NaNoWriMo: Day 10 (2019)

10 Nov

Nothing ever works out the way you want it to, does it?

Today’s word count: 1,616
Total word count: 16,683

So I got less than the requisite 1,667 but I still hit the target for the day. Maybe I’ll squeeze in a few more words before bed, but I doubt it. I was exhausted today and I can’t point to a good reason. Maybe too much turkey last night? We had Friendsgiving and were out later than expected. Today I had a girls get-together which took away some writing time, too. I struggled with my exhaustion to even get this amount done.

I’m feeling OK about my story. My pacing is going pretty well. I’m at my first disaster scene and I’m about to really launch the story into motion so it’s exciting. I always try to stop in the middle of a scene so when I come back to the story, I’m excited about it and already have some momentum going. Hopefully, it gets me going quickly when I start again tomorrow.

I have a free evening tomorrow so I’ll try to get two chunks of writing done and I’ll make another attempt to build a buffer. This is getting hard but I’m glad I’m staying on pace. It’s good not to be behind.

Until next time, write on.

NaNoWriMo: My Day 10 2016

19 Nov

I’m going to just squeak by this whole thing, I think.

Today’s writing time (30 goal): 30
This Week’s writing time (210 goal): 270
Total time for the month (630 goal): 375

Finishing out the week with about an hour over goal! I’m pretty happy with that. The write-ins I’ve been able to go to were a big help this past week. I’m not sure I’ll be able to make any this week but I’ll try for one on Tuesday. The week of Thanksgiving is always rough with NaNo so I’ll see what time I can carve out as my family travels to Ohio to visit my brother.

Not much added today, really. I took out a good amount of ‘saying’ and was able to give one of my pseudo-villains a bit more of an edge. I think he needed it, he was kind of bland. I tried giving my silent character a bit more to say as well. I’ll probably have to add a scene for him to be really fleshed out. I’m not sure where I’ll do that. Hm.

Until next time, write on.
