NaNoWriMo 2021 Day 16

NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month and is held every November. It’s a challenge to write 50,000 words of a novel in thirty days (or 1,667 per day). Writers and wanna-be writers come together with a common goal to write novels, short stories, memoirs, whatever it is they’ve been putting off or need a push to get started. This year I decided I would document my daily writing practice as I strive to finish a draft of a novel I’ve been taking far too long on.

Day 16

Words Written: 1,246

Total Word Count: 23,519

Goal: 50,000


I couldn’t do it today. I was pretty busy today and I thought I could do it later tonight but I’ve solidified a theory I have where I am definitely not a nighttime writer. I am out. of. it. at night. I cannot write later in the day. My mind literally turns to sludge after like 5 PM and suddenly I have no words left to say let alone anything that is creative or unique or in any way a good story.

Until tomorrow,

-Mackenzie
