NaNoWriMo 2017 Week Five


Day Twenty-Seven

I am definitely losing my motivation. I just didn't want to write today. It was just one of those days but I got to work and got my word count done anyway. It was definitely a little harder today especially since I'm getting towards the end of my story and that's always the hardest part for me. So there's that.

Word Count: 45,184

Day Twenty-Eight

Only a few days left and I am so close. This is super exciting but it is also making me nervous because I'm definitely losing my steam. My story definitely needs work and I want to get into that but I'm just trying to finish the story at this point (then I plan to take a little break before I start editing and see where it goes from there). It's tough making myself sit down and write. I'm at a point where I'm trying to get to the point where I'm wrapping up my story but I'm also trying to make sure things make sense and I have it all wrapped up. Turns out I'm struggling with this part a lot. Just keep writing.

Word Count: 46,913

Day Twenty-Nine

I am so close now! And I'm really excited about how close I am. I'm ready to be done and have a little break but I'm also excited about how close I am. There is part of me that really doesn't want to write and there is part of me that just wants to plow through and finish. It's very conflicting. So I try not to think about any of it too much and just get words down.

Word Count: 50,006

-------

I did it with one day to spare! I am feeling pretty awesome about this! I wrote a novel in 29 days. Of course it needs a lot of work, but I'm taking a break. I not going to look at it or think about it during December and come the first of the year my plan is to print it all out and start the editing progress and go from there. Maybe I will make something more of it or maybe it will just be that first NaNoWriMo novel I wrote but I'm pretty proud of myself and what I was able to do. November was busy and I didn't want to write everyday but I buckled down and got it done.

Apparently I can write a novel if I set my mind to it and have a goal for each day. I just needed a little direction and focus and I was able to do something pretty awesome. So now I'm going to take a writing break.
