Just like in previous years, I’m going to be doing weekly blog posts during NaNoWriMo. And this year, I’m going to be doing something a little different! Instead of just giving an overview of the week, I’m going to talk about each day individually and then do an overview. Since I haven’t written any words today, I’ll be saving that for next week.
NaNoWriMo Target: 1,667
Personal Target: 2,000
Words Written: 2,508
Finished the prologue and started on chapter 1. Everything feels good so far.
NaNoWriMo Target: 3,334
Personal Target: 4,000
Words Written: 4,169
Finished chapter 1. Everything still seems okay.
NaNoWriMo Target: 5,001
Personal Target: 6,000
Words Written: 5,184
Had a lot of trouble writing today. Only got halfway through chapter 2.
NaNoWriMo Target: 6,668
Personal Target: 8,000
Words Written: 8,031
Ended up writing 2,847 words because I wanted to get back on track. And I did!
Overall, I’m off to a pretty good start! I’ve figured out some things I wasn’t sure about, but I’m also starting to reach the point where my outline ends – I only have an outline up to chapter 4. It’s a very rough outline, where I summarize a chapter in one or two sentences, but it’s still helping me.
I’m going to continue with my goal of 2,000 words per day. With that in mind, I ought to reach 10,000 words tonight, after which I’ll do some outlining.
How are your novels going?
