One week down, and I’m pretty pleased with my progress. I’m trying to stick to my own daily word count goal this year, upping the ante by just about 300 words to shoot for 2,000 a day, and so far, so good. It’d be better if I could do 2,500 a day, but I am trying to remain realistic with my schedule.
Total as of last night: 11,145 words
So far, I have attended 4 NaNo events in person this year (also, ever). They’ve been great, all for different reasons. Tuesday, not only did one of my awesome fellow wrimos finagle a discount at the coffee shop where he works and where we had the write-in, but the atmosphere was perfect. Fun music, but not too loud. Warm, cozy wood accents and general comfy-ness. Plus, I got there late so everybody was already in the zone that it made it easy for me to join them and crank out a good chunk of words in under an hour.
Last night, I got a little less done, word-count wise, at the write-in, but I got to be a little more social than yesterday’s write-in, and that’s more the reason to go, in my mind. Personally, I can write anywhere. I’ll do it old-school with a pen and napkin if push comes to shove. So for me, the write-ins are not ALL about boosting my word count in a quiet environment surrounded by fellow writers. They’re more a place to share an experience and discuss the process, the enjoyment we derive from it, and the challenges we face as we pursue this crazy 50,000-word goal.
The actual writing part
The story itself is… evolving. I’m sort of stuck with my main character as a child. She’s in her Padawan phase learning from her Yoda at the moment, and it’s important expository stuff, but it feels like it’s lollygagging.
I want to push her forward, but I need something violent and swift to happen in the plot before I can surge ahead a few years in the timeline. I have something in mind, I just have to stop dragging my feet and having the eight-year-old keep asking more and more questions, and actually get to the violent, hostile takeover bit (it’s not really a hostile takeover, but it’s in the spirit of that type of event, so you get the idea).
I’m totally burned out from lack of sleep at the moment (though that’s more due to my poor time-keeping than my noveling), but I’m looking forward to the weekend which will entail a showing of Thor: The Dark World, possibly a Nano marathon on Saturday, some more writing (of course), and some much-needed rest.
Cheers! Until next time!
