Good morning, friends.
Thought I'd pop in and give you a Week 1 progress.
Last year, I couldn't have done this. I just couldn't get into Nano or into the story I needed to be writing.
This year is different. I finally have the desire to actually write this story.
NOTE: As I type this, it's Day 6 and I've not written yet today or on Day 7 But I wanted to get this up.
I talked about Double Down Day and the amazing word count I had for that day. 3445. Seriously?!
The important thing is that I've written EVERY SINGLE DAY. Word count has been better some days better than others. I'm going to show you what I've done and I'll try my best to come in to update the daily word counts here.
DAY 1 - 1842
DAY 2- 915
DAY 3- 150
DAY 4- 3448
DAY 5- 322
DAY 7 -
Week 1 Total:
Aside from setting up the Preptober Planner, I also got another tip from Sarra. Like her, I like to get out of the house one day a week for a ME day. I go to my favorite coffee shop and work on my planners... or in the case of NANOWRIMO, I work on my story.
She uses one of those 4x6 pocket brag books to tuck her index cards in to... making her story board more portable than on the key ring she also uses.
So I pulled out my story board and slid my index Chapter/ Scene cards into a brag book I had here at home. Keep in mind, you can pick them up for $1.25 at $Tree or sometimes $.99 at WM.
I can use the story board here at home or if I'm going on a retreat weekend and want the larger showcase of the chapters but for short trips, this brag book style is a game changer for keeping my index cards/ chapter prompts at my finger tips.
Are you participating in Nano? How are you doing? Need some encouragement? Just buddy up with me - RainLyte on the Nano forum.
All my best!
