Well, we’re one week deep into NaNoWriMo 2015, and this year I decided it would be a good idea to go for 50k. The word count goal for the first week is 13,336 words, and I’m currently on 14,736 words, so I’m slightly ahead.
I’m still in the lovingly dubbed ‘honeymoon phase’ of NaNoWriMo, and tomorrow that magical period ends. I am mentally preparing myself for the horrors of the middle weeks, and saying goodbye to everything else in my life
except maybe schoolwork. *glares at schoolwork*. I don’t think I’m going to announce my blurb, nor my title yet (not that I haven’t got those…….) HOWEVER, I would like to very briefly sing the praises of scrivener. I can’t really work it very well but it’s AMAZING SOFTWARE. AND IT HAS A 30 DAY TRIAL WHICH IS PERFECT FOR NANOWRIMO. And as far as I know, if you win NaNoWriMo you get a 50% discount, making it $20! I’m going to make a detailed post about scrivener once I’ve really figured out how to work it fully.
I’ve also kept a spreadsheet of all my word counts for every sprint I do, so here are my statistics for the beginning of the month:
My top word count for 5 minutes is 269 words, and my record (thus far) for 10 minutes is 476 words.
I know this post was soul crushingly short and soul crushingly uninteresting, but I hope to provide more detailed statistics and musings next week, and a post of NaNoWriMo tips in the middle of the week.
