NaNoWriMo 2017 Week Two



Day Six

Oy with the inspired! I mean seriously I knew I needed to get the writing done but boy I wasn't feeling it today. I guess that's a Monday for you. I turned on a Spotify playlist and forced myself to get some words on the paper. Today was definitely one of those days that my whole goal was just to get to my word count goal and I just wasn't get more written than that.

Word Count: 10,292

Day Seven

Today was my latest day of writing yet. Of course when I say that I mean I got to my goal for the day at about 9 pm. I started writing earlier in the day than got distracted. But I got back to it in the evening. I will admit that I was a bit distracted once again because instead of just turning on music and focusing I had the TV on in the background and of course I was interested in what was on in the background. But I got focused and got my word count finished with about a hundred extra words for the day, so that's something.

Word Count: 11, 725

Day Eight

Today went well. I got stuck with about 400 words left. Apparently I typed a sentence that just completely got me stuck. But I did my best not to overthink, and just type. It didn't have to be perfect right now but that's a hard thing to remember when you are writing and you want it to be somewhat decent. Anyway I plowed through and I ended up with 500 more words than I needed yesterday so that's good. I will definitely take the headstart into for the next day!

Day Nine

Today I didn't write until later into the day and I struggled to get myself going. I was really glad I had given myself a little bit of a headstart the day before. I just couldn't get to my count today. But finally I focused and was over my goal by 3 words. At least I made it.

Word Count: 15,003

Day Ten

I did a little writing while the kids were watching a movie in the morning which was good because I didn't get back to it until the evening since I took a nap that afternoon. I figured I was so tired that I just couldn't focus and I didn't want to end up writing something I would just delete. So I just napped at quiet time, which meant writing later into the evening. But that was okay because I got myself going and I ended up feeling good about what I wrote and my word count for the day.

Word Count: 17,261

Day Eleven

I don't know what's up with Saturday but I just didn't want to write. I couldn't get myself to focus. We had a lazier morning so nothing there. I ended up Christmas shopping during quiet time and just couldn't get myself to write more than five words. That just meant I would have to kick it into gear in the evening.

Word Count: 19,997

Day Twelve

I knew I didn't need to do a ton of writing today. Yesterday I was three words shy of my goal for today but I also know that I really liked being ahead, so I did some writing today. However I think I wrote so much yesterday that I had a little trouble getting inspired and didn't so some writing until the evening.

Word Count: 20,667

  1. Good for you, Becca. I had considered participating in NaNoWriMo this year but have too many balls in the air right now.
