NaNoWriMo 2018 -Day Nineteen

Today I have written 1019 for a total of 36379. Not as many as I’d have liked but I had a fun time at the write in tonight which was good for the soul.

I’m making this a short post because I’m a touch exhausted. That’s a problem I’ve found writing these posts each night after I’ve written for the day. My brain is fried and I can’t really get anything apart from the basics out. Maybe next year I’ll write these posts the next day, but we’ll see.

I am still almost three days ahead, so I can afford a few slower days. I am going to aim for the 1667 a day though, but I will be happy if I get at least 1000 words a day.

I’m out for the day. Keep working towards your goals, folks 🙂


NaNoWriMo 2018- Day Eighteen

Good evening all. Today I’ve written 2135 words for a total of 35360 words.

The Write-In today was a lot of fun. I got my words done for the day there and then added a few more once I’d got home.

Not a bad days work. I also played some of the news Spider-Man game and watched a couple of movies. I am feeling better now, I feel like I’m winning this fight against this cough/cold I’ve had.

I am three days ahead still, and now I’m beginning to feel better I’m going to get my word counts back up.

Another Write-In tomorrow night will help that out, and then another on Sunday. Bring it on.

NaNoWriMo 2018 -Day Seventeen

A low impact day. I’ve written 350 words for a total of 33225 for the month.

I’m getting the best of this cough/cold, and have a Write-In tomorrow where I’ll be getting back onto the 1667 words a day again.

If you’ve never been to a Write-In I strongly recommend you check one out. It’s a great way to meet your community. Writing is such an isolating passion but when you’ve got other writers talking about the same things you’re experiencing it can be very eye opening. My local NaNo group is awesome. It’s very supportive and is fairly active throughout the year. We even have a monthly meet that is a highlight of the month for me.

If your local NaNo group isn’t that active or there doesn’t seem to be many Write-Ins near you, why not test the water and see if there’s a few people there who’d like to go to a few.

Right, thats me done for now. I’m looking forward to a good day’s writing tomorrow. I hope everyone is writing well, if you’re not take a break and recharge the batteries.

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.
