NaNoWriMo 2017 Week Four


Day Twenty

I have gotten myself into some kind of writing corner and I'm feeling stuck. I'm not going to to go back and fix it now so I'm just going to keep writing ahead and fix it not during November when I'm just trying to hit a word count. Yikes! So yeah write on. Today was a little back and forth on it being successful. I had to write myself out that hole I got myself into to make it work so I can finish out the month, so that was a bit tough but once I did, it went smoothly so that's something. Still don't have my day lead back - sad!

Word Count: 33,530

Day Twenty-One

I got a ton written today so yay to that. But I still don't have my day lead. But I wrote and I got some good writing done today.

Word Count: 36,041

Day Twenty-Two

I failed a bit at writing today. I just couldn't really get myself to write too much - only 800 words. I just couldn't focus and I'm having trouble with where I'm at in my story so it's hard to really get going. Plus kind of a round mom day so not awesome.

Word Count: 36,841

Day Twenty-Three


So Thanksgiving. A little bit tougher to get my word count in and in truth I was heading towards bed about to admit defeat and already imagining having to make up the 750 some words I was short the next day or so and feeling a bit panicked. But I decided to do a little writing before I went to sleep and managed to get about 200 over my word count goal for the day, which was definitely a relief for me. So there's there. Gobble gobble day is a tough day for writing - next year I definitely want to be a day ahead!

Word Count: 38,571

Day Twenty-Four

Maybe the day after Thanksgiving is even harder than Thanksgiving itself. Basically I'm just plain tired so yeah not wanting to write too much. But a word count is a word count. I think when I'm tired it's even harder to write because for one I'm not processing as well so the ideas are lacking and two I'm also overthinking and not just writing but trying to edit and make it perfect as I go. So yeah today was a bit of struggle, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

Word Count: 40,035

Day Twenty-Five

Oy. Apparently I'm feeling a bit burnt out because I just couldn't get myself to sit down and write. I ended up writing pretty late to get my word count in but I did get it done. Can't lose steam now - I'm so close!

Word Count: 41,762

Day Twenty-Six

It was another late start to my writing. I had other things to take care of during the day which meant I didn't even to writing until the evening. I was a little worried about getting my count in but the words came quicker than I expected. I'm so close to the finish line. I can't stop now even if I have some serious plot holes and I seem to be digging myself into holes and out of them like crazy. Just gotta get it down!

Word Count: 43,665
