NaNoWriMo is upon us!
Day One is not quite over yet, but I didn’t want to wait until 11:59 to post this so here it is!
How are you all doing so for? How is your day one going? Did you reach your word goal yet?
I don’t really set daily word goals for myself, it’s mostly just write until I can’t feel my fingers, take a break, then write some more. The only goal I really have is writing more than 1,666 words on Day One. As the average number of words required per day is approximately 1,666 I always try to get more than that one the first day. Which I did.
As of this moment that I’m posting this I have 6,819 words.
I started at midnight last night and wrote until about 1:30am and then got up this morning and kept going. It’s crazy because I did NaNo last year and didn’t write this many words on the first day.
My novel this year is a Young Adult/Dystopian/Fantasy which, aside from the YA aspect, is totally new territory for me. I’ve never written a dystopian or a fantasy so this is pretty crazy and I have no clue what I’m doing, but that makes it a lot of fun.
If you’d like to hear more about my NaNo experiences as the month goes on you can click on the links below for my Twitter and Facebook where I’ll be posting my daily word count each night and random things that happened that day.
I’ll also be uploading a post every Saturday about that week of NaNo with updates on word count, weekly happenings, and maybe even a quote or two.
I want to hear from you! What is your book about? Are you having a good NaNo 2014 so far?
Come find me on NaNoWriMo and say hi!
