NaNoWriMo Update-week 3!
So I know i was late with my week 2 update and I'm now early with my week 3 update but I don't think I'll be writing much between today and next Monday because I've got parents visiting and a wedding to have in between now and then so this is almost like a NaNoWriMo wrap-up but not quite!
So the big news is that I got to 50,000 words on Saturday night. I definitely wanted to reach 50,000 by today but our stuff ended up being delivered yesterday and so I had to write like the wind to get to 50,000 by Saturday night. I rewarded myself with a nice long bath afterwards and I have approximately a day and a half after everyone goes home from our wedding to get some more words written before the official end of NaNoWriMo.
Here's what my week looked like:
Day 15: 40897
Day 16: 44399 (Technically this ran into day 17 so these words counts are kind of the same)
Day 17: 44399
Day 18: 44399 (Didn't write today)
Day 20: 50814 (Yey!)
I would say my novel is approaching the halfway point and so I definitely have some more words still to write and I'm intending on finishing in the month of December. I'm getting very into the whole thing now and so I really want to resolve the issues my characters were facing at the end of act one, plus I want to write the happy ending, or not so happy ending as the case may be.
So I'll have one more NaNoWriMo post for you as a wrap up post. I'm not intending on having my word count validated until the official end of the challenge so that I can get some more words written between now and then!
Don't forget to keep writing every day if you're taking part and leave me a comment below if you are so I can express solidarity!
Happy reading and writing!
