Can you believe it is already November 30th? This month has flown by, which is both a good and bad thing when you think about it. With that said…I have something to share with you all.
That’s right, I did it. I feel like last year’s curse has ended, as have those I suffered through both sessions of Camp NaNoWriMo. I hit 50k way too late (too early?) but once I noticed I was within 1000 words of goal last night I couldn’t stop.
My story isn’t done, but it’s close – still I’m so happy that I managed to win this year. How’s everyone else doing? Where I am there are still a little over four hours left in the day – are you still heading towards goal?
Well everyone, here we are – the last three days of #NaNoWriMo! While there are a lot of people who have already hit 50k, for some of us this is the final push.
As of right now I’m sitting at 45,729 and plan on having another writing session tonight. I’m hoping that I might be able to hit 50k tonight if I really get going – but if not would like to hit it tomorrow. That way the last day can be mostly relaxed – even though I know I will write something just so I can get that “write every day” badge.
This year’s NaNoWriMo has definitely gone better than last year even though I’ve had to be kind to myself on the days I could only write a few hundred words because there simply wasn’t time in my days. Still, I’m super excited to be close to goal and actually completing this year. In a year of difficulties this at least has gone well.
How is everyone else doing? Are you going to win this year?
So here we are, almost two weeks into NaNoWriMo and I have to say I am happy with how it is going. I am below target right now, but I’m not bothered by it. My initial plan for this round was to write what I can during my work week, but not kill myself trying to hit the goal every single day. I figured I could catch up and get on par during the weekend.
So far that plan has gone as expected. I’ve made sure that I write at least something each day, but I used my time off on the weekend to get myself on target heading back into the work week. I haven’t felt the best this week, so I’m glad I haven’t forced myself to write more than I’ve felt like writing.
As of this writing I’m sitting at 15,356 words and I am perfectly happy with that total. I’ve added something every single day and anticipate holding my plan through the month.
Making the decision to not push myself extra hard through the work week was definitely the right decision as I’m not nearly as stressed as I have been in the past and the writing is flowing pretty well.
