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: 1,710
Total Word Count: 40,123
I finished my word count before 7AM today. It went by really quickly and I’m excited about where we’re going in the story. I’m actually excited to write tomorrow and I’m especially excited about eating turkey and hanging out with friends all day. I don’t have a lot to say today other than it feels good to write, it feels really great to get my word count done early. And it feels good to be making a lot of progress.
