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.
Words Written: 1,672
Total Word Count: 35,040
I hit the goal today. Nothing super crazy to report except for the fact that I didn’t even start writing until after 5PM and I did my 1666 words so I’m happy that I was able to push through a little and get past my little block of not being able to write later in the day. I’m getting into a really good point in the book and I’m excited to keep going. We’re getting down to the end of the month and for me to still feel this positive is amazing.
