NaNoWriMo word count update

It’s not looking good for winning NaNo this year if you consider I have five days in which to complete, but at least I made it just past 10000 words tonight.

I didn’t get as much writing done today as I would have liked, but I was distracted (sure do have a hard time with that!) … and I spent quality time with Dad. He would have said, “You go write!” but that’s not fair to him so I set my writing aside and we worked on word puzzles and a jigsaw puzzle together. It has been an exceptionally good week thus far, for which I’m thankful.

I would continue writing more on my NaNo novel tonight but it is past midnight and I think I hear my pillow calling me.

In case you didn’t notice, I added a new blog page called NaNoWriMo Updates (2011) on which I am keeping track of my progress.  (Note the pretty badges I am awarding myself as I go along.) I have been the tortoise in this event, but I’m hoping to morph into the hare near the end and win this challenge – and thereby finish my novel. We shall see what happens. 🙂

Thanks for reading, and believing in me … and Creative Musings!  🙂

  1. Any writing done is good. Do not be discouraged! You have done well. I do not believe it is a matter of getting to 50k to “win”. If you’ve made any progress, then you are a winner! I have maybe only 2k words. But I have progessed in the outline. November is not a good month to “just write” and the way my brain works will not allow me to “just write”. I know I will never be able to win according to NaNo’s rules. But like I said, even if you’ve written any type of progress, 100 to 100k, you are a winner!


    • Thanks, LadyJai. I just have to keep reminding myself that any amount is success, having tried is success.
      According to NaNo’s “rules”, they are bendable. I am a NaNo Rebel this time since I did not start fresh but picked up in the middle of the novel I started last year, and trying to work to the end.
      In keeping with what you stated, I think you should post your 2k words total on there. You are a winner, too!
      🙂 Blessings


I look forward to reading your greatly appreciated comments. Thanks for making my day! :)
