NaNoWriMo – Day 18 and a MAMMOTH 4 Day Catch Up Write!

Standard

I have been busy for 4 days and was unable to complete any NaNo writing – today I had the day off and set myself the writing challenge of 4000 (secretly hoping for more like 6000) – unfortunately it was 5pm before I started! It has taken me the best part of 4 hours but I have succeeded. 602281_10151891592314299_1657758687_n

I have been counting the parts in bitesize chunks of 200 – 500 words, not intentionally this is just where the natural breaks came – I had a post-it note taken from the plan highlighting the events for different characters in tonight’s write and I have been updating my word count too. By the 18th day you should be around 30000 words, I was *up until my break- ahead on NaNo stats and so it is a tad disappointing to sit within the limit now but I know I have some time on Weds and see no reason why I can’t produce at least 1457 words a night after work (this is my limit now dropped from 1667 – to finish on time.)

I shall now share my STATS and TIPS 1nano1vikwith you and wish you continued success in this vital 3rd week of writing!

Found out my par is 30000 for the 18th and if I manage that I will back on track but not ahead, I do have weds afternoon to catch up and get ahead again and every night after work I shall do my best to write 1667  (although my average word count needed should be lower by the time I have finished writing tonight.)

TOP TIPS
  • Just keep going
  • If you fall behind that’s okay – choose a good time to sprint ahead of the pack!
  • Lots to do? Write in bite size chunks.
  • If you are writing in bite sizes keep updating your word count and watch it grow!

    • Thanks Nina – Hope you made it 🙂 sometimes those milestones roll through in quick succession, if people want to be on track for finishing at the end of November – unless they have some secret whole day writes, they need to be on target at approximately 30000 by now, I have cracked 33K tonight and hope to catch up more tomorrow.
      Good Luck

    • Wow if you started a whole week late you should really give yourself an extra week to finish. Perhaps there are some local community meets you could go to afterwards, to finish.
      Or just employ some of us as email/inbox cheerleaders to come and see you right through the extra 7 days!
