In yesterday’s post, I mentioned that I missed out on half a week of writing due to an emergency early last week.

On Day 6, I only had 6,905 words and by the time Friday rolled around, I was way way way behind the desired #NaNoWriMo word count for Day 10.

I gave up on the 1,667 word per day and simply challenged myself over the weekend with word sprints (early Miracle morning, mid-day, late afternoon and evening – on my own and with #NaNoWriMo Twitter sprints and virtual write-ins.

By the way, I LOVE word sprints and virtual write-in sessions. They are tremendously helpful and always fuel new ideas.

The expected word count for today DAY #15 is supposed to be 25,005 words.

Guess what my word count is as of this post?

22,286 words

Not bad as a catch up but editing is going to be oh-so-painful…😐

  1. That’s amazing Marquesa. Great job! You are so close to your word count despite other stuff happening. There’s nothing wrong with being 3000 words down at all you could easily make that up as you finish the last half of the month. Keep on going!

  2. Same thing happened to me. I missed couple of days on the word count and at #16 days I am at ~22K words right now. I need to pick up pace, but before that I need some planning to do. I am thinking of doing some thinking during the day and get back to the writing part for about half an hour near midnight. Hopefully, I will catch up on the word count by this weekend. Fingers crossed!
