So Far Today…

my husband and I saw Spectre and heard our baby’s heartbeat. All I have to do now is get my word count in and I’ll be all set. 

NaNoWriMo Update

I’m learning so much from this process. I usually write linear, but with the whole sprint writing of it all, I don’t let myself stare at the screen. If I get stuck I move to another scene. I’m finding it to be useful in story development as well as word count. I also don’t pause my writing to visit time suck websites. 

I finished today at 14,590 words and I’m really happy with them. I was able to write a section that tied the two peices of my first act together. I know I will finish my 50,000 words, my question now is: Will I finish the story in the words I have left? 

Good luck to the rest of you!

NaNoWriMo Update

Last night I ended at 9057 words. I feel so excited. As someone who has never paid attention to word count before, this is a great learning experience. I’m not writing linearly, which is not super common for me, but the story is coming together.

Making 50,000 words by the 30th of November, seems very possible, but finishing this novel in that many words is starting to look sketchy.

I’d love to know how you guys are doing¬†if you’d like to comment below or buddy me at http://nanowrimo.org/participants/martyvee.

All the best!

NaNoWriMo Update 

I finished yesterday at 5086 words. I wrote about 300 words this morning before work. I’ve been sick, so I’m hoping to have energy to write on my lunch. But I might end up taking a nap. 

I know there are some haters out there for NaNoWriMo, but I’m really enjoying this. I love what I’m writing and haters gonna hate. 

I hope all you snazzy Cats are doing well!

Marty
