So we are seven days into NaNoWriMo, and I admit I’m already behind. I have over 8,000 words and I believe we’re suppose to be at 11,000 or so. So yes, I’m a bit behind. Usually once I get behind I’m done for, but I wrote about 1,000 words today so I do believe that I can catch up.
It’s very stressful trying to keep up with the word count, and parts of my story right now are pretty bad. But one thing that I remember is to NEVER DELETE! No matter how bad it is, no matter if it’s the most pointless sentence or words ever written, I won’t delete it. I will keep every bit of it. I can always go bad and correct these things AFTER NaNo.
One thing that I’ve been having a LOT of fun with during this story, is writing out my characters backgrounds and information. I have a few pages dedicated to that just so I can go back and look at the characters. It’s been a ton of fun doing that.
That’s just a quick update on my NaNo so far. Nothing interesting, but I will probably do another update in a few days or so. How’s NaNoWriMo going for you? Are you enjoying writing your story?
