Tomorrow marks the final day of Camp NaNoWriMo. The good news: I’m on-track to meet my word count goal of 40,000 words. However, Dragon Relic will be only about half-complete and, of course, unedited. Granted, I designed my word count goal to be realistic and, therefore, I knew I wouldn’t finished the novel by April 30th.
I’ve been facing a problem though. The visual goal tracker that NaNoWriMo uses is really helpful for me. I need it. Without that graph I don’t write as efficiently. Perhaps one day I will, but I’m not there yet.
Today I realized how soon I’d be without this precious writing aid… and I panicked.
Fortunately, after a little scouting around on the internet, I found WriteTrack by David S. Gale. It is free. It is also based on NaNoWriMo’s tracker! In other words, it’s a perfect match for me, and I’m no longer panicking.
I’ve already set May’s word count goal. It’s only 20,000 words for now because I need to lighten the pace for a while. I’m thrilled because this means that, come Monday, I will continue writing as usual with no disruptions!
