NaNoWriMo 2017 – Day 27: Win!

Wow. Writing my 1,800 words today was astonishingly hard. But I did it, 600 words in the morning, and the rest in the afternoon. So for now I rest on my laurels   This has been the hardest NaNoWriMo ever for many reasons. First I was sick, and there were endless health troubles with my Read More …

NaNoWriMo 2017 – Day 26

Well, that went well, all in all. I almost finished but in the end I was just too tired in the evening. It was particularly hard to write because I was so full of self-doubt that I wanted to throw the towel completely. After the days before when I had enjoyed my story, and the Read More …

NaNoWriMo 2017 – Day 25

Yeah. There you can see that motivation alone is not enough. It’s not that I had a bad day, it was rather mixed. I knew that aiming for 8,000 words was somewhat ambtious, but I didn’t think I’d end up with a mere 3,500. Boo. I knew that I wouldn’t have time to write in Read More …

NaNoWriMo 2017 – Day 23

I am so stoked today that I’m posting early. I had a hard look at my chances to „win“ NaNo this year yesterday, and as I might have told you it was not looking good. I was at around 22,000 words with a bad track record of wasting precious writing time (like I did yesterday), Read More …

NaNoWriMo 2017 – Day 22

Today’s unused stretches of potential writing time: 5.30 am – 6.30 am: woke up unable to fall asleep again; had left my computer in the kitchen and read a book instead of writing 7.30 am – 8.30 am: wrote a blog post for my other blog, read a book (I’m reading an ARC of „Amber Read More …

NaNoWriMo 2017 – Day 21

Phew. Today I wrote 3,604 words. I am now at 21,557. (And no, the NaNo widget in the sidebar does not show the right wordcount. I actually fiddled with it for half an hour or so, and didn’t get it to work, sorry.) I woke up at 5, started writing at 5.30, and wrote ten Read More …

NaNoWriMo 2017 – Day 20

I wrote every chance I got but I had a pretty busy day. I’m also writing this the morning after because I thought writing the novel was more important than writing the blog post. All in all I only wrote 1,503 words yesterday. About 900 of them I wrote throughout the day every chance I Read More …

NaNoWriMo 2017 – Day 18

The good news is that I actually managed to write a little more than 3,000 words yesterday. I also changed my blog’s theme, and now I don’t get any annoying error messages anymore, and it does display my NaNo widget properly. I’m still not madly in love with the layout but it’ll do for now.
