Well it’s a been a whole week since November and NaNoWriMo started and I’d like to think I’m doing good so far!
On the first day I wrote over 5,000 words. Amazing huh? I didn’t get to do much over the weekend mind as I was busy seeing my boyfriend, as well as attending an all day gig that Four Floors Of Whores were attending, which I of course took pictures of.
Right now as I’m writing this I’m not only shamefully listening to Wrecking Ball (not even joking ladies and possible gents!) I’m also on 12,217 words for my novel. I would have been on more, probably 15,000 but I took my Mom late night shopping yesterday after work and I didn’t get home until after 11pm so I was far too tired to turn my laptop on and get on with any writing, sad to say.
However I have the morning to myself before I am whisked off by my boyfriend to Wolverhampton for Four Floors Of Whores last gig of the year whilst the two guitarists go off to have their babies. 🙂
I won’t lie, on day 5 I actually contemplated giving up but I’m really glad I never because I know I would have regretted it otherwise. I was suffering from a mild outbreak of writers block (as well as tiredness after work) and I think I was worrying about whether or not work would interfere with me writing or not, but so far it hasn’t done that at all.
So really as soon as I get home from my close shift at work, I just get on with my writing and attempt to write as much as possible, which I’ll be doing as soon as this post is written. 😛
I’m rather proud of myself for how much I’ve done so far, although a part of me wishes I had written more but that’s just the type of writer I am and have always been and throughout the past week I’ve moaned how badly I’m doing, even though my friend Amy (who is also taking part in NaNoWriMo) and my boyfriend have both commented on how well I’m doing right now.
Speaking of Amy, I want to just give a mini shout out to her. She’s been doing amazing this year so far for NaNoWriMo and is currently on over 15,000 words! As well as this she has also started writing on her blog again, as well as giving it a brand new name! She does amazing reviews for make up products and I would recommend you checking her out over at vondork.blogspot.co.uk
I finally got to meet Amy after probably five years of knowing her online and it was amazing to meet her, she was so lovely and bubbly but I’m saving all the details for a blog post in the next week or so, so keep your eyes peeled for that.
I can safely say my music has changed from Miley Cyrus to Calvin Harris (ooft!) so now I’m off to get on with some more writing.
Are you taking part in NaNoWriMo this year, if so how are you getting on so far? Let me know in the comments down below.
Until next Friday, take care all and I hope everyone is doing well so far this November.
