NaNoWriMo 2017 Update

I'm feeling so good.  I had a couple rough days, largely due to kiddos, but I have been able to make up for them and am still very much on track to finish on time!  I'm so excited.  I just struggle not to get ahead of myself in the process as well as not edit as I go, which I can be pretty bad about.

Rough drafts are supposed to be bad - that's what edits are for!  The story is flowing though, granted love scenes are surprisingly hard to write.  That's what wine and a bowl of skittles is for though! 

How about y'all?  Anybody participating in NaNoWriMo?  Are you an established author or just starting out like me?  Tell me about it!!

NaNoWriMo 2017 Update

So things are looking pretty good!  The NaNoWriMo site basically says that you need to write an average of 1667 words per day to finish on time.  I'm aiming for an even 1700 a day.  I had a rough weekend writing wise, so I'm a tad behind, but I'm making it up and still very much on track.  I'm excited that I'm succeeding (so far) and just writing the story that's in my head.  It feels so good to finally be able to sit down and make time to do this.  Regardless of how this turns out, I'm going to do more.

So the goal is 50k words in 30 days.  By the end of yesterday, I needed to have approximately 10,200 words.  I made up for nearly all of my missing word counts from the weekend and currently sit at 10,401 words.  YAY.
