I am a happy user of an Underwood 5, an old typewriter from the beginning of the XX century. I use it to type letters, short stories, greeting cards, and labels.
I am now planning to try and type the next Nanowrimo.
On a computer I can blob out 2000 words a day in 90 minutes. It is also easy to keep track of progress, edit and copy-paste sections around.
My worry is that the typewriter, besides being inherently slower than a computer keyboard, will have an added management overhead. Nanowrimo amplifies this issue by adding a time constraint.
I am looking for an efficient way, or some non-digital tools to manage writing a 60,000+ words novel on a typewriter while keeping the writing ordered.
For instance: I thought of having a printed Excel table on the side, where I plan the novel in advance, and write down the page numbers as I write. It sounds like a nightmare if I retrospectively insert a chapter somewhere.
To give an idea of the specific scenarios that I am worrying about:
I need to add some foreshadowing before X happens: where is the page where X happen?
Retrospectively inserting a chapter somewhere.
I don't like this character name anymore, let me change it.
