Writer Wednesday: NaNoWriMo Update

Happy seventh day of NaNoWriMo 2018!

Last Thursday was the official kick-off of this awesome annual event, and since that time I’ve gotten 8,002 words down on paper. Ahem, keyboard. 

Behind a little at this point, but the battle is not lost. Most of the words came last night during our monthly Writer’s Block. Writer’s Block truly is a good time to just sit and write. As long as you stay focused, you can get a lot accomplished. If you don’t currently have a time and place where you can sit and devote a couple of hours to simply writing, I encourage to clear the space on your calendar and keep the appointment!

I had to chuckle when I updated my NaNoWriMo word count and it told me that at the pace I was going, I would finish on January 12th, 2019! Yeah, no. I’ll get done before that. I think… 😉

Today’s goal is to get at least 2,000 more words down. If I can do that every day, I’ll stay ahead of the game. And hopefully, get this first book finished and start the second before the month is over!

Are you participating in NaNoWriMo 2018? How many words have you gotten down so far? If you’re having trouble finding time to write, what distractions can you eliminate to help you finish? Good luck!
