Maybe this Social was not such a good idea.

I wrote words!

New total: 26.770 words as of May 24th.

I think I am slightly behind if I want to get to my monthly goal. But I'll get there!

2000 words for 2 hours editing, and 500 words for the several hours I spent looking at notes and trying to wrap my head around my novel. So 2500 total. Hoping to get the last 2500 of my goal in the last few days of the month.

Wait, you can count editing? What about research?

@DaVinci Yep we count editing. Most people do the NaNo standard of 1 hour = 1000 words but feel free to count it however makes you comfortable. Regarding research, if you are taking notes/creating outlines towards a project then we count it. The point is to encourage as much writing as possible.

From the Rules docs:

What am I allowed to count for this challenge?

Any words you write between March and August are fair game, as long as it's fictional writing. You can write in any language you want. Role playing posts, campaign settings, outlines, worldbuilding notes and fanfiction can all be counted for your word count, as long as they are written during the challenge.

 

Forum rules like "only fantasy" or "no roleplaying" don't apply to what words you are allowed to count for the challenge.

@Penguinball

I might count the editing. I'm 15 chapters (43,477 words) into editing a 130,000-word novel along with the one I'm rewriting from scratch.
Counting research would be cheating. The current novel involves the Race for Space. I work as a guide in a Museum dedicated to that. So, I can combine studying for my job with novel research - over 40 hours per week. 😁
