The end of Week 3 – NaNoWriMo

It’s the final countdown! 

We’re about to enter the final week of November and more importantly – NaNoWriMo. This week we should* be entering the realm of the 40k. 

*I say should because that only applies if you’ve chosen/managed to stick to the 1667 words a day rule of thumb. Not everyone does, some people can write 5k in a day and finish early, while others choose a smaller overall target such as 25k. Whatever your goal is, whether you achieve it or not, you’ve done amazing just by getting words down on paper/page. 

So last time I gave you a word count rundown, I left it at Day 11. 

Let’s pick it up again at day 12:

As you can see I’ve had periods of staying on track, being ahead and lagging behind, but i’m still just tapping away at it. Definitely aiming to hit 50k, but it’s gonna be a fight to the finish for sure. if I can catch up to 40k today then I think I’ll have a better chance of staying on track for the rest of the week. 

How are you getting on?
