NaNoWriMo 2017 Weekly Update: No. 1


Hey, guys! Well, we’re through the first week of NaNoWriMo. I hope everyone is right on track and having a good go of it so far. 🙂 I’ll try to do one of these writing updates each week throughout the challenge just to touch base on where I’m at and how writing went throughout that particular week.

Here’s my progress throughout week 1 when it came to my daily word count:

November 1: word count of 1,679

November 2: word count of 1,688

November 3: word count of 1,321

November 4: word count of 1,092

November 5: word count of  1,895

November 6: word count of 1,927

November 7: word count of 1,728

My goal for this week was to reach a minimum of 11,669 words. I accomplished:

11,330 words written in 7 days!


I came in just 339 words shy of where I’d planned on capping off the week, but hey, not too shabby of a start, right? 🙂 I can catch up. I know I can. As is the case for many people, November has been shaping up to be an incredibly busy (and financially-draining) month. Still, I remain optimistic! I nearly made the first week’s goal, so I just gotta catch up a wee bit and then I’m right on track. 😀

Are you participating in NaNoWriMo this year? How did your first week of the writing challenge go? Let’s talk NaNoWriMo!

  1. Impressive! I need to write more. I miss it. From the age of 15 to about 27 I kept a diary every year. It’s mad reading them. I’ve also written a billion songs, stories and poems. Why was Day number 6 your biggest day? Did you feel particularly inspired?

    1. Thanks! 🙂 I think I’d go nuts if I didn’t write. Even though writing can be a maddening process itself. 😛
      Wow, that is some major commitment with the diaries you had. I always wanted to keep one but for some reason I’d only ever write in them once or twice and then never pick them up again.
      Number 6 ended up being such a productive day because I had some extra free time compared to the other days. 🙂
      I think it would be awesome if you got back into writing. I always enjoy reading your companion pieces you write for your posts.

    1. Aw, thank you very much! 😀 This week’s been shaping up not to be as productive since I’ve been swamped with stuff to do this week and am currently sick on top of things. Ugh. I got sick at some point during the last NaNoWriMo, too. lol I’m gonna keep at it, though, so thank you for the encouragement! It means a lot. 😀

  2. Congratulations! It’s definitely a work-life balance for trying to do this challenge. I am happy that you were close to your goal and I know that you can make it! My week has been great so far, but today I hit a bit of a stump. Currently, I’m at 16,176 so I’m super happy about making it this far! I can’t wait to hear more of your progress and have a great weekend!

    1. Thank you! 😀 Absolutely. You’re so right about that balance of work/life when it comes to this. That is awesome to hear how well you’re doing! You are kicking this challenge’s butt! Well done. I’m so happy for you that it is going so well! 😀
      I’ve been having a rougher go of it this week, but I’m hoping to bounce back again. Just been super busy and sick. Bleh!
