The first eight days I was on leave from work and managed to write 22,537 words, which is 3k more than the same point last August when writing the first draft of A Scream In The Woods.
I only managed a further 500 words over the next FOUR days! That’s what the day job does to me 🙂
At least I’ve had a blast through this weekend and have burst through the 30k mark.
At the halfway stage of NaNo, I’m at 33,000 words. Only 17k left!
To be honest, I’m not bothered whether I finish Camp NaNo any more. I want to finish the draft of this novel. It’s worked its way inside my head and needs releasing.
I do hope to hit the 50k words before the end of July, but the target is to finish this first draft. However long it takes me. After all, Writing is for LIFE not just for NaNo. 🙂
Now, I bang on about being a planner, but …
I do like tangents and my characters have taken liberties with my plans so far. They’ve already taken me in directions I hadn’t planned and dominated some of the earlier scenes. I like it when they do that.
I have to map the next few chapters out, but I’m pleased with the results so far.
Even if you’re a planner, pantsing is a great hobby 🙂
If you’re taking part. Happy NaNo’ing.
Thanks for reading.
