Week one of NaNoWriMo is done, and now we move on to another hard week of writing. I'm taking a break from my story to give you guys a little update, if you are at all interest in how things are going. Because I should probably be writing at the moment, I apologize for how quick this post is.
So far I'm doing pretty well, I've been getting all my words in and I'm still on track! It's been a very crazy attempt for me. Up until this point the longest story I had ever written was just over 13,000 words long, and now as you can see from the widget at the very top of the right hand side of my page, I'm already past that. The story that I wrote that was 13,000 words long I wrote over the course of four months. Beating that count in a week is quite a jump, but I'm proud I've made it!
The first three days were the best writing days for me, since then I have been making it, but it's been a lot harder than it was. Recently the only reason I've been getting in my daily words has been because of the wonderfully helpful word war and three digit threads. I also participated in on write-in so far, and it also helped quite a lot. I think I'll win this year! Before I started writing I was watching several pep-talk videos on youtube, and a lot of that advice I got from several vloggers have helped a lot.
The biggest draw back of NaNoWriMo is diffidently the fact that I barely have time to read anything. Since the start of the month I have only finished one book, Unspoken by Sara Reese Brennan, and I started reading Velveteen. I'm not sure I'm in the mood for a book like Velveteen though, so I'm not sure that I'll continue. I have, however read a lot of manga. I might be finishing the Full Alchemist series this next few days.
I really should go back to my writing now! I would love to hear form you in the comments!
