NaNoWriMo (Day 5)


Words written: 1,051

Highs: Meeting up for a write-in

Lows: Feeling under prepared and failing to do a chapter plan

Surprises: I found I enjoy writing outside of my office

Total words to date: 7,854

Extract (unedited): “He could feel her excitement and nerves oozing up through the keyboard and into his fingers.”



I am super behind with my word count. Does it matter? Not in the slightest. What matters is I am finally writing some new words for my novel – the novel I started more than eight years ago.

I must also explain that my day five of NaNo is not the actual NaNo day five. We’re actually on day 11 in NaNo world. Whoops…
