Here is the thing: it is not how many words one writes which is really important, it is the quality of those words which matter. Obviously, I could easily have flicked off 500-1000 sub-par words last night, as I am sure many Nanowrimo participants may have done, but for moi, it is more important to produce a superior piece of fiction. Those in the Know are quite familiar with my work ethic and my attention to detail. In short, I am a perfectionist and nothing but the best will do.
All right, yes, it is true. I did not write a single word last night.
This morning, however, is a different story! I already have 116 high-quality words on the word processor, which is obviously a win! From little acorns mighty oaks will grow and all that!
