NaNoWriMovember Day 18 (or I don’t have enough time to blog this really!)

The Mo is looking good, shame it is so darn itchy

It is no lie that I knew this month was going to be hard with family commitments and work on top of two challenges. When I started NaNoWriMo the first week seemed to be so easy, just a hour or two a day and I was on par. But the longer it goes on the harder it gets, I have had two days where I have been so busy that I have written approximately 20 words. Other days when I think I will catch up something comes up and I just get above the 1,700 odd words designated for each day. In fact it is a miracle that I am currently only two days behind. The writing, as well, is not my best, it is a case of getting the words down then worrying about them later. I am happy to say I have managed to develop the storyline and the characters are moving along well, I’m just not sure I have written it in the best way. But hey, let’s be positive. I never thought I would hammer out over twenty-five thousand words in a couple of weeks and I have achieved that (well in just over two weeks). I really want to get this project complete, I am excited to finish and get editing them pop it up on Smashwords and Kindle.

The other challenge this month is going a lot more positively. I have managed to raise over £100 so far and am sporting a stonkingly good, if not disturbing, moustache. It is starting to itch now and I really want to shave it off but I am sure I can survive another twelve days.

The final thing to say is that I had expected to update this blog with my NaNoWriMovember exploits more often but it seems the words I really need to get down are on the story I am writing. So there we go, if you want to follow my progress writing the novel head here, and to sponsor me for Movember head over here. Right, I better run, this is a few hundred words that I should have written in the novel, well not these exact words, oh you know what I mean!
