Week one of NaNoWriMo has come and gone. Yikes. How did that happen? It’s gotten to a slow start for me, but you know what? That’s okay.
Day One: 1,190
Day one was a very good day, cranking out 1,190 words in It Started When You Saw Me. I also wrote in Ashes Like Frost and churned out 1,622 words there. I was insanely happy with my progress. Staying off the trap called Pinterest is easier when you have a print out of your story’s aesthetic. Thanks to the lovely Katie Grace for telling me about that. Day one was also chilly, so I snuggled by my laptop with a cup of coffee and had the time of my life.
Day Two: 654
Day two started out good, but didn’t end as well. I had a few people to email, work, and supper to cook. Plus I may or may not have procrastinated and watched a Hallmark Christmas movie.
Day Three: 722
“we have a mystery on our hands gang.”
The iconic words of Fred from Scooby-doo became real for my family Friday. In the night, my dad and mom were awakened by a thump on their outside wall, and a shampoo bottle falling in their shower.
You see where this is going.
When it was light, we went outside and saw that our tin roof was cut, and our siding looked like it had been impaled. Our guess right now is that someone was on our land flying a drone. At one in the morning. Yeah. Not a pleasant thought. So I did spend a hour in the fresh air throwing around suggestions with my family, but you know what? It was worth it.
A few statistics for the first week:
Total amount of hours spent writing: Eight
Some of that eight hours includes research. Because home-schooled me has no idea how public school works. Even if I work at one part-time.
Total word count: 2,776
