Stick a fork in me... I'm done. My word count for le werewolf novel is 13,557, and for both the novel and the collaboration a total of 19,952. For both to reach 50,000, there are only 80,048 words to go... that's just 3,481 words per day. Piece o' cake!
I actually wrote 3,216 words on "Wolves of the World" today and did at the rate of about 804 words per hour - did it between 18:00 and 22:00. I a pleased with my effort.
Well, I was pleased with my effort until I went to put my numbers into the NaNoWriMo website and discovered that one of my writing buddies had just crossed 50,000 words. That's 7,143 words per day for 7 days. Now I did 6,800 words my first day out the gate, but sustaining that pace, even my 3,200 words-a-day pace of today for seven days borders on inconceivable.
