NaNoWriMo Day 2

OMG!!!!  What the heck did I get myself into?  Lol.

Day 1.   I only typed 821 words.  Not even half of my goal of 1,700 words a day.  869 words short.  I know it’s not the worst thing in the world, but I am still behind.  That’s not the way I wanted to start, but at least I started.

I want to be able to write 1700 words a day but I don’t know if this is going to be possible.  I know there are days that I’m going to have less words than my goal and that’s going to have to be ok.  Stuff happens and I will have to accept that.  Hopefully there will be days that I write over my goal.

Day 2.  I typed 1,968 words.   Yeah!  My total word count for the two days is 2,789.  611 words short from where I should be at 3,400 words, but I’ll take it.

It’s harder than I thought it would be.  I don’t really know why I thought it would be easier.  As you can probably tell my brain is fried and I should really go to bed.  I’m going to take my notes along and see if they match up with the direction I want to go in for tomorrow’s writing.    Maybe I can write a scene or two so I will just have to type tomorrow.  Maybe not.  Maybe I’ll fall asleep writing.

Did you take the NaNoWriMo challenge?  If so, please share your journey with me.  I need all of the encouragement I can get.

  1. I’m impressed Chrissy. Just write and don’t re-read or edit yourself as you go. Just write. I love Anne Lamott’s advice to write 300/words a day and write crappy first drafts. I may just jump into this whole thing.

      1. I’m trying to do it, but it’s kicking my butt. I’m behind on my word count because I missed Saturday. I wrote a couple of scenes longhand, but i didn’t type anything. I may not have 50,000 words at the end, but I’ll have given it my best try. Who knows? Maybe I will have 50,000 words. You never know.
