NaNoWriMo 2017 Weekly Update: No. 2


Woo! Half way through the frantic chaos that is NaNoWriMo! It’s hard to believe it’s half over already. How’s it going for those of you who are participating this year? Are you right on track where you were hoping to be at this point? Any tips on what’s working for you so far this go around?

Not getting sick helps, of course. This is my second year doing NaNoWriMo and it also just so happens to be my second time getting sick during it. Lovely. Yay, tradition, am I right? πŸ˜› Oh well, it and some other things slowed me down this week, but I’m not out of this fight yet! I’m behind where I wanted to be, but I’m not giving up. It’s called a writing “challenge” for a reason, after all.

Alright, that said, let’s get down to business, shall we? Last week my writing update had a day by day word count breakdown, but I failed to track how much was written each day this week, so we’ll just go over the end game number I wound up with this week. I’d been hoping to write an additional 11,669 words this week, PLUS I wanted to make up for the 339 words I was shy of from last week’s goal. Well, it did not happen this week, guys.


I finished the week with an additional 9,168 words written. With the month being half over at this point, I was hoping to have reached a minimum of 25,000 words by now. After adding this week’s numbers up with last week’s I see I am at exactly *drum roll please* . . .Β  20,498 words!

That’s a whopping 4,502 words less than I’d hoped.


Oh, well, I feel like if I get my butt back on track and split up the extra words I still need between the two weeks I have left that I can do it. Wishful thinking? Maybe, but it’s better than giving up! πŸ˜›

Good luck to those of you still in the good fight, too. ❀ NaNoWriMo is one tough beast, but we’ve got this, guys! πŸ˜€

Oh! And on a non-NaNoWriMo-related side note, you should go check out this snazzy giveaway Kate over at All the Trinkets is doing for her blog’s 3rd birthday! She’s a great artist and blogger and has a few different giveaway options you can pick from going on right now. πŸ™‚ She’s got an awesome and inspiring blog so be sure to give her some blog b-day love. She deserves it! She also deserves an adorable gif of a hedgehog in a little party hat eating a tiny cake, so here ya go, Kate! πŸ˜›

    1. Aw, thank you! ❀ Unfortunately I'm still sick, but hopefully nearing the end of it. I'd just be happy if my voice returned to normal some time soon. lol I hope you're doing well and avoiding all the germs floating around during cold season. πŸ™‚


  1. Wellll I kinda gave up on NaNo due to various factors, but I’m not giving up on the story! I’m going to continue working on it when I finish my current writing project, an FF essay for a collaborative with other blogger peeps 😊

    I hope you’ll share your NaNo project with the world if that’s not a NoNoπŸ˜†
