Day 1 – Wednesday
The first day and I didn’t actually get any writing done. What I did do was sketch out my ideas – the setting, the main characters, what’s going to happen first.
Day 2- Thursday
I did some writing today. About 300 words I think… not much but at least I’m writing.
Day 3 – Friday
Wrote some more. Got up to about 1000 words. Watched the WordNerds Virtual Write-In on YouTube which I think helped motivate me a lot.
Day 4 – Saturday
Nada. Spent the day in town with my husband. We went to the cinema to see Murder on the Orient Express which was good but I expected better.
Day 5 – Sunday
Again nada… No excuse today, I was just lazy. Stayed in my pyjamas and watched TV with himself.
Day 6 – Monday
Today was good. I wrote around 2000 words and watched two of the virtual write-ins from Saturday. I ended up getting a headache midday though then again during the night.
Day 7 – Tuesday
I was wrecked today but managed to get to 4283 words which I’m happy with. I had intended writing more but I ended up binging Stranger Things 2 and then I had book club.
I’m kind of struggling with motivation at the moment so I decided to take a look at what people are talking about on the NaNo page on Reddit and found this video of Neil Gaiman.
I was starting to feel really frustrated with myself and finding it really difficult to want to keep typing but that video really helped.
