NaNo2017 Week 4

18 November

NaNoWriMo Target: 30,000

Words Written: 25,208

Wrote 2,052 words. I planned on getting to 27,500 today, but ended up stopping early because of excessive sleepiness and my wrist starting to hurt.

19 November

NaNoWriMo Target: 31,666

Words Written: 27,212

Wrote 2,004 words. Finished chapter 9.

20 November

NaNoWriMo Target: 33,333

Words Written: 29,011

Wrote 1,799 words. Finished chapter 10 and came up with a new plot thread. I did not have a good day, mentally, and that definitely affected my writing. I’ve also created a few more background characters that need names.

However, I already feel pretty good about chapter 11, since it’s mostly going to be a breather, basically, and focus more on character developmentĀ instead of being plot-heavy and tense like the past few chapters.

21 November

NaNoWriMo Target: 35,000

Words Written: 29,191

Wrote 180 words. Ended up being a lot busier than expected.

22 November

NaNoWriMo Target: 36,666

Words Written: 31,218

Wrote 2,027 words. Finished chapter 11. I didn’t expect to write this much at all, but had a sudden burst of inspiration late at night.

23 November

NaNoWriMo Target: 38,333

Words Written: 33,221

Wrote 2,003 words. Named all the characters I created on the 20th and finished chapter 12.

24 November

NaNoWriMo Target: 40,000

Words Written: 36,020

Wrote 2,799 words. I am in currently writing chapter 13, which is 3,901 words and not stopping. It’s my second-longest chapter so far, after chapter 1 (4,926 words).


I am still behind, but I’m less behind than I was a few days ago. I plan on using the rest of the weekend (Saturday and Sunday) to get as caught up as possible. I don’t actually think I’ll reach Sunday’s goal (43,333) but I do want to write at least 5-6k over the next two days.

How was everyone else’s writing week?
