We have started! At least, I have. 🙂
The beginning of the first week of NaNo 2018 went nicely. I had the notes ready for my manuscript so I could start right away. Not everything is immediately useful in the story, but that’s not really necessary. After all, we have just started and I already know that my manuscript will count more than 50,000 words anyway.
I see NaNo more as a nice kick-start than an attempt to complete a first-draft. That I worked hard also shows in the chart. (Oh, how I like that chart!)
Especially because I never have a lot of time to write in the weekend and I was sick for a couple of days so I wasn’t able to write as much as I wanted.
Because of illness I often have to take a step back and I don’t like that one bit. Most of the time I am able to fight through it but sometimes even the smallest effort is too much.
But I think that I have lived through the worst now, so I hope the rest of the month will be better. Although I try to write as much as possible, I have no reason to cheer yet. I also have a lot of appointments this month which will affect my writing hours. That’s why I tried to work “ahead” a bit, despite my sickness. Hopefully, this will be sufficient, otherwise I will have to work extra hard in the second half of the month!
I prefer to write at home, in the living room where my pc is located. Well, I can actually write anywhere, but a good seat is still very important when you sit behind the computer for a long time. Do you have a favorite writing spot?
Moreover, it is nice and quiet during the day and I can listen to my own music. My favorite writing music is Imagine Dragons right now.
Despite everything, it’s a reasonable good start of NaNo for me. How are things going with you?
Lots of love, Patty
