NaNoWriMo: Day 11 (2019)

11 Nov

I’m taking this whole thing one day at a time. I wish I was looking ahead more, but it’s not looking good.

Today’s word count: 2 090
Total word count: 18,773

I got done what I needed to for the day, but I didn’t get ahead as I would have liked to. I’m just not feeling very motivated to get further ahead than the day requires to keep me on pace. I keep thinking an exciting scene will push me ahead, but it’s not doing it.

I’m still nervous about finishing the story before 50k. I think I’m rushing ahead too fast. I’m sure there are scenes that belong in the book that I’m missing but I don’t know what they are right now so they’re going to stay hidden. That’s what editing is for.

Tomorrow is going to be hard. I have a workout before work, I’m working late, and I have a meeting right after work. I doubt I get any writing done tomorrow. Maybe a few hundred words, but I’ll be behind by the end of tomorrow. I’m trying to be optimistic but it isn’t going well.

Until next time, write on.

NaNoWriMo: My Day 11 2016

20 Nov

Just enough today.

Today’s writing time (30 goal): 30
This Week’s writing time (210 goal): 30
Total time for the month (630 goal): 405

 

And so the next week begins! I’m going to be cutting this close again this week. A write-in Tuesday will help a lot. I got in just the needed 30 minutes today. Between a 10K race this morning and Friendsgiving tonight (best tradition ever), I don’t have a lot of time, but I got in my 30 minutes.  Good enough!

I added a bit of the character I’m flushing out. It’s hard to write a ‘bad guy’ who’s funny and light-hearted! I think I’ll have to add him in more in the second half of the book. I’m almost at the half-way mark now. My big focuses are consistency and character development, especially of my secondary characters. I’m going to be confident and say I’ve got my primary characters more or less figured out.

Tomorrow will probably be very minimal writing, I’m going to a big local hockey event. Exciting for me, not my editing time. Tuesday should make all the difference.

Until next time, write on.
