NaNoWriMo Journal: Week 1 and Week 2

These past two weeks have gone by really fast. They’ve been filled with tons of writing for me. NaNoWriMo, as I’ve said in the past, is something that I thrive on. The sad part is though that I tend to really focus on the story that I’m writing and other things tend to get put off, one of which was the blog post last week. So, this post is for week 1 and week 2 of NaNoWriMo! 

Let’s recap week 1: 

On the first day of NaNo, I tend to really get ahead as much as I can. Every year I stay up till three or four in the morning and ring in the NaNo with as many words as I can before going to bed. On day 1 as you can see, I wrote over 10,000 words. After the first day, I try my hardest to write at least 1,500 to 2,000 words a day. This tends to make sure I’m ahead most of the time during NaNoWriMo.

Other than that, Week 1 was pretty good for me, though I was dealing with crazy weather and allergies that were trying to kick my butt, but other than that it was a good week.

Week 2 of NaNoWriMo 

The second week of NaNo was pretty much the same as the second, I’m still ahead of the curve, though not as far ahead as I usually am. Though this story is cracking me up and I’m having a blast writing it. Though then again, week 2 isn’t really over just yet. We’re just now starting day 12, as I’m writing this. Hopefully, I can get a couple of thousand words in today and will be doing great. Last night I passed the halfway mark which is super exciting.

As far as prizes go, I’ve gotten BTS stickers and a new apple pencil cover, and I get to order my BTS coffee travel mug today. Also, I’m getting ready to head to Starbucks for coffee and some writing time. It should be a good day! 

All in all my NaNo experience this year has been a great one so far. If you would like to be NaNo buddies on the sight and your writing this year, you can find my profile here.

Let me know how your writing or reading week has gone in the comments. I hope you all have a great weekend and week next week.
