NaNoWriMo: Day 17 (2019)

17 Nov

I’m finally ahead! We’ll see if this lasts longer than one day.

Today’s word count: 2,641
Total word count: 29,408

I was able to write in three chunks today and I think that really helped me push through on the word count. I made up for a few days of minimal writing and even got ahead! This is a lot more than I expected.

I’m trying to slow the story down and it’s going pretty well. I’m developing a relationship with my protagonist and his love interest slowly now. I probably should have started working it in earlier, but better late than never, right? Maybe this will keep me going to 50k.

Tomorrow will be tight. I’ll get some writing in before my book club and some after, but I’m not sure it will be enough. Fingers crossed my cushion is enough!

Until next time, write on.

NaNoWriMo: My Day 17 2016

26 Nov

There’s nothing like a last-minute catch-up to round out the week, huh?

Today’s writing time (30 goal): 90
This Week’s writing time (210 goal): 210
Total time for the month (630 goal): 585

 

I was spending time with my family out-of-town for the holiday so I didn’t get anything written Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday. My husband is driving us home now and I utilized the time to write for 90 minutes! I’m hot-spotting my phone to put this post up. Yay technology.

I’m getting really close to finishing my second time through the story. I’m fairly certain I’ll finish doing it before the end of November. That leaves me until my class starts again in February to do some work on editing with an editing workbook I have at home. It will be fun to work through it. But for the rest of the day, it’s more family time with his side. Tomorrow, I’m thinking a write-in? We’ll see

Until next time, write on.
