NaNoWriMo 2016 – Day One

This year I am once again doing NaNoWriMo. I have also decided to do a journal sort of thing to share my thoughts with you as I go, this month.

The way I am counting the word is in Microsoft Word and I’m counting words I wrote then essentially rewrote too, plus when I rephrase something. I’m just putting a line through and colouring it red that way it still counts the words but I know that it isn’t gonna go there in the final draft. You never know, I could always change my mind and go back to the original way I wrote it.

Good morning.

12am-1am – Managed to smash out 505 words on my laptop on my new desk.

10:07am – I am very much over today already. Ready for bed already. However I am now up to 933 words. Over halfway!

10:15am – Yay! Nearly done for the day. 1002 words. Ugh, is today over yet? Early wake up was a bad idea.

10:20am – 1068 words! But now time for work. Hopefully I can smash out the other words I need after work.

1:36pm – 1317 words with 10mins of my lunch break left. Time to grab a brownie for later tonight. Hoping to reach above the daily goal for today.

9:16pm – Now up to 1480 words while eating my seriously delicious brownie 🙂

10:04pm – 1684 words written out of the 1667 I needed for today to be on track. Yay. Now to keep going as I won’t be able to write this Friday.

10:52pm – Doing research while listening to my playlist for this story. Prob gonna get a bit creeped out though. Lindsey Stirling and Escala and 2CELLOS are starting to become part of my day to day life by now too thanks to my playlist.

11:20pm – Time for bed. Oh my goodness. 1819 words is plenty for tonight. Early start at work tomorrow.
