Everything is on track with my nanowrimo project this year. I feel quite happy - that contented glow of sticking to your writing guns each and every day makes this November seem warmer than it actually is. I do a little more than I should (they recommend only 1,677 words a day to make the 50,000-word target).
It takes me a little under an hour. Then I leave the work and carry on editing Tales Tell Tales. I thought that maybe I would be in trouble trying to write a new book while editing an old one, but that's not the case. It's pretty easy to separate the two. I just stop writing when my quota is reached (about 1,800 words sounds good) and move onto other things.
Sometimes I want to keep writing but I know the book will still be there tomorrow, so I leave it alone until then. Anyone do the candle at both ends thing? Editing one book while writing another?
