Nanowrimo stage #2: Denial

Sleep deprived and cranky I write to you again four days after my previous initial post.

The excitement levels are dwindling

I’m behind on my school work, have missed several due dates, but that’s okay

At the moment I can barely keep my eyes open but that’s okay.

I just realized that I have maths homework that absolutely needs to be done but I have to continue writing.

It;s okay everything is okay.

And by saying that I continue to live in denial of the fact that this month is slowly creeping stress into my brain but i have to finish this marathon. I made a commitment so after finishing this post I’m off to writing again. Not before doing my maths homework though

Also today is double up donation day so you can donate $25 to nanowrimo.org and receive $50 worth of Goodies! How awesome is that? it’s going to a good cause funding writing programs around the world. I’m doubling my word count and hope to write 5000 words today.

Total word count: 15733

How are you doing? I’ll check in with you soon




NaNoWriMo Stage #1: Excitement

Howdy folks,

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.
