NaNo Day 2: Homework. And, Yeah, Homework.

A breakdown of how I spent my time yesterday:

  • 5% Revising
  • 10% Homework
  • 10% Hanging out with friends. (To any lovely Oxford people reading this, especially Jenny: HI. I LOVE YOU. THANK YOU AGAIN FOR VISITING.)
  • 75% NaNoWriMo

… Which is how I ended up writing 6,034 words before Day 1 was done.

Because of that, though, I’m way behind on homework now, so I’m going to have to spend the rest of today trying to catch up writing the two papers due this week. (Luckily my goal for today was only to write a thousand words, so I did that as soon as I got up, and now I’m off to the Land of Homework.)

If you’d like to keep up with the Ch1Con team’s NaNoing as a whole, team member Emma is posting our word counts and favorite lines from each day on the conference Tumblr. Check that out here.

Goal for today: 1,000.

Overall goal: 6,000.

Current word count: 7,140.

How’s NaNoWriMo going so far? Did you have a good first day? Let me know in the comments!


Posting Every Day in November!

It’s October 28th, which means it’s almost that time of year again.

That’s right.


And after all the fun posting every day of November was last year, I’m doing it again! (Don’t you groan at me.)

Lots of other exciting things will also be happening during November this year, so stay tuned for those announcements too. (Some possibly coming next week?) (Not that you heard it from me.) (Shhhh, WHO TOLD YOU THAT.)

If you’re doing NaNoWriMo, I want to be your buddy so we can complain together cheer each other on! My profile:

Also, you should watch our November Ch1Con Chat discussing NaNo! Info here.

And yeah. Talk to you tomorrow for this week’s Wordy Wednesday, then November (and posting every day) begins Saturday!
