I know several bloggers are seizing the opportunity of NaNoWriMo to finally work on the novel they have always wanted to write. This may come one day for me as well, though I would first need to finish my second nonfiction book.
Which may not happen too soon, as I’m busy daily teaching French and translating into English articles for Orthodoxie.com, a French website dedicated to Christian Orthodox world news.
BUT translating can be as arduous as writing a novel, so I have decided to count for myself the number of words I write daily for this job, plus blog posts such as book reviews. As this is not technically a novel, I didn’t sign up into the official challenge.
I plan on doing a weekly wrap-up. My goal is an average of 750 words per working day over the month of November.
November 1: 691 w.
- On the situation of the Russian Orthodox Church of the Nativity of Christ and Saint Nicholas in Florence
- Romanian website reveals two reasons why the Romanian Patriarchate would be reluctant to Ukrainian autocephaly
November 2: 850 w.
November 3: 199 w.
November 5: 707 w.
November 6: 1028 w.
November 7: 990 w.
TOTAL in 6 days = 4,465 w.
Average so far per working day = 744 w.
