NaNoWriMo 2021 Day Thirty

The last day of the month is being wrapped up with 414 words, and a lack of satisfaction. Next year, I won’t let this happen again.

I do have some bits and pieces to work with, but it’s not been how I’d have liked it.

Signing off on NaNoWriMo 2021 with a whimper and not an explosive end.

NaNoWriMo 2021 Day Twenty-Nine

Good evening, folks! How are we all doing this evening?

I’ve written 331 words today. Um, still feel like I’m hitting my head against a brick wall but I’m quite proud of the fact that despite how hard it has been at times to write this month, I’ve still managed to get some words out.

I think some of it is my creative well needs to be refilled. I’ve recently watched Nobody Sleeps In The Woods Tonight, and it’s sequel. The first one was very good, but I wasn’t as keen on the second one. It didn’t feel as sinister as the first one. For me it focused on explaining things a little too much, and made it not as engaging as the first one was.

Speaking of movies, I’m going to pop into Grand Theft Auto V Online for half an hour and then find something to watch.

Have a good one, folks!

NaNoWriMo 2021 Day 28

368 today. It wasn’t like pulling teeth like it has been lately. I think I’ve found something that I might be able to get my teeth into.

I’ll be happy to hit 30,000 by the end of the month.

NaNoWriMo 2021 day 27

Only about 200 words today.

I just feel a little brain dead when I look at the stories. Maybe doing shorts wasn’t such a good idea, maybe I needed something I can really get my teeth stuck in.

Maybe that creative fire has died down too much and it needs some fuel put on it.

NaNoWriMo 2021 Day Sixteen

Just a quick post tonight. I wrote 599 words today and am up to just over 21k now. Yes, I’m behind. Ive been procrastinating far too much but I will be getting back on track!

Hopefully! 😂

NaNoWriMo 2021: Days 6 and 7

Good morning folks, just a quick little update here on the last couple of days.

On the 6th I wrote 2101 words and on the 7th I wrote 1974 words.

I’m getting back closer to that 2k a day, which was my aim at the start of the month.

The first story I was working on has fallen a little flat so I’ve switch to the next one. This one is a rewrite of an older story I was working on and I wasn’t planning on working on it but it’s been speaking to me so it’s been bumped up.

Happy NaNoering folks!

NaNoWriMo 2021 Days Four and Five, and Aim For Day Six

Hey Folks, Just a quick update. On the forth I wrote 397 words and on the fifth I wrote 1141 words.

Today I’m going to try and grind the words out and get at least 2k written. This’ll give me a couple of hundred words buffer and then tomorrow I’ll aim to do the same, but maybe with a push to 3k for the day. We’ll see.

Right, I’m going to get stuck in.

I hope everyone is okay and those of you doing NaNo I hope you’re making progress.

NaNoWriMo 2021 Day Three

After an emergency trip to the dentist I managed to write 1971 words today.

It was quite easy to get rolling and I found that I’m opening up the story a little more now. It started almost in at the deep end but now I’m filling it out a little and I’m feeling like there will be more I can flesh out at the start of the story when I come to edit it.

Right. I’m aiming for a solid day tomorrow! So rock on folks!

NaNoWriMo 2021 Day 2

Howdy folks, just a short little post tonight.

I wrote 1754 words today and had some great conversations with members of my NaNo region, both friends and a person I hadn’t spoke to before today.

Not as many words as I’d have liked but I’m still very happy with where I am and the story is moving nicely, although I think what I did today will need a solid editing when the time comes. At the moment it feels more like a transition long scene and I don’t like it when a scene feels like that. It needs to be gripping and not just something to move the story along.

Day three tomorrow, and I’m feeling pretty good for it!
