Hi, everyone! I’m sure you’ve noticed I haven’t been posting these past few days, but I have a perfectly good explanation! As you can see from the title, this year I’ve decided it was time to try this November challenge of writing 50,000 words. Well, not just any 50,000 words but a novel. I’ve been really excited about this, but also very scared. It’s day 7 and let’s say things aren’t going that well.
The first day went really well. I hadn’t prepared anything at all and just got the idea for a potential novel the day before starting the challenge. So, the first day, I just wrote. I hate planning these things because I feel that I’m not great at writing under pressure. I like writing about whatever I feel like and more importantly, whenever I feel like it. I know this goes completely against the purpose of this challenge, but that’s why I decided to enrol this year. It is truly a challenge for me. So, if you’re interested, I’ve only written 3 days out of 7 (today’s the 7th one and I’m hoping to write a little more, but at this point, who knows if I will). I’m way beyond my daily targets (and week goals for that matter) and it’s fair to say this challenge is kicking my derrière. I want to share my story here with you but I also hate how unfinished and messy it will look. So, my question is, should I share it here? Maybe a chapter at a time, even though it won’t be edited nor be the finished, final work? Let me know what you think and please tell me I’m not the only one drowning in this NaNoWriMo!
