Camp NaNoWriMo Day 6

Today was a great writing day. Not only did I sleep great, but thanks to the boost of hazelnut coffee (my favorite), I was totally prepared to tackle the next chapter.

I’m surprised how ahead of schedule I am staying this month. When I did my first NaNoWriMo, I really struggled to get the word count done every day (often times even when I got it done it was only a few words above the minimum). Personally, I think it has to do with how passionate I am about this story. I have so much information in my head about this era and the characters that it helps me never have writer’s block.

Daily Summary

Words written today: 2,390

Total words written: 13,114/50,000

Goal words needed: 9,678/50,000

Difference: 3,436 words ahead of schedule.

Current chapter: Chapter 4

Time spent writing: 2 hours

Current weather: It’s a lovely, lovely day again (and I’m stuck inside working).

Tips: Because this is quite a bulky book that I’m writing with new background characters coming in a lot, I’m keeping a cheat sheet listing all the characters as I add them, both for me to keep track of how many characters I have and to remember names and their positions.

Extra notes: Weirdly enough, if I’m writing a somber scene, I like to listen to depressing ballads. Right now, I’m totally obsessed with “Hold On” by Chord Overstreet.


Day 6 complete! See you tomorrow!
