Yes! It is November once again which means I’m racing to write 50,000 words in 30 days. AND ten days have already gone by, which means we are one third through the month! I was hoping to catch up to par by yesterday, but that didn’t happen… Today perhaps?
My start was a rough one.
Day one was busy and I only got 1,000 words written. And they were written in the car at a quick stop on our way out of town.
I was only able to write at this stop you see because I was driving 😉
On day two I realized I would never be able to continue with my fast paced storyline without more planning. I switched to another idea.
It went well, though writing was still slow (always is in the beginning of Nano for me), until I reached day five…
I got a babysitting job. The picture shows me with “my” lil nine week old girl. What the picture doesn’t show is her twin brother. ^_^ Best job EVER! But I only got 100 words written that day. The babies weren’t that bad, but I was having severe writers block.
That night I was at a friends house and she asked how I was doing for Nano and if she could read anything. I said a very quick “no”, but let her read another story I had started earlier. She loved it and when my mom came in and saw her reading it she suggested I switch to that story.
The next day I began writing on that story which has caused me little writer’s block and much more enjoyment then the other two stories had!
So although I still have lots more to write before I’m all caught up I’m finally on my way. I’ve done it before, I can do it again. Plus I have awesome writing friends that are pushing and encouraging me to keep going!
