After two hours catching up on PAD poems I finally managed my NaNo write – which has taken the best part of another 2 hours. I have also being trying to join PiBoldMo – tonight was the last time you could register but I keep getting errors. Maybe next year.
I started with 906 words in 40 minutes which I was very pleased with and then I changed scenes – and characters, I managed to create 560 something words and came a little unstuck so left the computer for a bit.
I came back and typed away and when I started to feel my brain give in – I decided I must be 1667 words in … It was 1589 I thought that was close enough and because I am currently a bit ahead of schedule it would have been fine to leave it.
This is my first year of Nano though and from my camp experiences I know that to try to stay ahead or on count is important. So I pushed on …. 1653….. 1764
Which is where I left it for tonight.
WORD COUNT = 1764
TOTAL WORDS = 14710 – great JOY! How close it is to 15000? I know that I will definitely reach through that next barrier tomorrow!
WORDS LEFT = 35290
Self discipline – push yourself. You will be amazed at how resilient and flexible you are.
Try to make the daily word count if you can.
Keep enjoying yourself…. if you’re not – walk away for a while.
