Just to keep you up to date of my #nanowrimo progress. I am on day 9 and so far I have written 20,424 words out of the 50,000 target. A lot of those words I am not happy with, and in the normal run of things I would edit as I go. Writing for me normally has me finishing one piece, while going back and changing what I don’t like as I go, or as I think of better things.
With nanowrimo, the challenge to have a first draft in a month means that there is no time for self editing as you go, and you literally throw the words down and move on. The words are coming out at a fast rate, but as a mum of three with house and food to get ready, the time to do it is my biggest constraint. I type as fast as I can, whenever I can get a minute. I am averaging approximately an hour a day at most and I am happy with my word count for my time spent.
As to the quality of my writing, well that is a whole different story. I am still enjoying the challenge so far and I am still on target to finish.
Wish me luck.
