NaNoWriMo 2016 – Day Eight

Didn’t write anything this morning as I had to head for work, but I did manage to write on my lunch break with a dying laptop.

Then went and did a few errands before going and seeing Doctor Strange in the cinema tonight.

10:13pm – I now have 11893 words out of 13336, which leaves me 1443 left to write before midnight. I can do this, right?

11:40pm – Finishing the night on 12037 words. Way behind where I wanted to be as I didn’t want to fall behind, but feeling seriously bleh about writing tonight. Hopefully tomorrow is better, but I work all day so we’ll see how that turns out.

Good night.



NaNoWriMo 2016 – Day Seven

Good morning.

Had to be at work super early this morning so had no time for anything.

8:01pm – Now up to 10207 words. Feeling bleh about actually writing today too. Hopefully I can get more done and that I also feel more up to writing tomorrow. Gonna keep trying though. 

10:17om – I don’t wanna do this anymore. Not for tonight, anyway. But I have 11131 words, says the NaNo official validation word counter. I’m so close to tonight’s target. I’m also so sleepy though. I want this to be the one year I don’t fall behind the word count aim. But we’ll see. 

11:26pm – Managed to get 11677 as a total so far. May do a few words more for tonight but not sure. However my search history is going to seem suspicious, but I 100% swear it’s for my story. The downfalls of being a writer…

NaNoWriMo 2016 – Day Six

Good morning.

9:19am – I managed to get to 9086 words last night before heading to bed. I’m now up to 9584 but now have to get ready for work.

5 – Finished work. Now time to head up to the boyfriend’s place, so not sure how much I’ll get done.

11pm – Ended up with 10017 words and now heading for bed cuz I’m seriously tired.

Good night.

NaNoWriMo 2016 – Day Four & Five

Day Four:

Worked until four o’clock then headed out for dinner with the boyfriend in the city and stayed in the city too but was damn tired near the end of the night so I was half asleep and trying to write. Luckily with his help I made it to 6727 words.

Day Five:

Had a busy day today too. Went and had breakfast with the boyfriend in the city, went to a write-in and managed to get quite a few words out, got home then went out to dinner. Plus still going at 10:49pm at currently 8551 words, but that does include parts for other random to-be stories that I wrote snippets of on the train ride home.

NaNoWriMo 2016 – Day Three

Good morning.

Had quite a busy day today with work and errands to run so I didn’t really pay attention to what time it was etc.

However, by midnight I did have 5296 words by the day which was good.

We’ll see how much writing I get done tomorrow as I have work then am staying overnight in the city with my boyfriend. Then a busy Saturday too.

Good luck to all of those of you who are joint in with NaNo 2016.

Good night.

NaNoWriMo 2016 – Day Two

Good morning.

12:40pm – Didn’t bring my laptop with me to work today, but handwrote in my notebook during my lunch break, bringing me to 2016 words.

7:40pm – Just finished dinner. Now to pop on some music and see how many words I can do tonight. May even do a word war to bump it up a bit.

8:45pm – Have just finished procrastinating on Facebook instead of actually writing. Time to get to it!

9:38pm – Just did a couple of word sprints with the NaNo website’s word war timer. Currently on 2605 words. Hoping to hit today’s word count aim before going to bed as I have an early start at work tomorrow. Might have a caramel latte sachet then another word war.

10:32pm – Didn’t do another word war, but I’m feeling demotivated so I’m writing standing up now. However a shout out to my friend Chantelle who says she’s my #1 fan and that she genuinely likes it so far 🙂 You get a cookie

12:01am – Finally smashed out those words and ended the day on 4064 words. For a bit there, I thought that I wasn’t going to make it. However I have to be up in 6.5 hours for work so I’m off to bed.


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.
