NaNoWriMo Journal: Days 12-14

Hello everyone, so I didn’t blog any this past weekend, but I wanted to jump on here and give you a quick update and glimpse at why I didn’t blog. I did get some writing in and I surpassed the 40k point on the 14th, but part of the weekend I ended up with a headache. So that’s the main reason I didn’t get the blog posts up on time. Figured since there wasn’t much to post on the update anyway, a weekend blog might be the better way to go as well. So, here we go!

Friday Nov. 12th

Friday I was able to get 1,356 words in for my NaNoWriMo project, which isn’t too bad. I was shooting for 2000 words, but it just didn’t happen. Here’s my take on that though, at least I got new words! I’m pretty far ahead so I didn’t get too upset with myself for not reaching my normal 2000 words a day goal.

Saturday, Nov. 13th

So Saturday wasn’t a bust, even though I still had a bit of a headache. I was able to complete three sprints and surpassed my daily goal of 2000 words, with 2,076 words. I had wanted to take some time and write outside, but mother nature had different plans and sent a bunch of rain. So that plan didn’t happen, but I did write on the couch during sprints instead of at my desk. Though I probably won’t do that again, because it was really comfy and I almost fell asleep…lesson learned! I might try it again when I don’t have a headache though because I did enjoy watching Youtube sprints on my TV.

Sunday, Nov. 14th

Now Sunday I didn’t have a bad headache, so I did get a bunch of words in. Once again I surpassed my daily goal! Sunday night I participated in sprints on Twitch with a writer friend of mine and I was able to write 3,371 words in four sprints. That pushed me past that 40k mark which of course made me super happy!

Ended the night with two new badges on the NaNoWriMo site, both the 14 days in a row and the 40K badge! Am I the only one that enjoys collecting the badges each year? I know, I’m probably the only weirdo who does. The site also shows me finishing and winning NaNo on November…

All in all, Sunday was a great day and my best day this week!
