NaNoWriMo – Update

Its been 5 days since the National Novel Writing Challenge began, and I only have about 2,000 words to my name. Things have been pretty hectic these past few days, so I haven’t had the time or energy to really sit down and right. Nor have I had any inspiration or thoughts to write about. That is the frustrating part. RIght now, I’m just jotting down any idea that comes to my mind, but I know that in December I’ll be deleting over half of everything I”ve written so far. But I suppose its best to have too much and cut back than to not have anything written down and try to fill in the gaps.

I wonder how other people are doing with their challenge?

Oh, here is something quirky I saw on the New shelf at the library the other day:

A Low-Stress, High-Velocity Guide to Writing a Novel in 30 Days

A full-fledged book written by Chris Baty, founder of NaNoWriMo. Its full of tips and tricks to get through the month long challenge. The key is to lower your expectations “from ‘best-seller’ to ‘would not make someone vomit,’ ” says Baty.

Hah. Not make someone vomit. That’s something to aim for, I guess. =) Good luck writers!

  1. I’ve written 200 words in the last two days (haven’t even updating the site word count), but I was going pretty good before that (9000 words). Now we’re busy with moving and other stuff, so I’ll have to squeeze it in when I can in the next week. And quit checking my RSS reader every couple hours. 🙂

  2. Hope nano-ing is going well for you. I’m way behind but then I asked myself, way behind what? On we go!!!
