Good morning, folks. I hope you’re all well?
Yesterday morning I wrote 2149 on the vampire book in about two and a half hours, and then 173 words on the fan fiction piece later on in the day.
So, damn productive day yesterday. That was the sort of number I’d be pushing for early NaNoWriMo. It’s also something I was worrying a little over. I’m still not having many days where I’m hitting a thousand words, which when you have to be hitting about 1667 a day for NaNo, you’re a ways off. I know NaNo is still, what six weeks off? but it’ll be here before we know it. Which means I’m going to have to dive into preparation for it. Unlike the last couple of years I’m going to write a novel. The last two years I’ve written short story collections, but this time I’m going to write a novel. I know what I’m going to work on, and I hope I can pull it off. I’ve got to do some planning and thinking on it before I get stuck in, but even as I’m writing this ideas are popping into my head. So hopefully I’ll be able to have a novel written by the end of NaNo, or at least a big part of it.
I will admit to being dead tired this morning. I didn’t sleep too well, but with everything that has happened this year, I’m slowly getting used to this feeling. I also know once I get up and about properly I’ll be alright. I just need to wake up properly. My body is awake, unfortunately my brain hasn’t caught up yet.
It’s time for me to get some words down. I’ve got a lot to do today so not much writing time, so I’m going to get a drink and make the most of what time I do have.
Have a good one, folks!

2322 in one day? That’s impressive! Yesterday I did productive edits, but I was disappointed I didn’t write any new words. Today I’ll only be working on new words.
I still don’t know what I want to do for Nano this year. A series of short stories? A rewrite of a book in progress? Something entirely brand new?

I’m beginning to find that if I have an edit day, then I won’t get a new words day that done. And vice versa.
I found short story collections worked really well for me in 2018, but last year non-writing matters was the reason why I didn’t do that well.
