More novelling! I should really stop doing this to myself!

Okay. So, I was a little bit daunted by the fact that I've taken on the task of writing another 50,000 word novel for the craft_olympics, which means a novel in 16 days as opposed to 30.

Today, though, I decided to take a good look at my NaNoWriMo stats and see how long it took me to actually write THAT book. I knew that I started late, and managed to finish early, but what I didn't realize is that from when I started writing and when I finished writing?

17 days.

And if I don't count days where I was lazy and didn't write a damn thing?

I wrote that freaking book in 12 days.

Now, when you read it, I think that is glaringly obvious, but it does give me a lot of hope! Especially since, compared to where I was on my fifth day of actual writing for NaNoWriMo, I'm AHEAD.

Here's a cool table I made to show the comparison of everything!

EDIT: I've been making updates daily, and putting the winning word count for the day in blue. My goal is to get to at least where I was in my NaNo for the rest of the time, but I need to get a little bit ahead since I have one less day to do it in.
