What is NaNo, if not word count increasing?

1694 words during the first day.

As I realized I wanted to change some stuff in the second scene during the night, I just wrapped that into an alt 1 tag, added the new version with an alt 2 tag.

So now I'm at 1888 words (which might be my full tally for day 2, as I won't be able to write after work today).

1942 for day 1, 2107 for day 2 - I would've liked to write more, but I think I'm coming down with a virus of some kind so focusing doesn't feel great right now.

Today at ~1,700 or a total of ~2,800 net words. I know I probably backspaced through a hundred or so typed words yesterday and today given I'm unable to completely turn off my inner editor that says that phrase is wrong and must have different words right now, not later.

(I can't bring myself to un-contract words in dialogue... for the humans, anyway.)
