Still writing. Still haven’t given up. I’m at 44488 words which means with a 2000 each day I can do it just in time. I can do it. I can do it. I can do it. I can do it.
When day ten started I had the feeling that I was going to fall a bit behind the target and unfortunately I wasn’t wrong. In the early morning I still managed to write a bit over four hundred words but then that was it. I had to go to work and after eight hours running up and down (because everyone decided to have drink-in coffees and to buy chocolate) I was reeeeallly tired when I got on the train. I almost fell asleep so didn’t write. It was a busy evening with a long night out. I know I’m not supposed to go out while nanoing, but common it was my boyfriend’s birthday! Today, I tried to do some catching up, but wasn’t very successful as I rather spent time with him but still managed to write 1400 or so. So next week I guess I’m gonna have to extend my daily targets to 2000. I’m getting tired and the to-do list is just piling up. Still I don’t want to give up. I’m much more stubborn than that!
WOW, 10000 words are done. We’re almost a week in the competition and I’m still standing. My story’s getting a bit spooky with scary ghosts lingering around. I’m not sure how they came in picture or what is their intention, but let’s hope I will find out eventually.
Thanks to my amazing start, I’m still on target with over 6800 words. Although now that I don’t have all the time in the world to write it goes a bit slower. But my story is getting more and more interesting. My main character is doing what she was expected to do: she lives and gives me stuff to write about. Overall I’m still happy with what I’ve done and look forward to the next week (when I’m finally back to work yay!).
When I opened a new Open Office document this morning, I didn’t think I would almost double the daily word count today. I was afraid that as soon as I run out of the first ideas (I didn’t plan the whole plot, only how I would start) I would be doomed. But I’m not! There are new ones coming so I can see the next step of the journey. If it keeps coming like this, I will be happy.
Now I’m off to get some sleep and tomorrow morning relaxed and fresh I could start writing again.
