NaNoWriMo in December!

I couldn’t do NaNoWriMo last month because I was busy trying to promote The Last Winter Moon, so I decided to do it this month with a brand new  standalone book, (WIP title) The House with Two Faces!

I actually started on November 28 (the day before Final Fantasy XV came out) and wrote for a total of 34 days, as of today, the last day of 2016.  And I’m probably going to be a bit more editing later today, but the word count for today is over 1,667 so I’m content with that 🙂

I reached 50,000 words on day 20, and finished the first draft of the book on day 23, for an average of 2,691 words for the first draft.

On the days of editing, I averaged 1,897 words per day.

The lowest word count I wrote for the month was 517 on day 24, right after I finished the first draft.

The most I wrote was yesterday at 7,127 words.  (I’m not even sure how I did it.)

Now for a cool graph!

And other nerdy statistics.  Yay nerdiness!

I also “drew” some things for research.  Here’s the character concept art I sketched a few weeks ago.  Thinking of making Paula curvier though.  Her figure is too boyish.

And I made a diagram of the theater/house 🙂 It’s not quite to scale, though.  The doors got bigger toward the end.  Heh heh…

I also did the NERDIEST THING and create the house in the Sims 2 (I got the whole thing free on Origin!).  I couldn’t furnish it right, but hey, the structure is there 😀 (Tip: It’s easier to make a house in the Sims if you have a layout on hand instead of just drawing walls hoping for the best.)

That’s it for now 😀 Back to more editing, I guess >_<

Have a great new year, everyone!! 😀
