so, how have i done so far?

General update

Hellooo from the land of NaNoWriMo 2017!

I thought I’d share an update from the trenches, since I really haven’t been around much lately. NaNoWriMo has been basically as predicted: time-consuming, crazy, challenging, and many other not quite positive things. As you’ll see below if you keep reading, I actually started off fairly strong but let things slip more recently, due to various Real Life reasons.

Mainly, the exhaustion of starting a new job and finishing some crochet projects for my cousin’s baby shower were my obstacles during these first ten days. But I’m still determined to plug on! I’ve definitely made good progress so far; I’ve already written more than I did last year. So that’s a success! Hopefully I will have more of those as the month goes on.

i’m getting ready to write my face off | nanowrimo 2017

Hello, all, and welcome to my super obnoxious post about NaNoWriMo 2017! Woooo!

Okay, but really this post is going to be quite long. I want to vent and squeal and gush about NaNoWriMo, but I also don’t want to post a thousand posts about it and be a total nuisance, either.

(But let me know if you’d be interested in that. Like…would you all hate me / unfollow me if I did weekly reports during November???)

So here’s my big round up post for NaNoWriMo 2017. I’ll share the basics, post pretty aesthetic pictures, and of course, do some tags.

my novel

As I mentioned in my quarterly goals post last week, I am planning to continue (and hopefully finish!) my current WIP for NaNoWriMo this year. Here’s the lowdown on this project:

  • Title: Do Not Go Gentle
  • Current word count: 49, 374 words
  • Started: March 2016
  • Chapters written: 11 out of 16 (ish??? they’re long)
  • What it’s about: dragons, love, friends, overcoming evil…y’know, the usual

Hopefully that gives you a lil picture of what I have going on! As you can tell, I’m not sure if I’ll even need 50,000 more words to finish this WIP, since I only have about 5 more chapters planned. However, A LOT need to happen in those chapters. Plus, if I finish those, chapters 7-11 need heavy revision, so I think I’ll keep plenty busy during November, even if I don’t reach 50k.

Right then. Read on for some taggy tags and questions!
