Another day of writing left to begin after 4:00 pm. There were many times when I would use the excuse of being tired after a work as a reason for not writing. But no more. Not since NaNoWriMo began. Now, I have a whole new perspective on writing and on the writer that I wish to be. I haven’t felt as motivated as I have these past few days, and I am inspired by this renewal in passion. I wish the same renewal to all of you 🙂
Word count wise, though I started after 4:30pm this afternoon, I managed to pass my 2k a day goal and even surpassed the 25k mark! It’s a wonderful experience, that first time you realize that you’ve written more words than you need to write.
My word count for the day is set at: 2,151.
The first and last lines of the day:
It was a frustrating response, but Peggie accepted it nonetheless.
But the beauty didn’t last.
Terrie and Peggie had a bit of heart to heart during their stroll in the woods and Terrie spoke some harsh truths. Peggie made some discoveries that she hadn’t been expecting. Then they sat down under a moonless sky to tell stories and sing songs. Lots of love going around. So far, everything’s on track to a first real pinch. A first test in this second act. Here’s hoping Peggie and Terrie can find the courage to face it together!
I also have a new plan: to exceed 50k and finish this novel before November 30th. It’s a big undertaking, but it might just be possible. If I apply myself. I’ve conceived. I believe in. Gosh darn, I might just achieve it!
Anyone else, planning to write beyond the 50k if they hit the mark before November 30th? Or are you going to call it quits when the challenge is met?
Let me know how your NaNo journey is going!
May inspiration flow like ink upon your quill,
