NaNo has officially been going on for a whole week. I can't believe it!! November is going to go by so dang fast! Like, seriously, it's already a week in. *shudders*
But you don't want to hear about my constant gawking of how fast time flies, you wanna know how I'm doing with NaNo!
If you're reading this then you must be...
Other then the fact that I had such a hard time falling asleep on the night of Halloween, which means being really tired, DAY ONE WENT WELL! Tuesday's one of the busier days of the week, but I managed to write lots in between activities. Especially the biggest activity---
THE LODESTAR LAUNCH PARTY!!XD It was so awesome, but my sister, my mom, and I had to wait in line to get Shannon Messenger to sign our book for two whole hours. STILL, IT WAS FUN! And I got the book, so...XD LOL!
Plus, I got a supply of the best soda ever--
Yes, so good.XD
So, although lots of people started off their days with like 10k or something crazy, I only got my daily word count in!
Getting up early and having to go to work is definitely not going to help get you in the writing zone, AND I didn't get to FaceTime Jaclynn when I was writing, so this may or may not have been my face when she rejected my FaceTime invitation-
Then again, she could FaceTime later, and I said no because I was done writing for the day.XD
AND CAN I JUST SAY HOW HARD IT IS TO WRITE WHEN YOU HAVE LODESTAR RIGHT NEXT TO YOU WITH ALL OF ITS AWESOMENESS?!?!?!?
Today was the day of two things- READING SO MUCH and pure I DON'T WANNA WRITE.
Later on, I FaceTimed Jaclynn as I drank my soda, but wasn't writing. I had a legit sad face going on while I sat on the bottom steps of my house's staircase, yet once I asked Jaclynn to take a screen shot, I couldn't keep a straight face. This was the closest I got-
Yup. Me on the stairs. But some way or another, I managed to write over my daily word count!
Guys, I'm just saying that it would be a lot easier for me to feel up to writing if it was cold. SERIOUSLY. IT'S GONNA BE IN THE NINETIES TOMORROW.
I'm pretty sure I made it to my inciting incident in my story on Friday, so words just FLEW OUT OF ME! It was awesome and is definitely the best feeling as a writer. I watched Pirates of the Caribbean "At World's End" (SO SAD BUT VERY INSPIRING) as well!XD Even though I did write a lot, something else happened. I finished Keeper.
You have no idea how scared I was. GUYYYSSS!!! THE CLIFF HANGER!!!O.O
This was the most epic writing day!!! I am pretty positive it's the most I've ever written in one day! I was so close to writing 5k when I was winding down my writing time, so I decided to keep on writing for a while, and then BAM! It was bed time, and I was like 100 words away from 6k. So, I furiously finished the 6k on my phone as I got ready for bed. AND I MADE IT! It was so awesome to do the math and find out that I had written so many words!
HAHAHAHAHA. I only wrote two sentence yesterday.
I got home from a long rehearsal at 4:00 pm though, so I guess I had an okay excuse, yet I still didn't write. I was just so drained from writing so many words the day before! I'm still recovering.XD And things are getting a bit complicated with my character's emotions, meaning I am having a harder time figuring out what they are going to do next. Haaa...I need to figure it out.XD
I'm not gonna lie, I spent the vast majority of the rest of my day doing this.
I have, like, no self-control.
I could also use the excuse that I AM SICK AND HAVE A COLD. Which usually I wouldn't be that upset about, but I JUST HAD ONE LITERALLY THREE WEEKS AGO!!!
I need to get better...:(
BUT ANYHOO...I don't have a word count for today, because I haven't started writing, but I hope to get lots of words in and get over my rough patch of story.;)
All in all, I have reached the grand total of 15,034 words! I am at the 30% goal!!! YAYYY!!XD
So, my fellow NaNoers, how is NaNo going for you? What's your grand total of a word count?:)
