It is 6:14 and I am just now getting ready to write. My personal word count goal for the day is 1,000 words. I am giving myself a little bit of a break today, but I plan on going harder tomorrow with my goal. But, no spoilers on what that will be. Insert a winky face here.
I vanished. I managed only to get about 20 or so words before my son woke up. He’s pretending to nap right now, so I’m going to try to squeeze some words out. This is a game we play. His sister goes down for her nap and then he says he wants one, only to pop up a few minutes later with a “HAHA TRICKED YA.” So, I really shouldn’t be writing here. Going to go hop over to the other monitor and write. HUZZAH!
I did some writing! My son actually did fall asleep, and I streamed again. I apparently really like streaming myself while writing this novel. Bizarre. This isn’t me. I blame the year 2020. Anyway, I passed my personal goal of 1,00 words today and I wrote 1,690! My current count for the novel is: 8,955. I am done writing the novel for the day.
Chapters one and two are complete… ish. I wanna add some to a couple scenes but for the most part they are done and I’m sailing into chapter three. I am currently working on a scene that I’ve been itching to write. The closest thing I’ll have to a flashback. I get to throw all of my memories of feelings of first friendships into this scene, and I’m pumped for it.
I am starting to get a feel for Wren. Her voice is starting to come more and more easily to me, and to feel more real. Less stilted and fake. This is good, and we’ll see if I can keep it up.
Y’all. NaNoWriMo is going great for me right now and I am going to bask in that feeling because I know… I know a wall is going to come and hit me. Or I’ll smack into it. But I kind of like the mental image of the wall being the active individual and hitting me.
Okay, my daughter sounds like she is awake so I’ll end this writing blog right now.
Catch y’all later!
