November 20: You should be past 30,000 words now. If not, you’ll need to adjust your daily word count so you can meet your 50,000 word goal within the next ten days. That’s okay. I once started NaNoWriMo on the 11th of November and had my 50,000 words by the end of the day on the 30th. My word count was like 4500 a day, and I didn’t write on Sundays at that time.
