Hello. NaNoWriMo is over. The aim of that was to write 1,667 words a day so 50,000 in the month of November. I finished it with a mere excess of 45 words (it was 10.30pm) but had already decided to keep going on a slightly smaller, more realistic, scale of aiming to write 1,000 words a day, every day. There will be some days when it won’t happen but I will be keeping a record (nerdy Excel spreadsheet) of my progress and will be sharing it here.
Today I wrote the first 1,716 words of ‘Henry Goes to the Cinema’, the fourth in my Rachel Cavanagh / Henry Houdini dog detective short spin-offs (the first is available, the second and third should be this month) so a great start. As I said, I may not always make it but I certainly aim to at least have 7,000 words when I check in with you every Wednesday.
Do let me know how you’re getting on with your writing and if this inspires you to keep going then I’d be delighted to hear how you’re progressing.
