NaNoWriMo Day 9 -- 2826 / 9000 (31%)

I have managed to meet my target so far this month.

Writing days: 9/9
Average no. of words written each day: 314

Today is Tuesday and therefore the day for the big Co-op shop. I had a voucher for £8 off if I spent over £80 so I chose a bit trolley and stocked up on non-perishables to make sure I reached a high enough total. The Co-op was quiet and though there are still gaps on the shelves (e.g. no white Basmati rice, none of G's usual instant coffee), I got everything I needed.

I only managed 150 words of the story today, but as I'd done more than my target yesterday, my average is still over 300 words per day, which is fine. And, though I didn't write all that many story words, I did make some useful notes during breakfast so I know what happens in the next couple of scenes. It looks like each chapter will be 1500 words so the whole thing looks like being a novella of around 27,000 words.
