Four hundred and sixty words on the Metro this morning. Did you see how I wrote out “four hundred and sixty”, instead of simply writing “460”? That is what is called “maximizing your word count for National Novel Writing Month”. There, I did it again. I could have abbreviated National Novel Writing Month. Or used apostrophes. But I did not.
Anyway, that brings my total up to 7,190. That’s a pretty good total for four days plus a commute to work. And I’m just hitting the first big event in the story. I don’t know the literary term for it. It’s the big event early in the story that enables the rest of the story to happen. I think it’s going well.
