How is everyone doing? Managing to get your words done?
If not, don’t worry – I always find hitting the daily word targets is always harder mid-week than it is at weekends, usually because mid-week we’ve all got work and other commitments demanding our attention.
Writing little and often works a charm sometimes – 15 minutes here, 15 minutes there. They all add up in the long run, and a month of intense writing is certainly a long run!
For myself, I’m happy with what I’ve got so far – 6517 words at the moment. I had the 1st day of NaNoWriMo off work, or else I’d be way behind. I’m hoping to get a little further ahead with a few sprints tonight as I’ve got family visiting over the weekend so opportunities to sneak away and get some writing done will be few and far between.
I have to say, too, that Write or Die – both the online version for when I’m sneakily writing in lunch breaks at work and the paid for version I use when I’m at home – is a Godsend when it comes to NaNoWriMo and keeping track of the time during sprints.
Good luck, everyone, and remember to try and enjoy the experience – there’s no point doing it if you don’t!
Well, back to the writing I go… I don’t think these 200+ words count! 😉
