Day 4 of Camp NaNoWriMo 2013 – Hands In The Air!

Currently Listening To: Jade Catacombs, a remix by bLiNd of OCRemix.

Word Count: 8862

Just like how I pushed myself to finish my workout today, I pushed myself to keep going with writing my NaNo novel. I was pleased when I saw how much I wrote.

Today I am suppose to be at 6666 words (evil sounding, eh?) if I want to be on par for finishing. But in fact, I’m ahead! Well, you all knew that. This is good because I know tomorrow I will be out and about. I gotta be social every now and then.

I’m happy with how this is going so far. This time around, I did a lot of world building, but very little in the plot. Specifically, no outline. I do remember once writing out a very informal summary, but I barely remember it.

As a result of winging the plot, I don’t have specific endpoints where to stop. I just keep on writing until I feel satisfied with the chapter or scene.

Don’t expect an update from me tomorrow! Saturday I hope to break 10,000 words and beyond.

NaNoWriMo Day 1: I wrote over a thousand words??

Currently Listening To: Gilgamesh (Final Fantasy V) – Master of the Blades. A remix by pu_freak, OCRemix.

Word Count: 1,207

Considering I had to work late, I am surprised I even managed to write over a thousand words!

My stratagy with NaNoWriMo is to always get a good head-start. It just makes the rest of the challenge so much easier. This time around, I just don’t have the time or energy to go to five thousand on the first day.

Tomorrow isn’t going to be much better and Saturday I’ll be out. So watch for a spike on…Sunday?

Happy Writing!
