NaNoWriMo 2017 – Day 17

Today I had my usual busy Friday. In between two other things I managed to sit down and write another 923 words. I found that the NaNo widget in the sidebar doesn’t show my actual word count. I’m at 11,628 as of now, and am planning to add a few more tonight. Of course I’m Read More …

NaNoWriMo 2017 – Day 16

This was a rather typical Thursday. I’m still not feeling well, so I only walked instead of run, and I didn’t work much, but I did manage to record a podcast episode. Did also manage to reach 10K last night. And then I actually fell asleep while typing and did type out something that belonged Read More …

NaNoWriMo 2017 – Day 15

Halfway. Well, the month, not my novel. I did spend another two hours putting together IKEA furniture today, and then there was the day job but I also a lovely 30 minutes writing after dinner. And it’s still pretty early so I will write some more. At least I will earn my 10K badge today. Read More …

NaNoWriMo 2017 – Day 14

On the plus side we do have new furniture for our son’s room now, and the dresser is already put together. Somehow that meant that I didn’t have quite as much time to write as I hoped to. Again. I also did something I never do. That scene that had been bugging me because I Read More …

NaNoWriMo – Day 13

Yesterday was surprisingly wordy. I ended up with 3,907 words total. Which made me really optimistic for today. I even started writing right after breakfast. And thing went slow like a snail’s pace. Half an hour later I had 770 more words, and just knew that my second scene was wrong. Since then I have Read More …

NaNoWriMo 2017 – Day 12

After yesterday’s disaster I had high hopes for today. Again. The disaster was not quite as disastrous as I had feared because I managed to write another 500 words late in the evening. But then my son wanted to talk about stuff like music, and computers, and such, and since he is a teenager and Read More …

NaNoWriMo 2017 – Day 11

So today was the day I was supposed to write something liek 10,000 words or so. I woke up too early, and read for half an hour, then I had breakfast, and wrote my regular daily blog post, and was on the internet, and talked with my husband, and then I waited for my son Read More …

NanoWriMo 2017 – Day 10

Well. It is forty minutes until bedtime and I still have to do a huge pile of dishes. I haven’t written a single word today. And haven’t done any planning. I do remember thinking about the novel for a few minutes while trying to clean the house but I didn’t actually finish the cleaning as Read More …

NaNoWriMo 2017 – Day 9

It’s all going a little slower than I would like but I did make progress today. Did not start writing yet but scenes and characters are beginning to accumulate. Not far to critical mass, I’d say, I’m still a little under the weather, and there has been quite a bit of drama all around which Read More …

NaNoWriMo 2017 – Day 8

I had another rather derailed day with a doctor’s visit, and some other things that filled my mind to a point where there wasn’t much space for the novel. I do have a bit more of a feel for it, which is good, but not quite enough. I’m still hoping to start writing tomorrow, or Read More …
