Today I managed 1875 words and I'm pretty happy with that. Much of the opening scene had written itself in my head and fortunately it flowed out when I put my fingers on the keyboard. Interestingly enough, I was able to write with the radio on in the background, so I could keep tabs on the US election. I already know I'll have editing to do on the scenes I wrote, but much of that will be word choice etc - one of the things that slows me down is trying to figure out if certain words were in common use during the time period in which I'm writing. I hate jarring readers with something that's obviously not right. But I've learned when doing NaNo just to keep going and go back later to fix those kinds of things.
So, if you're doing NaNo too - how is it going?
If not NaNo, how are thing with your ms?
