Nanowrimo Day 1 and 2

If you don’t know, National Novel Writing Month kicked off today, starting the 30 day stretch to hit 50,000 words for a novel. The days are broken into smaller goals of 1,667 words.

I want to get back to writing. I want to get my projects finished. Even if they’re not perfect, I want to be proud of what I did. So I’m participating in NaNoWriMo with the hopes that focusing away from the projects I’ve been stuck on forever and getting used to writing on a schedule will help me move past this rut I’m in.

So my novel for this month is called House Party, Descensio. It’s a suspense/fantasy/comedy. Or so I’m planning. But as it’s for fun, I can do whatever I want.

So I’ve spent about the same amount of time making the ridiculous cover as I did writing today, but hey, any progress is progress.

I also started a new job today. And the election is tomorrow, for us Americans. I must say, I CANNOT wait until this election is over and done with so I can stop seeing so many political ads. The worst is when I’m running at the gym and each TV has a different political attack ad on. Like, can someone who knows about the history of politics tell me if there was ever a time when presidents used their own merits as campaign points, not just the shortcomings of the opponents?

But I digress. Writing is going okay, but it’s only day two. Hopefully I can keep a steady habit for the next 28!

November 1st word count: 1694
November 2nd word count: 2993

Let me know in the comments if you’re also doing NaNoWriMo this month! What’s your motivation, and have you participated before?

  1. Hi there! I’m doing NaNoWriMo for the third time this year. Last year I drafted my second complete novel and it’s coming out next year! So this year I’m trying to repeat the performance and have book three ready shortly afterwards. Considering book one took me about ten years to complete, I think the quick and dirty drafting model NaNoWriMo encourages is a great fit for me, lol. Good luck with your project!
