NaNoWriMo – onward and upward

nanowrimo 2018

Week 2

This morning, having once again had a terrible Thursday – not even one paragraph completed – I was feeling discouraged. The whole day before me and I just couldn’t get going. Maybe I’d put my characters through too much in the last couple of chapters? Charred bodies? Too gruesome for a middle grade story?

Leave it. Move on. I can always tone it down later.

Then after doing a spot of ‘real work’ up they popped, ready to go. Now Chapter 10 is all finished and I’m pretty much on track for my 30,000 word target for the month – 14,290 to be precise – and they’re ‘all good’ words (I think).

So, onward and upward to fellow ‘NaNo’s next week, and to everyone else busy toiling at the keyboard!

  1. Way to go! I am so far behind, I am not even going to worry about catching up. I am working on Chapters 3 and 4 to post later today. Slowly but surely the next one is getting started lol.

  2. Sounds like a case of “writer’s block”, but glad you got going again. I am in somewhat of an “artist’s block” with my ABC animals. I’m all the way to “Y” and my attempt at drawing a yak met with less than desirable results LOL
