Although, this wasn’t so simple.
I saved my document last night with a wordcount of 50,271.
I’ll write about my NaNoWritMo experience next week, but for now,
Today is marks the half way point for National Novel Writing Month, and as of last night, my word count is 23,387. I am right where I need to be and should hit 25,000+ today!
I had no idea what to expect from this challenge. A lot of the authors on the NaNo forums said to kiss your life goodbye for the month; you’ll be doing nothing but writing and sleeping. To be honest these comments kinda freaked me out. To date there have been a few days where I’ve written all day, but thankfully most days I’ve met my word count and moved on to other things (blogging, cleaning, cooking, etc.).
So far there have been some frustrating days and some exciting days. I’ve had a few characters take me by surprise, and a couple who are exactly what I dreamed they would be.
I’m still not sure what the outcome of the words I’m writing will be, but I’m glad to have taken on the challenge and am excited to see it through to the end.
I know I haven’t been writing here very much, but I have been writing.
I started a cooking blog today! Strawberries and Yogurt
I started NaNoWrMo today and got in 2102 words!
Tethered by Letters published my Flash Fiction piece “NO” as their monthly feature. Check it out here.
