Nanowrimo 2018: Update 17

Yesterday, after I'd updated, I went to a coffee shop with my writing friends, Andy and Bruce. Then we went round to the local community centre for our last official nanowrimo meet where another two lovely nanowrimoites turned up. I was pretty drained so didn't stay for the full meet, but got another 500 words written. When I came home I wrote a further 500, meaning I wrote 5000 words yesterday. Pretty good going.

 

Today I got up really early with 3,000 words to write. I got that done, plus a little extra besides and ended up doing 3185, so, I reached 50K! I won! 50k in 30 days! Phew, that was hard work, made so much easier by the great friends I made along the way, Andy and Bruce. The Nano events Bruce organised were great fun and totally made nano for me. Bruce is on my right, Andy opposite me.

 

 

My final word count stands at 50,301 words. I'm going to take a day or two off and then finish my novel, because it's not done yet. I need to do another 20,000 words roughly. I'm loving this novel, though and really feel this is the one.

Nanowrimo 2018: Update 16

I had to get up early to go to the dentist yesterday, then decided to go into Belfast and buy the Marian Keyes book. I'd brought my laptop, so after all that I decided to treat myself to coffee and a scone while writing. I got 2000 words done, which brought me up to 42,000.

 

Today I've already written 2,000, which brings my total up to 44,166 words. I'm going to a coffee shop later, then the final local write-in and I intend to reach roughly 47k. I could write late into the night and finish this, but I think I'll get up early tomorrow and do it instead. I'm getting quite excited being so close! My novels going to plan, as well, so it's all looking good.

Nanowrimo 2018: Update 14

I haven't done an update for a few days because I've been pretty busy, but I've been consistently blasting away at my keyboard. I still have a good bit to go, but at the moment I'm at 39068 words, meaning I still have 11,934 to win Nano. I have loads on this week, but the two Nano write-ins I'm going to will help me boost my word count.

 

I've written 2035 words today and I plan to write roughly 2,000 more so I hit 40,000. I have complete faith in myself that I'll manage it and I'll update you all again when I do.
