My plod through NANOWRIMO continues
Day 14 – slogging through the doldrums, which appear to have been transformed into peanut butter and I am a turtle attempting to stampede through it – 442
Day 15 – Halfway mark of the month. Halfway to word count? … No. Halfway through the novel … No. Halfway to losing my marbles? Already done that … 1369
Day 16 – URGHH … Why did I decide this was a good idea. I hate writing. 1253
Day 17 – Insert random head desk gif … 922
Day 18 & Day 19 – PING WING INKLINGS Getaway aka: Operation Blackjack and Hookers. 6 people left Auckland… 6 people arrived in Mangakino with copious amounts of alcohol. Lots of shots and giggles… not much writing – 770 Day 2 proved that coffee can fix anything and being hungover does wonders for your word count 🙂 Wordiest day in history – 3345
Day 20 -Well… today didn’t suck and proves that I can actually write on a Monday… despite what my previous Monday’s have been like. So close to the 1/2 way mark. 768
Day 21 – Finally hit the halfway mark… thank god. Wait… what do you mean it’s not the 15th of the month… DAMN IT. Need at least 2500 per day to finish on time – 2531 – chapter 9 done. Danni is still sassy and it’s rubbing off on Jess
Day 22 Still needing at least 2500 to finish on time. I wonder if I tell myself I need 3k if I’ll get it.- 2073 – Chapter 9.5 Done. Same chapter as 9 but from Alix’s point of view… man does he talk.
Day 23 – the day I asked a simple question in a chat room full of writers …. And got a million different answers.
All I asked was: What sound does a takeaway coffee cup make when placed on a coffee table. What I ended up with was:
chapter 7 written and completed. The one where Alix and Westley talk … and share feelings. Oh. And drink coffee from takeaway cups that make a light tap sound when placed on a wood coffee table. – 2469
Word Count to date: 30339
Marbles lost – all of them
Plot bunnies killed – Ummm too many to count
Grey hairs – now that would be telling.
