Again I met the word count goal for the day and enjoyed the writing more!  I hope to have a little bit improved version of the start of Chapter 1 to post soon!

BIAM Day #9

With the new lower word count goal I had no trouble despite having to work meeting the goal.  I actually found that I enjoyed the writing a little more without having to try and hit a goal that was so hard to make while working all day.

Modifications to BIAM

Looking at my goal word count I realized that I had set it too high.  Becca Ross is on the fringe of being Young Adult and average word count for YA is well bellow that of my goal.  Additionally I feel like with my plan of the novel I am reaching to get to 120,000 words.  Instead I am going to make the word count 60,000 (a little bit above the goal for NaNoWriMo).  This is more in line with the 55,000 – 69,999 word count span of the average young adult novel.  This means the daily goal for word count is going to change to 2143 words per day.
