NaNoWriMo: Week Four


The fourth week is almost over. We're hitting the bottom end of November, and December is just around the corner. 

So how's your NaNo novel going?

As I mentioned in my post earlier this week, I validated my NaNoWriMo WIP on Tuesday. Then I took Wednesday off to read Peter Pan. On Thursday I read Beauty and the Beast, grabbed the random scrap pieces of paper & sticky notes I collected while writing my WIP, and added all the relevant info to my notebook. Oh, and I started a Revision List.

I even re-read one of my short stories and ended up revising it! I only meant to read the beginning on my Kindle, but got so caught up I kept going. LOL. I'm thinking about subbing this one.

Anyway, here's this week's w/c:
  • Monday: 53,144 (added 1419w) 
  • Tuesday: 53,623 (added 479w) 

So the final word count ended up being 53k, which I'm really happy with. I'm seriously excited about this first draft because although there's plenty of heartbreak and a bittersweet ending, this story makes me very happy. It captured something I'd envisioned in a way I thought would only work inside my head but translated very well outside of it too. 

Of course, this happiness could just be because I'm still in that fully-in-love-with-my-own-book stupor. 😊

Today I made the short story changes to the Word doc, updated all my inspirational pics, got a bit of housework done, and sat down to read for a bit. I was originally going to watch a movie but my head's too scrambled to concentrate on a screen and TBH, more and more, I find reading the most appealing way to unwind. (No surprise there.)

Well, that's it for this week's update. I'm looking forward to spending the weekend with hubby

Have an awesome one!
