NaNoWriMo – Day 24

313 words tonight.  It feels like I’m coming to some sticky situations with the way the story is going.  With being so close to the end of NaNoWriMo I can’t afford to spend several days going through the plan and framework again, so will just churn out words and force them in the right direction.  It will all be good in the end.

NaNoWriMo – Ben & Jerry’s Day 23

I wrote tonight’s word count whilst happily chomping through some Ben and Jerry’s ice cream.  Although delicious it was a bit distracting trying to type with both hands whilst holding a spoon so I don’t think I’ll be doing it again but it was fun to do.

261 tonight. The dream sequence from last night has finished but I think I’ll be padding it out at a later date, it was great to write but feel like it is missing some more fun and silliness.

NaNoWriMo – Dream Sequence! Day 22

Words tonight, I didn’t write last night so have continued with it tonight instead.  I’m writing a dream sequence for the protagonist, it’s metaphorical, maybe has some foreshadowing which is very fun to write.

NaNoWriMo – Strictly Day 18

I’ve had to start later tonight so I can watch Strictly Come Dancing.  After it finished I churned out 468 words.  I’ve got around 15000 words in total, after re-writes, edits and a lot more blood, sweat and tears to come, I feel like I’ve barely scratched the surface with it but it’s all coming out of my head and into visual text so it’s something I’m very proud of!
