NaNoWriMo: Day 5 (2019)

5 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: 2,133
Total word count: 9,182

It’s not the day I was hoping for, but I’m still happy with it.

I didn’t make it to the write-in today. My husband got home later than planned and I made a big dinner so there was no way I was making it to the library by 7. I also had to cut my writing a little short this morning to get to the polls when they opened at 7 and vote before work. Though that did allow me to come straight home and get a little more writing done, so it’s not all bad.

I’m afraid I’m not pacing the story well. I’m moving forward pretty quickly and I’m not yet to my first plot disaster, but I’m getting close and I think it will move really fast from there and I’m worried about ending up short of 50k. I’m not sure what I’d do if that happened. Maybe write a sub-plot and not bother to integrate it into the story? Maybe write a short story that’s completely unrelated but gets me the word count? There are options.

I don’t think tomorrow will be as successful, but I should be optimistic, right?

Until next time, write on.

NaNoWriMo: My Day 5 2016

14 Nov

Nothing today!

Today’s writing time (30 goal): 0
This Week’s writing time (210 goal): 100
Total time for the month (630 goal): 205

I had a book club meeting tonight so I didn’t get anything written. It’s also medical open enrollment so that’s been preoccupying most of my time at home. I’m going to another write-in tomorrow so I’m optimistic that I can get a lot done. I’m almost through it the first time anyway which FEELS AWESOME!

Until next time, write on.
