NaNoWriMo – Day 15

I´m still in the hunt for that winners badge this year. I’ve suffered none of last year’s stutters and procrastination. I get up and write for an hour or so first thing and sometimes some later in the day when I can snatch the time. I have almost cured myself of the habit of constant revision but the lure still attracts me occasionally. Writing short stories, I´m always re-reading the text as I write but last year I did that with the novel and fell behind almost from day one but I’ve realised that the spirit of the event is to get the words on the page and not worry about them being the perfect words.

I´m fast approaching 35,000 words now and feeling confident at the moment, and although there are still some hills to climb I can just about see the summit from here.

      • Thanks Jill it’s been really hard as all things conspire to get in the way but I’m over 45,000 words now and a few days left.
        I was always determined to win after last year’s failure taught me what I needed to do this time.
        I probably won’t do next year but we’ll have to see.
        Hope you’re well

      • Great job, Steve! You’re almost there…congratulations! Taking a year off is a good idea. I’ve used this month to focus on editing my NaNo project from last year. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
