Halfway through Nanowrimo

15 Nov

How I have now started counting for my ‘nano words’ as I call them, is the formula I found on Camp Nano (link). One hour of editing equals 1,000 words. So, according to that, on Nano, I have a total of 21,118 words! I need to write 1,669 words a day to finish on time. My goal is actually 2,000 a day.

For the sake of everything, in my word docs total, I’ve edited/written 52,481. Which makes me feel a whole lot better. There were days when I was just BUSTING out the editing, yay for writing that didn’t need much filler or correction (at least this go-round) but now I’ve come to the parts that need quite a bit of filler. And then I decided that something bad needed to happen to my MC (main character), so that was a lot of debating, questioning, wondering and calling my mom to bounce ideas off her (thanks mom!). In other words, the going is a lot slower right now.

Oh, yeah, this has been going on in our house too:

 

Of course, there were 2 more kids (and their parents!!) here – we had such a fun, full house! Then, Abby got fixed last monday…that’s been ‘fun’. And then last weekend, our friends came and stayed with us. So much fun = so little writing getting done!

A friend of mine is doing Nano as well, and we’ve been messaging each other each day, talking writing and nonsense, and sending songs! i’m creating a playlist on youtube as we go, I’ll share it at the end of the month. But having her as a writing buddy has helped me SO much.

Are you doing Nano?
