Writing a novel is like running a marathon. In the beginning it’s all excitement. The gun has gone off or in this case your alarm clock signalling the start of this month long journey.
You’re highly positive and despite this being your first time writing a 50 000 word novel in a month you seem so completely sure of yourself.
There’s water for hydration, candies for energy, there’s your laptop and then there’s you. As the clock strikes twelve you race ahead, pumping out everything you have, saying that you’ll work extra hard and get that extra mile in so it won’t come back to bite you.
The words start pouring out of you faster than you can type and by the end of it you’re surprised to find that writing is actually so draining but you know what? you did it. You survived four days of this craziness managing to hit your word count.
My total word count NaNoWriMo day four: 8019
It doesn’t seem much compared to the big 50 000 but hey we’ll get there
Are you doing NaNoWriMo? I’m internally rooting for you! If not then be a cheer leader and internally root for all the incredible suicidal people that have embarked on writing 50 000 words in a month.
