We are getting to the end of Day 1 of NaNoWriMo, and what a productive day its been! Personally I have written over 6,000 words (meaning three chapters of The Revelation Academy), and my home region has written over 45,000 together.
I’m starting to slow down now, my hands are aching and I am tired! Surprisingly tired actually as I am rather used to looking at computer screens all day for my real-life job.
I doubt I will repeat today’s achievement again as I don’t have any days coming up that are as free and clear as today, but it is a good buffer to have. I plan to write at least 1,000 words per workday and at least 2,500 per weekend day. I haven’t done the math yet but I think that will reach 50,000 by the end of the month. I will also be travelling to see family at some point this month, which means a two and a half hour journey (each way) in which I can write whilst my lovely boyfriend drives.
How are you guys competing this month doing for your first day? If you aren’t competing and you want to start, it isn’t too late, head on over to the NaNoWriMo website and sign up, my username is JLBarrett112 so look me up and we can be buddies if you want!
