NaNoWriMo: My Day 8

24 Nov

Back on the horse. I got a whole hour in today so that makes up for missing yesterday. In addition to sticking with my goal, I’m trying to see how I can fit writing into my daily life to try and form a better habit of it. Two birds, one stone.

I got to page 43 (from the second draft, a total of 119 pages) so I’m 10 pages farther than before! There was also a lot of future planning and moving of scenes today so it feels like a ton more than that. I’ll hit a point soon where I’m adding big plot points and scenes so I guess my progress will ‘slow down’ by this metric, but the word count will hopefully show my progress.

I’m at 50586 words (from 52962 in D2), adding a whopping 39 to my total! Considering how much I had to cut and re-write to move one scene, I’m pretty happy with that. I’ve been cutting out a lot of my ‘showing’ as well. Hoping to make the big jump to where D2 was and surpass it before the end of the month!

It’s likely I won’t get much done tomorrow on Thanksgiving-Eve. My grandmother and brother are in town so we’re going to dinner and I then have to pack for my big Texas trip. That gives me a plane ride to write, though! I’m looking forward to it; the hubby knows not to talk to me while we’re in the air so I can get a bunch done and have time for the nieces and nephew while we’re there.

Until next time, write on.

    Sounds like some amazing progress! You’re very consistent and seem very motivated. I on the other hand, gave up long ago.

      As long as you write something, it’s not a failure. Great job having the guts to start!
