Hello everyone!!! It is the end of Day 1, and I am about 2000 words into my novel. I did a little bit of the write-in earlier on NaNoWriMo’s youtube channel which can be found here 🙂 There will be lots of write-ins happening throughout the month on Nano’s youtube I’ll give you guys the schedule.
~11/4/17 9:00 AM pst, ~11/4/17 12:00 PM pst, ~11/4/17 3:00 PM pst , ~11/5/17 10:00 AM PST, ~11/7/17 1:00 PM pst, ~11/14/17 1:00 PM pst, ~11/18/17 4:30 PM pst, ~11/21/17 1:00 PM pst ~11/25/17 10:00 PM pst, ~11/28/17 1:00PM pst
For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about here’s a run down; NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month which takes place in the month of November. It’s where you commit to writing a 50,000 word novel throughout the month of November. Now if you are currently writing a novel and want to continue with it for NaNo you can, you just cant count the already existing words. You must write a brand new 50,000 words in the month. Now I know that’s a scary scary number to think about accomplishing in a month. If you write anywhere from 1500-2000 words a day you will finish on time. If you don’t accomplish 50k that is okay, the most important thing is 1. You tried and 2. You committed to something.
My biggest advice is don’t stress yourself out, and don’t worry about quality just worry about quantity. Don’t write oo much all at once so you get sick of it and stop a week or so into NaNo. Pace yourself, set up a schedule of daily goals to keep yourself on track. Talk to friends who are writing, try and keep each other on track.
I hope everyone is having a great start to NaNo! Happy writing everyone! Comment down below your word accomplishment for day 1.
See you guys tomorrow with another Nano update!
