NaNo 2017 – Day 10 – A Mixed Bag

Day 10 was a mixed bag for writing. I didn’t start to work on my NaNoWriMo project until about 5:30 PM when we were driving up to Red Deer. I managed about 700 words on that drive. Then I had 45 minutes before I went to see Thor. I managed to go over the 2,000 word (about 1,300 additional words in about 45 minutes). Challenges for the Day I had lots going on. I had to find a couple spots to do my writing. Not really any continuous time. Number of Words for the Day:  2048 words It was another tough day of writing.

I’m not actually sure how much of the writing was good and how much was ‘meh’ but it was […]

NaNo 2017 – Day 2 (AKA I have a chapter!)

An amazing thing happened today – I realized I finished the first chapter of my soon-to-be masterpiece. This is important to note as the very first book I wrote took me twenty-five (25) tries and several months. I have now managed it in one try and two days. Perfect first chapter? Not by a long shot. Written and therefore editable? Absolutely! Challenges for the Day Work. Again. Not that it was a bad day. It was quite good actually but it does take away from writing books time. 🙂 We also had the whole family together for dinner. That is a rare thing with both my kids/young adults/young grownups having their own lives. It was awesome but also meant I […]
