NaNoWriMo Grand Total       16,767

As you can see, I fell well short of the 50 thousand word count that NaNoWriMo challenges us to produce in a month.

The experience has convinced me that I don’t enjoy writing with an eye on word count. It feels forced and approaches drudgery. I didn’t even try to hit the numbers this last week. I was much happier with the quality of the results.

My average daily word count tops off regularly somewhere between 500 and 600 with my preferred rolling editing style. If I’m ever going to up the count, it will have to happen naturally as a result of continuous writing.

No more trying to force it. No more NaNoWriMo for me.
