Yep, that’s right. I’m participating in NaNoWriMo this year. This is the second year I’ve attempted to complete NaNoWriMo. Two years ago I got about 5,000 words in and lost all of my work. (BACK UP YOUR WORK!) So, I’m hoping that this year will at least be better than last time. I thought I would keep a log of my weeks of NaNoWriMo so that we could commiserate. I started late this year. I actually began on the 3rd rather than the 1st. So, that is where my log is going to begin.
Day 3 (11/03/17):
- This was technically my day one. I only wrote for about an hour, because I had a lot of planning to do. I decided to come up with a totally new story idea for this year’s NaNo. We will see if that was a mistake or not.
- Total Word Count: 300
Day 4 (11/04/17):
- I planned to get a lot of writing done on Saturday. However, that definitely did not work out for me. Today was kind of a wash.
- Total Word Count: 941
Day 5 (11/07/17):
- Because of my late start I knew I had to make up the loss of time at some point. Sunday, I used about 5 hours of the day to work on my novel. During this time I participated in two different word sprints with WordNerds on YouTube and those helped a lot. Eden and I have also been creating our own Word Sprints. If you are a NaNoWriMo’er then make sure you’re following our Twitter (@ThriceRead) so you can participate in our sprints. Altogether it was a good writing day for me.
- Total Word Count: 6053
I still have a lot of work to do so that I can catch up on my word count. I also need to get ahead before YallFest because I won’t be able to write very much there. So, here’s to fighting an uphill battle.
