NaNoWriMo: Week Two

Hi! How are you today? 

What's new?

Well, NaNoWriMo is in full swing, and that means that most of my time is spent writing. 

Yep. I'm totally getting lost in this unhinged story and enjoying every minute of it. 😅

I'm at that stage where the scenes are coming fast and I can finally see the end getting closer, somewhere on the horizon. I'm nowhere near The End yet, but I'm definitely heading there and the scenes are piling up inside my head.

Although, I did get the chance to read an excellent ARC. Which was nice because when I'm writing or revising, I usually don't have much reading time.

This is my word count for this week:
  • Monday: 22,162w (added 3215w)
  • Tuesday: 27,214w (added 5052w)
  • Wednesday: 31,276w (added 4062w)
  • Thursday: 37,439w (added 6163w)
  • Friday: 40,858w (added 3419w)
  • Saturday: 41,422w (added 564w)
  • Sunday: 42,832 (added 1410w)
As you can see, I passed the 40k mark. And that also means that my WIP is now over 100 pages. Yay!

So, reaching the 50k target will probably happen sometime next week. Fingers crossed. BUT I'll keep writing until the story is done.

Every time I sit down with my laptop (phone on the weekend) and get typing, something happens in the story that I wasn't expecting. That's always so cool, and I go with the flow. I mean, it's all heading in the same direction I imagined while taking notes, but there are a bunch of unexpected complications and details that pop up when I least expect it.

Writing can be magical sometimes. Especially when you go for a walk and realise that while your original ending was fitting, this new angle is even better. 😁

Okay, that's it for now. I just wanted to check in.

Have a great weekend!!
