your project is a living entity. to “win” NaNoWriMo, you simply write to the number of words required and submit your manuscript. You are free to go back to it and re work it until you are satisfied, or not. You can write in any sequence that works for you. The length required is actually small for a novel: 50,000 words, about 175 pages. This is 1667 words per day. If you aim for 2000 words per day, you will be able to skip a day here and there. That was essential to me, with holidays and guests etc. I did not expect much, writing to such a deadline, but ended up very happy to have completed the project, with more confidence in my ability. Good luck to you, and enjoy the process.
