NaNoWriMo: Day 4 (2019)

4 Nov

I’m going to try to post daily about my progress to keep myself honest and you all updated on how it’s going.

Today’s word count: 1,678
(Yesterday’s word count: 2,079)
Total word count: 7,049

Maybe every other day is a more realistic cadence for me to be posting about this. I seem to keep forgetting on odd-numbered days.

Yesterday went well. I had a lot of downtime between appointments on Sunday so I wrote in three chunks and it helped me go forward. Today was a lot harder. I had to go hole up at a coffee shop after work before I met a friend for dinner and then again after I got home, finishing up just now with some sore shoulders from sitting all day.

I plan to get some writing done tomorrow morning and maybe go to my first write-in in the evening. I usually get a lot done at those and it would be good to have another 2k+ day.

The plot is moving well. I think I’m a little behind where I thought I’d be, but I think there are some other parts that are going to move faster than I anticipated so I’m running with it. Once I hit 50k, I can slow down, but I don’t want to stop until the story is done. It’s better to be over than under, right?

Until next time, write on.

NaNoWriMo: My Day 4 2016

13 Nov

My first write-in! I made such good progress today.

Today’s writing time (30 goal): 100
This Week’s writing time (210 goal): 100
Total time for the month (630 goal): 205

I spent about two hours at the write-in and spent a good amount of it actually writing. Actually, I’m two pages from the end of going through my book! I think I’ll go through it once more this month so I have a complete and consistent go through this month. There are some targeted edits I want to make (dialogue consistency for example) and I have an editing book that I want to use to start going through it, too. I’ll have to get that book out and start working through it!

I’m really excited about this progress. I know a lot of my speed was how excited I was to read about the end. I’m purposefully not finishing it today so I have a reason to break it all out tomorrow!

Until next time, write on.
