Graph of Nanowrimo word count

It isn’t that I’ve never tracked my word count before, but I’ve never looked at the words on a graph like THIS. I find it interesting because in plotting you want significant stages (act 1, act 2, etc.) to fall at predictable places in the story. This graph looks useful. I can see that I’m approaching a point where I should have a major turning point. Hmmm.

Why yes, I am writing this one by the seat of my pants. Fun. I haven’t done this in a long time. I have a general idea of the arc of the novel, where it is going, how it will generally end, but all of the fine details, the characters, the threads… this is a blast.

Or insanity.
