NaNoWriMo Update – Day 25

Hello everyone! Again I must apologise for not posting in a while, I have been writing a fair amount. My word count is currently at 37,248, a little behind but I will be spending the majority of tomorrow getting back on track. I fully plan to be well over 40,000 by the end of the weekend.

I hope all of you who have been participating are doing well, word count wise as well as in general. Remember to take care of yourself as you write to the finish line! And if you are behind like I am, do remember that any amount you have written is more than you started with. Any amount of word count is an achievement!

As well as my NaNo novel I have been working on some short stories, one of which I posted last week. I plan to post a second in the next week, the first draft is written but it needs a decent re-write before it’s ready for human consumption. Also I plan to post an excerpt of my NaNo novel for dissecting at some point during December. Please feel free to be as brutal as you want whilst commenting on it.

I am planning on adding to my Writers Hack series in December as well as potentially another series, although I’m not sure on the topic just yet. If anyone has any ideas or requests I am open to suggestions!

Out of curiosity what do my fellow writers do whilst writing? What are your set-ups? Do you listen to music or do you avoid it? Do you write in silence or do you like to write in a busy environment, using the hustle and bustle of normal life to fuel your story?

  1. Congrats on your progress!
    Personally I tend to avoid music, as I need all my energy to concentrate and I can’t help dancing or singing when there’s music. However, I don’t mind some calm piano music sometimes to help me focus. What about you?
