NaNoWriMo Journal Day 2

Daily Update

It’s day 2 of NaNoWriMo 2021 and I’m loving my progress so far. I didn’t sit down and plan to write tons today like I did yesterday, but I ended up with 4,035 words added to my total. The best part about it is I actually like the words I’ve written so far. Sometimes while writing for NaNo I look at the words and I’m like yeah those words will not be left like that when I go to self-edit, but so far I’m loving everything I’ve written.

I wrote a really sad emotional scene today and I was sitting at my desk crying my eyes out while I wrote it. I’m hoping that means something. I mean if I can make myself cry, hopefully, that means my readers will connect with the scene as well. Fingers crossed!

I really got in the groove yesterday, didn’t participate in as many sprints as the first day, but the words were flowing and I didn’t want to stop. But I had to mainly because my kiddos decided they wanted to play a game and well I really enjoy that time with them. Anyway, I participated in a total of five sprints, each of those running for 25 minutes at a time with five-minute breaks in between. Those are the ones where I really get into the flow of writing. It’s like my sweet spot when it comes to time.

Didn’t get any prizes today, but I’m really close to reaching my next goal. According to the NaNo site, I should finish NaNo by next week, not sure that will happen, but it’s a good motivator.

My Stats Right Now

As of the end of day 2, I’m sitting at 13, 558 words. I’ve completed 18 of the 83 sprints that I need to do to finish my first draft. Which is super exciting! So far I’m doing great and can’t wait to start writing on day 3!
