NaNoWriMo- Day 6

6 Nov

Daily Word Count: 3,342

Total Word Count: 19,271

How I’m feeling: Oh my gosh, my fingers are cramping. I’m at the tail end of a write-in right now and after those three Word Wars, my fingers are feeling it. But I got a nice boost in Word Count. These Write-Ins will be good for me. Three times a week is going well.

What I’ll do with the rest of my day: Going home and going to bed. It’s getting a little late and the fingers need some sleep.

How’s it going for you? Are you using write-ins to help speed up your word counts? Is it working for you? Let me know, Reader!

Until next time, write on.


NaNoWriMo- Day 5

5 Nov

Daily Word Count: 3,852

Total Word Count: 15,929

How I’m feeling: Not too great, but not too terrible. I went to a write-in at my local library and the crowd was really mixed. Many people there weren’t doing NaNo, just looking for a group of writers to join and seemed amazed at the idea of Word Wars. I met some awesome people, though and I’m glad I went to meet some other writers who are different from myself. On the other hand, I missed writing with my Novel Girls.

What I’ll do with the rest of my day: I’m watching The Voice and waiting for local election results. Call it nerdy, call it social responsible, call it what you want.

How’s it going for you? Are you feeling any sort of burn out yet?

Until next time, write on.

NaNoWriMo- Day 4

4 Nov

Daily Word Count: 2,116

Total Word Count: 12,077

How I’m feeling: Perfectly fine and dandy. I just finished a very fine dinner if I don’t say so myself.

What I’ll do with the rest of my day: Assuming the hubby can write 1,500 words in the next forty minutes (for class, sadly not for NaNo), we’re going to go see Ender’s Game tonight. I’m thinking of it like a reward for myself for being so disciplined the last few days and being so far ahead of pace.

Tell me about your NaNo! How’s your word count doing today?

Until next time, write on.

NaNoWriMo- Day 3

3 Nov

Daily Word Count: 3,945

Total Word Count: 9,961 (So close to 10,000!)

How I’m feeling: It’s truthfully very mixed. I have a bad headache but I went to my first write in and got almost 4,000 words. I won my first Word War and got a sticker to decorate my laptop. Now I’m chilling on the couch watching
Order of the Phoenix
while my husband grades essays. After a chai latte I’m feeling a bit better.

What I’ll Do With the Rest of My Day: of course finish this movie and have some spaghetti. I need to iron and grocery shop at some point but that can wait.

NaNoWriMo- Day 2

2 Nov

Daily word Count: 3083

Total Word Count: 6016

How I’m feeling: More than a little sluggish. Everyone who came to the party last night left food. And of course, only one person had hummus and pita, everything else was cookies and brownies. So let’s just say I’ve had a few too many pecan bars and Milkey Ways.

What I’ll do with the rest of my day: We’ve got another Halloween Party tonight and it’s my turn to drink tonight! I’m excited for my first write-in tomorrow with NaNoWriMotown so come by and say hi!

Leave me a comment and let me know how it’s going for you!

Until next time, write on.

NaNoWriMo- Day 1

1 Nov

Daily word Count: 2903

Total Word Count: 2903

How I’m feeling: Surprisingly good! Getting almost 3000 words wasn’t too hard. My goal for the day was 2000. Tomorrow my goal is another 3000 so i can be almost 6K in after two days. What a good feeling that will be!

What I’ll do with the rest of my day: My husband and I are hosing a Halloween party tonight so I’ll be chillin all night.

Reader, how was Day 1 for you? What’s your word count?

Until next time, write on.
