By the time you read this I will be ten days into nanowrimo. In theory I will have written 16,670 words. I am hoping that that is more than a theory – I did entertain the rather silly notion of getting 10,000 words a day done in this week as I have been off work for most of it. At least I can get ahead of where I need to be. That should be doable right?
As I write it is 2333 on the 4th and I am 45 words ahead. I have been playing catch up. Due to other commitments I was unable to write much on the first two days. In fact on the 2nd I got no words in at all! Now all I have to do is stay ahead so I can reach that target!
So how is this thing going? Well the title is confusion so I’ll let you judge. Actually in truth it is not going so badly but one of the problems with not planning is that ideas come at you as you write. Therefore certain elements in the plot may be repetitious, irrelevant, or in need of change. I don’t see that as a big issue necessarily – that is why we have editors.
I thought about updating this across the week however that is something I am likely to forget – I do not organise this kind of stuff too well. As I write I am (It is the 7th now) 320 words ahead. I am off tomorrow (8th) too and then back to work so I will be doing more writing today – I should probably try to get outside too. I don’t think that will happen.
I just wanted to say that I have checked this post. I really have. Unfortunately my particular combination of dyslexia and dyspraxia makes it really hard for me to spot typos. Please enjoy and I’ll try not to make too many errors.
