NaNoWriMo 2019: Week 1

Hit Word Goals This Week:

  1. 1100
  2. 3000
  3. 8
  4. 500
  5. 500
  6. 606
  7. 3451

Above, you can see my word counts per day so far. The seventh being the count from today as I stopped. I can see looking at them my start was strong, but by the third day I was lucky to get anything done. Day three fell on my ‘mental health day’ (Read: I Took A Mental Health Day), but I’m still happy that I got even those eight words out. I got five hundred out two days and a row; I set myself a goal to hit in the least five hundred and hit the goal. Reflecting at my numbers I wanted to push myself today. I wanted to well than I had before.

So far, I’m doing well I think. I have seen that others are smashing their word counts. My going into this was a training/test of myself. I used to kill word counts with the best of them, but over time my everyday writing tapered off. I hope to finish my story with in the month, but if not I want to at least get back into a good habit of writing every day.

I believe a writer should write every day; I know they should. Blogging has helped me do this, but I want to get back to the powerhouse writer I once was.


I shared my spotify playlist I used today. I have a playlist that has always helped me focus while working.

  1. Great writing! I think you’re crushing it. I’ve been struggling to write like I used to the last few months. I did grimlist in October, and while I didn’t write a story everyday, it really helped me prepare for NaNoWriMo. Good luck in the week two.
