DAY 10: My wordcount is a Microrganism

So tired. Didn’t manage to start writing until gone 10pm. 15 minute word-sprint. Fell asleep for last five minutes of it. Time to call it a night.

Good Night

Today’s word-count: 340 words


DAY 9: Done some Writing.

I am still around 2K behind, but have written todays quota after a walk in the park with my Granddaughter and cooking Sunday roast for the whole family.

Hopefully I can be more organised this coming week and get some writing done before work to avoid having to stay up late to catch up.

Here’s hoping I can avoid the notorious week 2 blues.

Word-count today: 1703 words

DAY 8: Ups and Downs

Today I unexpectedly managed to catch some time between a trip to Play Barn and playing with teddy bears to catch up on yesterday’s words. Don’t judge me; my granddaughter did join in the fun. So I have now got my (virtual) nanowrimo badge for hitting 10K.

Honestly, I did intend to put in a few more words towards today’s target. I decided to catch up on my social media accounts first, but that ended up being a time vortex into failure. I need to tidy up my facebook feed in particular; the number of notifications I’m getting is just stupid.

Enough with that already. So I’m still behind, but there’s no need to panic. According to the handy nano stats I only need 1,725 words per day to finish on time (that’s if I didn’t plan to catch up already).

nb: I did not manage to write anything before Granddaughter woke up this morning as she was wide awake at 5:30am.

Words written today: 884 words

Total Word-count: 10326 words

DAY 7: Damage Limitation

Okay, so I haven’t accomplished the full word-count for today. Considering I am on Granny Duty, I don’t think 915 words is too bad. The little monkey didn’t go to bed until gone 9pm, then I still had dog* to walk (*singular as my other dog is still too petrified from fireworks to set a paw outside once it starts to get dark), tea to make for ‘the other half’ and laundry to put in the wash.

Hoping if I get up early enough tomorrow morning I’ll be able to get some writing done before the little one wakes up.

Important advice which I almost forgot to take; update your word-count daily (especially if your region is in a word-war against other regions)

Total word-count: 9442 words

DAY 6: Treading water.

I did have a proper blog planned, but it’s past my bedtime already so here’s another quickie.

I had a late start on writing tonight, but got today’s word-count sorted thanks to some more sprints in chat-room.

I’m a day’s words short from missing yesterday, but at least not falling any further behind.

My plan for now is to at least write 1667 daily target until I start feeling better (and after weekend as Granddaughter will be staying over)

total word-count: 8527

Day 4: In which I narrowly evade the Aliens’ Lair

Okay so I’m running late.

I’m finding that I’m too rushed in the mornings at the moment to get any words in.

I could cut out my 30 minutes workout, but I know from experience that would be a false economy. My body and brain do not function without exercise. I get lethargic and depressed, which is not conducive to hitting the daily 1667 words.

Despite a late start I have managed to drag myself to reach the daily word-count. Thanks to word-wars and plot suggestions from the great peeps in the chat-room.

Eat that evil alien horde sent by Baba Yaga (my Municipal Liaison) to (motivate) abduct me and take over my brain!

word-count for today: 1704
