Getting Into the Nano Groove

“Figure out what scenes make your story your story, and go from there. Use them as mile markers and find your way between them.”

Victoria Schwab

2 weeks down, week 3 come at me! Only a week and a half to go of smashing out this novel! It’s quite tricky getting all the words down and being able to be somewhat coherent.

I’m trying to just keep writing and writing, but it definitely is a stressful time! I am trying to enjoy the experience, but, just like every November, I am feeling the pressure of getting 50,000 words done in one month.

I do find some comfort in the fact that the novel is going to be very rough, and very unedited. It’s easier to write when you’re not overthinking things or going back to fix mistakes all the time.

I’ve just had to remain as calm as possible and write as much as I can. It’s stressful, but it is also really fun.

I hit 29,000 words last night and I am incredibly close to 30,000. I have another 20,000 words to hit within the next 13 days and I’m pretty confident that I’m going to hit that goal!

It’s been fun fleshing out new characters and creating a new world, especially considering how consumed I’ve been with Infection Point and my Uni studies.

I’m confident that I’ll hit 50,000 by November 30 and I am looking forward to going through this new novel soon and editing it. I will definitely update you guys on my new project once it has a bit more meat added!

Infection Point will still be my priority after November, and I’m eager to finish editing it and getting it ready for publishing! Once it is fine-tuned, I will definitely update you all on what this new novel is all about!

For now, I will just keep pressing on a write as much as I can during this month! It’s time to smash out 50,000 words for this novel!

  1. Yeah, it’s definitely hard trying to move on while everything is imperfect, but I think coming up with a bad first draft is way better than having a ‘better’, half-finished one. Good luck with your WIP!

    1. You want it to be so good but it’s definitely better to have a completed WIP to go back and edit!
      Thank you! Hopefully can get it done🤞🏻
