NaNoWriMo Week 4

well, this week’s been shit …

I have no steam. I feel a bit like a balloon whos reached the upper atmosphere and is just floating about deflating.

The goal is to write 50 000 words in 30 days from 1st November to the 30th November. It can be whatever you want to write, but I did the classic and started the 1st chapter of my new novel 🤗

I’m currently on chapter 16 🤯


Progress

I have yet to start my Sunday session, but yesterday I wrote 2996 words 😱. My weekend plan is to just write.

I’ve been in a slump for the entire week. I did do well on Wednesday at about 2k, but not as well as I hoped. I wrote 14 words on Tuesday and 13 words on Friday 🤦‍♀️ Monday was 80 words and Thursday was around 400 words. So I arrived on Saturday thinking I’ll have to catch up or it’s not going to happen at all. I clearly ran out of steam. I still have tons of material and miles left for them to travel. I just don’t have the typing skills to get the words out. Saturday I thought I would just sit down type words as see where it got me. I skipped the end of the scene I was on – I clearly had issues with it – and started fresh. After a difficult 450 words, it became easier. Then after 1800 words I was just going to add a few more words (20-50ish) and wrote another 400 words 🤷‍♀️😁 I did a total of 2996 words – yay me!

I think I’m out of the slump. I just need to keep it up and keep going. Write more every day and get it out. I’m off work until Thursday next week so I will hopefully have time and energy to finish this.

At this moment my NaNo graph looks like this:

This is how my bullet journal word count tracker is currently looking. I colour in a new box for every 1k I write. There are 49 boxes. When I hit 50k I will ink in and colour the sparkling stars you could barely make out.

This is my NaNo gem 💎 😂

My Hands

There has been no change since last week. I have no major pains. Well, not more than usual anyway. I do have some numbness in my hands in the mornings which is weird but it passes quickly.

I’m actually surprised I don’t have more pain. But I guess its because I always do my exercises and always take care.

I’m good 👍

Word by word. Not day by day.
