This nanowrimo I’d intended to try to beat my best ever one-day total which stands at around 5,000 words. One thing and another got in the way and I haven’t actually sat down and written uninterrupted for a whole day.
Today is the last chance. By 3.30pm I will be home with a whole evening alone ahead of me. I have 7,500 words left to get to 50k. I’ve planned the next few chapters and I’m going to have a crack at getting to 50,000 words tonight.
I’ll blog progress updates as the afternoon and evening progress.
5.40pm: I’ve done my first 3,000 words in about 2 hours. The story is flowing fairly well, although my recently healed broken wrist is a bit sore. I probably picked up my heavy suitcase too much yesterday!
9.00pm: Progress is going well, despite a bit of a hiatus to cook dinner and watch Celebrity Strictly Come Dancing. I’ve written 5,482 words tonight for a running total of 48,150. I’m not the most disciplined person for just sitting down and writing but I do love a good deadline and after 26 days of this my writing focus is relatively good.
11.12pm: it’s all over 🙂 50,072 words, 7,404 today.
