Novel Writing  – Progress Report I

It is novel writing month! Did you register with NanoWriMo for the writing challenge? How are you faring?

I did register for the writing challenge and I am pushing to ensure I cross the finish line of 50,000 words. I don’t think I am doing badly currently. I have written 15,000 words. If I continue at this pace, I certainly should win!

I am pushing to write as much as I can the first two weeks because the last two weeks will be quite busy for me. School work will take another dimension then.

I try to put in about three hours each night except for the first night. I wrote about 600 words the first night but I gathered momentum subsequently. Sincerely, there are some nights I am tired and all I want to do is sleep. However, when I remember I have announced to some friends I am writing a novel, I want to push on. Also when I read on NanoWriMo site that my word statistics is added to the total for my home region, I want to keep writing.

When it is writing time, I switch off my phone and sign out of my mails! I try to cut down on distractions so that I can achieve more.

Now I have to go back to writing. I will brief you on my progress again next week.

Wish me luck!
