NaNoWriMo- 11/4

I almost forgot about my novel today! I’m such a bad author.  I didn’t want to completely skip the day so I wrote for about 10 minutes, since it is already after my normal bedtime!

If you want to follow my progresson the NaNoWriMo website then check out my profile here.  It’s very bare bones and I haven’t added much to it yet.

I wish the words I wrote in these blog posts could count towards my total.


How long does it take to get into a real routine with writing?

NaNoWriMo: 11/3

I started my novel last night.  Wow, that sounds weird writing that- I mean a few paragraphs is certainly not a novel, though I suppose it is the way the vast majority of novels start.  Anyways, I started writing it yesterday and continued typing today.  I wrote a lot more today than yesterday so I think that is good. I am not however, reaching the word count goals that I should be to stay on track to reach 50,000 words by November 30th.  I am also finding it difficult not to edit as I go a long.  I am trying very hard to just write, stream of conciousness almost so that I can go back later and refine refine refine.

This is an interesting project so stick with me to see how it goes.  Oh and of course, I am attempting to write a Young Adult novel! Did you expect anything different?


To date:

938 words


It’s November which means it’s National Novel Writing Month!   The goal is to write a 50,000 word novel by the end of the month by writing a little more each day.  I don’t know if I can write a novel as I’m not much of a creative writer, but I am going to try to write every day this month.  We’ll see how it goes.  I will confess I forgot about it until today so I didn’t start yesterday, but I guess that just means it’ll be even more of a challenge to make it to 50,000 words.
