Apologies, this is a day late, I know. In week three, I hit 50,000 words! My aim really is to finish my first draft by the end of November now.
Read on for my little diary about my thoughts on my novel and the amount of writing I got done each day in week three.
Day 16 – 40,619 words
I struggled towards the end of week 2, and ended up not writing very much at all over the weekend. I got my mojo back a little bit and managed to get back on top of my word count.
Day 17 – 42,576 words
I think I’m officially over the mini episode of writer’s block I had over the weekend. I could have written more today but had so much else to do, so hopefully the words will come out just as easily tomorrow. We’ll see.
Day 18 – 44, 349 words
Definitely feeling like I’m entirely over my writers block, the only problem is that I have so many other things to do that I don’t have time to have a beast of a writing session.
Day 19 – 47,082 words
I’m so close to reaching 50,000 words!
Day 20 – 50,404 words
50,000 words! Yes! So, I’ve ‘won’ NaNoWriMo, but I would really like to try and finish my first draft entirely by the end of November. It’s ambitious, but if I can write 50,000 words in three weeks, it’s not exactly insurmountable.
Day 21 – 50,582 words
Tom is working away in the week at the moment, so it’s really hard for me to feel ok about sitting down for an hour and writing on the weekend, which is why my word count was so bad today.
Day 22 – 52,407 words
Ok, so I feel a little less bad about sitting down and writing for an hour. Tom brought an Xbox One yesterday, which means I can write while he’s playing that, and not feel bad about it.
Today was one of those days where you start writing and all of a sudden you’ve written almost 2,000 words. I had to recheck my word count a few times because it really didn’t feel like I’d written that much.
How’s NaNoWriMo going for you?
