For those who don’t know NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. I’ve been busy participating in it, but I’ll admit that it’s been a little difficult. I know it’s not meant to be easy, but… I guess I’ll explain.
NaNoWriMo leaves a writer with one goal: Write 50,000 words in one month! And trust me, that’s a lot of words, especially for someone like me who hasn’t really written much before starting! Now, some people count the words of their books, words in blog posts, words in poetry, but I personally don’t. This blog post here won’t count towards my word goal for NaNo. But 1,667 words per day isn’t that bad.
But I started off strong. I had a lot of words to start with, the story of Insanity pulling me in, wanting to be written, but the struggle of NaNo is to keep up that motivation and inspiration throughout the 30 days.
Well, I’m a little behind and I’m sitting at around 33,000 words and I still have about 17,000 more words to finish in the 13 days that are left in the month.
I’ll be typing away again though and keeping my fingers crossed. Luckily, I have some days off where I can get some more writing done!
Good luck to anyone else participating in NaNoWriMo ❤
