Day 20 rounded out nice with a total overall word count of 22803 for a daily word count of 3003. I spent part of the word count writing a new section of verse to eventually replace a section – written during a word sprint – that I did not like.
Day 21 did indeed feature Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 1. By some miracle, I did manage to carve out a decent bit of writing time to bring the overall word count up to 25744 with a daily word count of 2941. Wrote another section of verse which may end up replacing something else that was written. A little torn on the matter because each set can pivot the overall story line one way or the other. It will depend on where the story ends up taking itself.
Day 22 felt like I had done nothing with the story. That my main accomplishments were making 3 pecan pies, running some errands and a visit from the hair color fairy. Even so, the overall word count is now up to 28658 with a daily word count of 2914. Well on my way to catching up with the NaNoWriMo word count. So much so that I may actually finish NaNoWriMo this year. Very exciting. Although, Thanksgiving weekend still has the potential to put a major damper on that progress.
