NaNoWriMo 2018- Day Sixteen

After I wrote my blog post for yesterday I started feeling very wiped out. I’ve been on/off fighting a cold/cough for the last few weeks and it struck me again last night. So I decided that today I would only write during my lunch break and take a break in the evening. Which is what I’ve done.

I have written 783 words today, for a total of 32875 words. I am nearly completed one of the short stories in this collection that I’ve done. It’s more of a romance than a horror but it’s a story that’s been on my mind for some time and I think it’s not half bad.

Tomorrow I’ll do much the same as today, knock some words out when I have a quiet few minutes and then relax in the evening. On Sunday I’m hosting a Write-In. Then I will get back on and aim for the 1667 words for the day.

Now, I’m going to chill out for a few hours before bed and watch The Warriors.

NaNoWriMo 2018- Day Fifteen

Okay, I am totalled for the day. 1400 words or so tonight. 1707 for the day. 32092 in total.

This first week back at work while doing NaNo has been harder than I thought. I am tempted to drop my daily target a little. I am still a good four days ahead, but that said if I pull my finger out and do a few more words at lunchtime, some before work then the evening session won’t be as demanding. I’m also still fighting a lingering poxy cough/cold, which keeps swinging back and kicking my arse! So I’ll be getting some cold capsules and getting that off my back over the weekend.

That’s enough whining for now. I’m off to bed, so I’m ready to start again tomorrow!

NaNoWriMo 2018- Day Fourteen

A super quick post tonight, as I am super tired. I’ve written 1969 for a total of 30385 on the NaNo story. I’m super stoked to pass the 30k mark. I was at 1400 or so half an hour ago and it wasn’t easy pushing myself so I’d hit target. Once I did though it came quite easily.

I did also write 344 on PE3, which puts my total for the day at 2313 and 32006 words for the month overall.

That’s it for now. I’m going to bed.

NaNoWriMo 2018- Day Thirteen

Just a quick little post today. I’ve written 1720 today for a total of 28416 words overall.

I’ve slacked off tonight, big time. I got the last few words to push me past the daily minimum by joining in a couple of sprints on my local NaNo group. I’ll be at a Write-In tomorrow night but come Thursday I’m going to try and focus and get my words down without interrupting myself.

Time to shut down for the night and watch a movie.

NaNoWriMo 2018- Day Twelve

My word count for today is 1675 for a today of 26696 words for the month.

I knew today would be a change of pace from the last week. Having all the time in the world to write was an awesome luxury to have but I’m back in the real world today. I did hit the word count I wanted, although didn’t get past it at all. I’m okay with that. Now is all about pacing myself and not trying to smash out as many words as I can.

What I’ve got to try and keep is the focus I had last week. When I sit down to write I’ve really got keep the flow going as I have done while making the most of small slots of time I might have. I know I’m going to get a few times when I’ve got a few minutes to spare and that’s when I’ll be doing what I think of as snatching words. This can sometimes feel like I’m writing a little disjointed but I think it’s likely not as bad as I think it is.

This is when NaNo really kicks in for me. This is when I have to step up and manage my time properly.
