NaNoWriMo: Day 9 (2019)

9 Nov

This daily posting thing isn’t going well, is it?

Today’s word count: 3,395
Yesterday’s word count: 0
Thursday’s word count: 1,578
Wednesday’s word count: 912
Total word count: 15,067

As you can see, it’s been a bit hit-or-miss. Today was a big hit! But that’s because yesterday was a huge miss. I left the house before 5AM and didn’t get home until after 9PM. Other days have been okay, but nothing super stand-out.

Today my husband has been a savior. He did a bunch of house chores so I could concentrate on writing. He’s at the grocery as I type this. I think I’ll get a big chunk done tomorrow, too, so I’ll be a bit less stressed moving into the week when I’m busy.

Last time I did NaNo, I was super ahead all of the time. I was really motivated, too. This year isn’t as great and I’m struggling with that. I hope I can have a few more good days like today so I can be comfortably ahead instead of struggling to stay on track. I’m hoping to get a template to use for these posts going forward so I can do them more regularly, too. I’m too overwhelmed with NaNo to do some traditional posts so these might be all you get for the rest of November.

Until next time, write on.

NaNoWriMo: My Day 9 2016

18 Nov

Better today!

Today’s writing time (30 goal): 40
This Week’s writing time (210 goal): 240
Total time for the month (630 goal): 345

I didn’t get any time in  yesterday but I managed to do some today! I did forty minutes just now and depending on my evening, I might do some more tonight. I’ve got to head to a doctor’s appointment and then I can’t decide if I’ll have a beer or go for a run. Time will tell.

Nothing too exciting to report about my edits. I changed a setting for historical accuracy in one scene, but I didn’t add much. I’d made a commitment to make one quiet character a bit more talkative but he hasn’t been in any of the scenes I went over today. Maybe more tonight? I like what I’m doing with him so it will be fun to bring him out.

Until next time, write on.
