I sat down this morning to get to work on my novel, but of course, one has to check all the mandatory sites first – Facebook, Goodreads, Pinterest, when it hit me – Today’s post hasn’t been written! In other words, this is going to be short and sweet.
I started Nanowrimo (National Novel Writing Month) on the first of November. For a super short explanation, it’s when a bunch of writers (and wanna-be’s) dedicate themselves to writing 50,000 words in one month, ending up with a novel at the end of it.
This is my fourth year doing it- although I am doing it a bit differently. Since I finished my novel in September (yaaay!), I am using this year to help me edit the thing! For me this means – filling in holes, fixing plot issues, straight-up editing, etc. Which, makes doing a word count a little challenging. So, I am doing a rough- track of the words I write and edit.
In week one,
I’m feeling pretty good about those numbers since it’s really only been three days since Nano started! In total, I’ve edited over 2k words, when I started the beginning of October. So I’m doing a little happy dance before I get back to work.
I am going to be doing weekly updates this month, but don’t worry! I’ve got a few book reviews coming up as well!
Until next week,
