NaNoWriMo: Day 9 (2019)

9 Nov

This daily posting thing isn’t going well, is it?

Today’s word count: 3,395
Yesterday’s word count: 0
Thursday’s word count: 1,578
Wednesday’s word count: 912
Total word count: 15,067

As you can see, it’s been a bit hit-or-miss. Today was a big hit! But that’s because yesterday was a huge miss. I left the house before 5AM and didn’t get home until after 9PM. Other days have been okay, but nothing super stand-out.

Today my husband has been a savior. He did a bunch of house chores so I could concentrate on writing. He’s at the grocery as I type this. I think I’ll get a big chunk done tomorrow, too, so I’ll be a bit less stressed moving into the week when I’m busy.

Last time I did NaNo, I was super ahead all of the time. I was really motivated, too. This year isn’t as great and I’m struggling with that. I hope I can have a few more good days like today so I can be comfortably ahead instead of struggling to stay on track. I’m hoping to get a template to use for these posts going forward so I can do them more regularly, too. I’m too overwhelmed with NaNo to do some traditional posts so these might be all you get for the rest of November.

Until next time, write on.

    Keep up the good work! I’ve been dragging my feet a bit too. But that’s ok. We have plenty of time to catch up! 🙂

      Yes, for sure. I’m hoping I can create a buffer today. Fingers crossed. Happy reading!

    I feel your pain!! I am had a great START to last week, and then fizzled hard as the weekend came upon us. I’m definitely behind now, but not irreparably so. WE’VE GOT THIS!!!!

      I’m snowed in for the night. Sounds like a good chance to catch up. Happy writing!
