Stay Tuned for a Post on My Interesting Rewards System for Finishing Both Books This Month (at least a skeletal draft of both and 50k in each)

  1. Bask in a bath of donuts
  2. Everything on the menu from my favorite donut vendor

And more statistics!

Trends Noticed: The more money I spent, the slower my words per minute (presumably I was busy eating), My words per minute were slower at night (I wrote faster in the morning), The longer I wrote for the fewer words I wrote overall (slower WPM)

And now a few charts:

Though I spent the most time writing on Sundays, this was not my most productive day.

**Fun facts on location: I went to 22 different locations to write, not including work or home. I went to the Neverending Bookstore 5 times, St. James 3 times, Verne & Wells 2 times, Issaquah Panera once, the Fall City Roadhouse 2 times, the AFK in Renton once, Bellevue Top Pot once, Costco once, CountrySide Donut House once, Daddy’s Donuts once, Factory Donuts once, North Bend Bar and Grill once, Spinderella once, and the Spotted Cow Once.

Writing at work was most productive for me, though I spent the most time and wrote the most words on my itty bitty Surface Tablet

How about a little about my book?

The Optimist Sees the Donut (For the Love of Donuts Book 2) & The Pessimist Sees the Hole (For the Love of Donuts Book 2)

Genre: Young Adult

Synopsis

Their friendship has been the one unbreakable thing, the one certainty in their lives, but Nichole Adams and Vanessa Smith are developing into their own persons and their individual life dramas distract them from each other.

Vanessa has never had many friends in her life and even though she wanted to stay friends with Nichole, she met new people in college and is moving on. She has school, she has social activities, and a new group of friends even though she can’t seem to find the right guy.

Nichole is jealous of Vanessa’s ease of everything in the real world. Nessa has no trouble with jobs, money, school, or getting and going places. Nichole, on the other hand was preemptively kicked out of her mom’s house after graduating high school and has been floundering ever since. The only thing she has easy in her life is flirting and getting dates, or at least a guy that will let her crash at his house. Nichole doesn’t always have the best of luck with men.

Forever hopeful that things will change, Nichole still clings to the hope that Vanessa will come back to their friendship and be the best friend from high school that Nichole misses. When guy after guy doesn’t work out for her, Vanessa changes more and more of her personality to attract the right guy, drifting farther and farther from who she really is. Something’s gotta give and this story of how friendships get off track, lies become reality, and bad luck tails bad choices will bring you in and around the little town of Sarasota, Florida that you grew to love in book one of the series – Donuts in an Empty Field.

One thought on “Nano November: Final Thoughts and Words – Word count: 101,522 +52k

  1. Wow, very thorough analysis, and quite fun to look at. When I divide your total words by total time spent for the donut series, I see that you really do average twice as many words as me per hour. I can write about 1000 an hour when pretty focused, and you averaged about 2000 per hour. If we divided mine by hour long I spent in front of my laptop it would be dismal, but being co-ML has a whole other set of duties – one of which is to allow and even encourage interruptions by fellow Wrimos at write-ins. I got most of my writing done just before bedtime in the sanctuary of my room. But I wouldn’t trade all the fun and encouragement exchanged at write-ins for anything!
