My current tally is a little over 45,000, which means I am above par, but I haven't been for the whole month.
What has the experience so far taught me? It's not impossible to write a novel in a month.
What else has it taught me? I've practically done it before.
My word count and the time I've spent writing hasn't been significantly higher or lower than any other given month. Being a rebel in my approach has helped me a lot. When one story or character stops talking to me, I've jumped onto another project. Again, this is my usual approach to writing.
I'm aiming to push to be done with the 50k by the time I got back to work on Monday. Hopefully, I'll do it.
Wish me luck!
