Nanowrimo 2018: Update 6

I haven't updated for a few days because I've been writing at night and by the time I've finished, it's been so late that I haven't felt like it.

 

On Saturday I went to the Nanowrimo 24-hour Belfast write in. Did I actually last 24 hours?? No, but I managed 6 and a half! I wrote 3000 words and even though I planned to write more I felt pretty good about it. That brought my total up to roughly 12,700.

 

Last night I was on a roll and wrote more than I've done at any point this month, 3020 words! I'm very happy with that because it now means I'm at a total of 15,304 words! 

 

I've been writing a little more every day for the past week which is great. I'm consistently writing a little more every day which really cheers me up. I have a lot on this week, so I'm not sure how much I'll get done, although on Sunday I'm going to another Belfast write-in which'll boost my work count.

 

I'm really happy with my progress thus far and am really starting to enjoy writing my story. May it continue.

Nanowrimo 2018: Update 5

I hit 10k! Yea! I'm going to write loads this weekend and hit 20k in the next few days. I'm going to reward myself with a chapter or two of my Belinda Bauer book now. I'm nearly done with it, so I might even get that finished tonight, too!

Nanowrimo 2018: Update 4

Today's been a tough one. Nanowrimo is conversely great and terrible, because when you don't feel like writing you're forced to sit, chained to your page and continue writing. That's great because it means you're still continuing with your story, but if you're writing crap, which I've felt at many moments throughout today, you have to continue. It doesn't help that I'm quite far behind. I'm supposed to be at 13,333 words today, apparently, but in reality I'm only at 8116. I've written roughly the same as yesterday, 2057 words, but I'd really like to catch up. Those words were much harder to find today. I looked at my update posts from 2 years ago and at this point I was sitting at over 12,000 words. I'm still going to do this, but I'm really feeling the desperation of being behind and trying, trying, trying to catch up. I'm determined to write a lot more tomorrow. I even managed to do some reading today, which was great. I probably should have been writing, though...

Nanowrimo 2018: Update 3

I was supposed to post an update every day and I did intend to post one yesterday, but alas, I didn't. I'll make sure I post as much as possible from now on, though.

 

I wrote consistently today and reached 2041 words! My total word count now stands at 6059 words. I'm very happy with the progress I've made and know I'm going to kill nano this year! I'm going to write a lot the rest of this week and hopefully get up to 20,000. There's a write-in in Belfast tomorrow and on Saturday there's a 24 hour one. It starts at 3pm on Saturday afternoon and goes on until 3pm Sunday. I don't think I'll be able to manage the full 24 hours, but I'll go for a few hours.

Nanowrimo 2018: Update 2

I wasn't going to post an update today because I haven't written nearly as much as I wanted to, but I planned to put up a daily one to keep me accountable, so here I go.

 

This morning I woke up with the intention of writing 5000 words. I fill out a scene form before I write every scene as it helps me figure out where that particular bit is heading. I filled out quite a few this morning and then sat down to write.

 

I managed to write 1172 words and then I started to feel a little unwell. I have a chronic illness, so it happens. It's annoying, but it always sorts itself out in the end, so I've decided I probably won't write anymore today, I'll just make it up in a day or two. My total word count is now at 2496.
