NaNoWriMo week 2 is over and we are now halfway into the month! My motivation to write dropped significantly, but seeing as I set myself a goal every day to write, I tried to actually complete it.
You guys are going to be very disappointed in me, so I’m just going to warn you right now.
My goal every day is 1,000 words. I don’t worry so much about reaching 50,000 words because it doesn’t really seem like something that I can achieve. 1,000 words per day is quite doable and it only takes me around one or two hours to get to that point.
Total for Week 1: 7,991 words
Total for Week 2: 4,499 words
NaNo Total: 12,520 words
Book Total: 15,403 words
I’ve really been doubting my WIP this week! It is getting a little bit tricky to write. My main problem with it is the plot. I don’t know if it flows well and whether it is interesting.
Sometimes when I am writing I feel as though I am wasting my time, and it is difficult to shake that feeling. I don’t know if my story reads well, and for that it feels like it is fruitless to continue. I really enjoy writing, but that only happens when I am writing something that I truly love and think is a good idea.
I’m still going to try and write every day! Hopefully next next week I will write more words in a day. I try not to compare myself with other people doing NaNo, but it’s hard to when they are so far ahead of me.
