NaNoWriMo Checkin #3

Word count: 43,014

Hi all, and happy Friday!

Last week: 38,459

Overall progress: +4,555

It’s been a bit of a busy week for me, so unfortunately I’ve not had much time for writing: in fact, the place where I’ve been most productive with it has been on the bus to and from work!

It’s not where I thought I’d be, but I’m happy with where I’m at right now. My plot fits together more logically, and for the first time since I started it, I’m not going over and over the plot trying to add and delete things to improve it, because to me, my plot is the best it can be. Until, of course, I read back over it in a few months and spot a glaringly obvious plothole… Fingers crossed, that won’t happen though!

I’m trying to forecast where I’ll be at by the end of NaNoWriMo, and if I’m being honest, I’m not sure I’ll reach the 50k mark. These past three weeks have been spent primarily on fixing the things in my story that didn’t quite line up, and now I’ve gotten back to writing again, I’ve probably given myself too little time to finish it off.

Tomorrow, I’m travelling to Copenhagen for four days to do some sightseeing! I’m looking forward to it so much, even though it means I won’t get any writing done. So essentially, from now until the end of the month, I have 2 days in which to write 7,000 words!

I’m not confident I’ll get there, but wish me luck!

How is your writing going this NaNoWriMo?
