NaNoWriMo Days 8, 9, 10, 11, & 12

These past five days have not been easy. When I got to chapter four I went ahead and started on some of the events that were going to take place in chapter five. This got my out line off a bit. Just when I thought I would recover from that... I got behind in my word count when I missed almost all of day 10. Not. Good. So, yesterday, I managed to write about 3,000 words -- not to terrible to write but not exactly fun. But I am still over 1,000 words short today plus my word count for today. Ugh.

My grandma also wants to write a book. So, I am going to her house this afternoon and we are going to have a little write in together. I hope I can catch up a bit. I need to take some time and actually plan out a couple of chapters that are very empty right now and I have no plans for them. I outlined and wrote little one page synopsis for each of my chapters except two which are totally blank (other than the title). That won't be fun when I actually get to those chapters.

So, I'm behind in my word count and on out-lining. But this would be oh-so boring if I didn't get a little behind, right?!?


  1. Cool that you're writing with your grandma!

    I'm thinking I might try to do a bit of a NaNo style writing myself later this summer.

  2. Thanks! This is our first time to write together -- I think it will be fun.

    NaNo style definitely helps me write. The only novels I have completed have been NaNo ones :P I need to work on disciplining myself to be more consistent and write every day.

  3. Mary Kate -- we are so proud of you and can't wait to read this one!!! You go girl!
