Life of a NaNoWriMo Rebel: Week 4

1 Dec

It’s over! Congratulations to everyone who participated in any capacity; you’ve added words even if it’s not 50,000 of them. My rebellious nature continued and here’s what I’ve got:


Day 24: Nothing

Day 25: 1 hour (write-in)

Day 26: Nothing

Day 27: 1 hour

Day 28: Nothing

Day 29: Nothing

Day 30: 1.5 hours

Again, spotty but good enough! I was in California visiting family over Thanksgiving so all my writing was done on the plane there and back. Kudos to my husband for dealing with my elbows in his lap.

It’s not a full NaNo and this is bothering me, but at the same time I’m fine with it. I got about 32,000 words which is huge! And this draft feels a lot more flushed out than my previous one did. I’ve been able to add scenes, smooth character progression, and I’ll be changing the ending so things are about to go crazy!

I’m really proud of this and I’m not going to call myself a NaNo Winner per say, but I met my goal (on average) for every day this month. I’m really excited about this and I’m hoping I can make writing time a more regular part of my schedule throughout the year. I’ve got a lot in my head I’m dying to get out to share with the world.

How was your NaNo? How many words did you get?

Until next time, write on.
