A Journey Ended

Today, I won NaNoWrimo, verified wordcount being at just a tiny bit over 104,000. I picked up my PDF certificate, downloaded one of the winner buttons to post up here, and now it’s done. How sad, to find myself at the end of my novel. The first draft is now in full manuscript form, and [...]

Why Am I Taking a NaNoWriMo Day Off – Now?

Wednesday, November 26, 2008

Comments Off

NaNoWriMo – the month of craziness, insanity, tiny ups, and plummetting downs. Week 4, and only 4 days to go before I’m out of this hell hole. So, with only one chapter / three scenes / 10,000 words to go, why take a day off? I could be writing, I should be writing – this [...]

The Last Week of NaNoWriMo

I thought I’d best deal with my feelings right now, for posterity. Onto paper (even if electronic) out of mind, right? I’m not so sure. It’s day 23, 7 official days to go, but I’m more aware of trying to get the darned novel finished completely before the date the NaNoWriMo full wordcount feature is [...]

NaNoWriMo - National Novel Writing Month 50,000 words | 30 Days Commenced – 1st November Hit 50,000 target – 13th November. Final wordcount – 104,292. I Won! And the verifier onsite even added an additional 1000 words which I must have miscounted. 11 Chapters, 34 Scenes, 104,000 words later, and I’ve won my first ever [...]

NaNoWriMo Day 11

The eleventh of the eleventh, in UK terms, a day of rememberance. Ashamedly, I forgot, and carried on writing at eleven o’clock this morning. I’ve added 5800 words today, and another two scenes. A total of 45,767, so only a day or so away from that first goal, but only a third of the way [...]

NaNoWriMo Day10

We interupt this broadcast – to do some research. I guess the weekend’s mammoth effort of putting down 5000 words a day tapped me out for a while. I managed to finish off the chapter and scene I’d been working on yesterday, but can’t find the motivation to go onto the next one. Still, I’ve [...]

NaNoWriMo Day09

5 hours (okay – more), and almost 7000 more words. I tried to get another full chapter under my belt today, three scenes. But by mid-afternoon, I was struggling. Now, at 5:30, I’ve missed out on a lot for a Sunday, and have to give it up, to give my head a bit of a [...]

NaNoWriMo Day08

Saturday, the second Saturday. In between fixing some plumbing problems, and delivering my daughter to a birthday party, I added on another 5000 words. Total now – just over 30,000, 64% of the goal target. Morale – a little ol’ 4 – mainly based on guilt. The one scene I wrote today (two really) which [...]

Statistics and Damned Lies My session timing on writing today shows five hours spent. My wordcount for the day shows 5800 words, taking my total to 24,672. That’s 50% of my target goal of 50,000 words. All in only a week. I should be jumping for joy, I should be celebrating. Such statistics bely a [...]

NaNoWriMo Day 4-6

Thursday, November 6, 2008

Comments Off

If Day 2 of writing my NaNoWriMo novel might be considered to be my current peak for writing, the last three days have been a right trough. I’ve been incredibly sick over the past few days, so much so that I’ve not been able to go to work, or pick up my daughter from school. [...]
