NaNoWriMo (Day 8*)


Words written: 2,701

Highs: Writing in public is great fun and inspirational

Lows: Needing sleep

Surprises: Writing doesn’t always have to feel like wading in thick mud

Total words to date: 14,732

Extract (unedited): “It’s time to talk about rape.”


I’m not going to lie – I wanted to write more today. I wanted to break the 15k barrier. I wanted to do it tonight.
But sleep is calling me.
Over the last three nights I have had around ten hours sleep in total. It’s all thanks to NYC Midnight’s Flash Fiction Challenge 2015 and I wouldn’t have it any other way. But for now I need to go to bed.
I’m still positive about finishing NaNo with 50k. That could easily change by tomorrow!
*Please note, this is my day eight of NaNo, which is actually on day 23 now.
