Nanowrimo - ohmywordo

Quick update - I am struggling with this a LOT! Day 22 and I have 22,000 words under my belt. Just to recap, the target is 50,000 by the end of November. I need to write around 2,700 every day to finish on time. I managed 5,000 yesterday which shows you just how far behind I had become! Or just how much can be done in one day! Depends if you are a half full or half empty kind of person.

I was *this* close to quitting twice last week but have decided to plough on! Wish me luck. I will definitely do this again next year but will plan a little and decide before the 2nd Nov that I'm going to join!!
To any other crazies out there tapping a way - best of british :-)

PS 22k in 22 days then 28k in 8 days - of course it's doable :-/

PPS I will post back in December when I have time to breathe again and let you know if I made it or not. Place your bets......


  1. I'm struggling too. It's not just lack of time - I'm just not thrilled with my story and know if I was writing something else I'd probably do better - so I'm going to write something else for the rest of the month.

  2. Well done, Mel! Keep going - I chickened out this year.

  3. Patsy I totally relate - still unsure how this one will fall!

    Sally, have you done before? This is my first attempt - haven't given up yet but it's definitely a sprint now!

    Thanks guys
