NaNoWriMo ’17 – The Day After

Hello all.

Well NaNo is done for another year, I didn’t “win” but despite the various things that got in the way I did manage to put words to screen every day of the month. Which as anyone knows is actually an accomplishment, some days just don’t lend themselves to any writing time.

As I mentioned a few days ago I’m going to try to continue my writing momentum and write something every day. Be it a new post on this blog or new words on a story. My NaNo has a lot of story left to go, I just need to figure out how to get from where I am to where I want it to be.

So for all you winners out there, great job. And for all you who gave it your best, WAY TO GO!

NaNoWriMo ’17 – Day 28

The end of the month approaches and my available writing time looks to be fairly small for the next few days. I’m keeping at it and unless something goes very wrong I will at least log 30 days of words for the month.

My graph on NaNoWriMo.org is looking fairly flat at the moment, but there is a slight upward slope. I hope to put a bit more curve to it over the next few days.

NaNoWriMo ’17 – Day 25

Good morning everyone,

I hope that everyone here in the US had a good holiday. Things have been fun but busy/crazy so my word counts have been nothing to write home about. But I have made certain to write something every day so I’ve managed to continue my words every day streak.

I will be behind the wheel most of today so my numbers will probably be low again, but I hope to get some serious numbers in tomorrow.

I’m contemplating finishing out the month but shifting to more of the “hundred days of words” or something similar now that I’m starting to build a writing habit again.

NaNoWriMo ’17 – Day 21

Good morning,

Sorry about not getting a status update posted yesterday. I planned to get back down and write one up and put a few more hundred words to the story, however that just isn’t how life played out.

I’m starting to reach the point where I wonder if it will be at all possible to make the 50k goal, my per day to win at this point is knocking on “really good day” territory. I’m not giving up, I’ve had too many years where for one reason or another my progress completely stops around this point, and I would rather have the graph end short of goal than a flat line for the last third.

NaNoWriMo ’17 – Day 18

Day 17 is behind us, and most of 18 by now. I am continuing to make forward progress but don’t expect to log too much today as I’m just as exhausted from the race as I expected.

The run this morning went well and was fun as always, even with basically no training I managed to finish within about 30 seconds of last years time. Given everything I’m happy with a finish of 2:00:01.  Laria hurt her ankle at the first creek crossing around mile 3, so that also slowed us down a bit.

All told it has been a fun, if draining day. Keep writing!

NaNoWriMo ’17 – Day 17

Still plugging away at things, getting a few hundred more words in yesterday and today. Trying to get psyched up for the Living History Farms “Road-o-Cross” off road race tomorrow morning. 7 miles of very cross country running; fields, hills and multiple creek crossings. We don’t have any snow on the ground this year and things are fairly dry, but it is going to be cold and with the crossings I expect it is still going to be really messy. But it will be a blast.
