NaNoWriMo Update: Week Two

Two weeks down for NaNoWriMo and I’m miraculously still on track! I just wanted to post a quick update on how NaNoWriMo is going.

Here are my stats so far: 

Total word count:

I have written 27, 840 words for my WIP (Work In Progress) for this month so far.

Overall Progress:

I’ve managed to stay above the suggested minimum number of words needed to write to get to 50k!

My day-by-day spreadsheet breakdown:

This has been so helpful for staying on track!

For next week

I had a brainwave a month or so ago to use up some extra holiday days and book the next two weeks off of work. It’s been stressful having a full-time job and trying to make my daily word count, but I’m hoping that I’ll find it easier to write without the additional pressure or feeling rushed. I also want to work on some content for the blog. I have some posts drafted, but I haven’t had time to edit them and get them ready to be posted. 

As I’m in England and we’re currently in lockdown, I’m a bit limited with what I can do. My plans, other than to write, are mostly to learn how to cross-stitch, catch-up on reading books, and play some Hades. 

I’m honestly very excited!

  1. Congratulations on making so much progress on your project. I always mean to take part but I know I am terrible with keeping up with this sort of thing. Reading about your progress makes me want to give it a try though!
    Hope you enjoy your time off.

    1. Awh, thank-you so much! I really appreciate it! It is really intimidating, to be fair. This is the first year I think I’m going to make it.

      The NaNoWriMo website also lets you set smaller goals, so setting a 5k or 10k one for the month might be easier to keep up with. Starting with smaller ones has helped me gain confidence/routine before taking on the bigger one 🙂

      Good luck if you do give it a try! I’m rooting for you!
