NaNoWriMo 2016 – Day 3 – 13579

The second “scene” of the first story line is almost complete. Today, I felt like I glossed over a number of pieces, so there is the potential for expansion of the ideas if I need to get through them. Today though, I could feel the tiredness through much of the writing, which is why I didn’t push myself on to 5k again.

I did push myself above 3,333 for the day though, so I did not lose any of the vital lead I had over the pace. Three days done and I should be at 10k – so I’m 3.5k ahead of pace.

How did I get through today though?

Orchards are arranged in neat rows. My story is now separated in the same way.

(This picture was from years ago and I used it in another blog post. Strangely enough, the caption works well for On / Off)

I started off with a 6am call again today. The kids got off to school, I had breakfast and between 7:40am and 8am, I had a few moments. I threw in 500+ words and then turned it off, did my work.

Then, when work was done and before dinner, I threw in another 800 words or so. After dinner, while the kids were reading, another 1k.

So by the time I found myself at the end of the night, I really only needed another 1k to call it a day.

Long writing sessions were not uncommon in my earlier years of NaNo. I think these shorter sessions are what I need though. Being able to throw 500 words at a project on ANY day is what I need to do long term. Yes, I can put more in on other days, but at a minimum, there is no reason not to do 500 words.

So I’ve said that before I’m sure. We’ll see how well it goes after NaNo, but the smile on my face from working on my writing is unmistakable. I enjoy writing, so I should do it more.
