below, and please share your progress and thoughts!

Remember, we are all here to cheer each other on!

After nine days, NaNo suggests a word count of 15,003 to be on track to reach the 50,000 goal.

Our word counts are as follows:

Denny: 12,659 words

Kim: 10,057 words

Carlene: 4,770 words

Alethea: 2,904 words

Pintip: 12,678 words

Mermaid total: 43,068 words

Wow! According to NaNo, none of the mermaids are “on track” quite yet . . . but I’m not worried! This month is about making progress on our manuscripts, and we are all certainly doing that, so I’m very proud of my fellow mermaids! Plus, just look at that mermaid total!! That’s the length of an entire novel!

Please share. Are you participating in NaNo this year? How is your progress?
