NaNoWriMo 2017: Days 17 – 21

I didn’t write on the 17th. I did other admin chores and Shaun and I had a date night. It was super.

I wrote 3,510 words on the 18th, a fair amount of it doing sprints with my friend Summer and the NaNoWordSprints twitter. I killed a character, I rarely ever do that!

I didn’t write on the 19th.

IMG_20171120_091640-01.jpgI wrote 2,404 words on the 20th, more sprints with Summer & NaNoWordSprints.

I wrote 2,333 words on the 21st. A lot of it was going back and adding scenes because I feel like I’m hurtling towards the end of my story and I still have about 14k words to go. I definitely left plenty of room earlier in the story for character building, though. I still have loads to work with.

Here’s the last sentence I wrote:

“You’ve made quite a mistake,” she said.

All told I have written 8,247 words since I last made a wordpress update.

NaNoWriMo 2017: Day 15

Halfway there! I struggled to get started and I only wrote 1041 words yesterday, but I did pass 25k so I’m still on track!

Alida placed hers on the vanity table.

NaNoWriMo 2017: Day 13

I basically went from “I guess I won’t be writing at all today!” to “Oh! I just wrote 2,824 words.”  It was a rough start. I’m having another rough start today, to the extent that writing this blog post feels like treading water. I don’t know what else to say. Things are hard and then they’re easier and then they’re hard again but I’m pretty sure they’ll be easier again, too.

I got my Vistaquest VQ1005 camera out. The way it makes the world look cheers me up.

The last sentence I wrote:

She wasn’t sure if she wanted the coziness of falling into a familiar book or the more riveting excitement of reading something for the first time.
