Guess Who’s Making her Dreams a Reality?

Me that’s who! 

Hey, Nerdy Peeps! You remember the post where I told y’all about making my dreams become a reality. Well, I’m doing it! I’m writing, and soon I will be able to share my very first novel with all of you! What gave me the push? Well, let me tell you!

NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month)

November is the month for writing. So, for the very first time since I started writing, I am participating in NaNoWriMo! That’s right I am challenging myself along with other writers to knock out a novel in a month. I couldn’t be more excited to go on this journey.


NaNoWriMo Guidelines

They’re pretty easy. It starts on November 1 and ends on November 30th! You start with nothing and by the end of the 30 days, you need to write 50,000 words.

My Daily Word Counts

Day 1 – 1809 words!

Day 2 – I didn’t write this day

Day 3 – 865 words!

Day 4 and day 5 – I started out slow so I don’t have a new count for these days.

Day 6 -3822 words! I was starting to find my mojo!

Day 7 – 3747 words!

Day 8 – 2886 words! I stopped early to watch the CMA’s (I love country music, so I couldn’t miss it!)

Day 9 -336 words! Don’t worry I haven’t finished writing for today so this number is low.

That means I have written a total of 13,465 words! In all my life I have never written that many words for one thing. And, all this writing is getting me so excited to get my novel out there. It has become more than just a few words on a page and is turning out to be a pretty awesome story. Yes, I might be biased, but hey it’s my book hehe!

So how many words does that leave?

36,535 words! Of course, that number will change since I am nowhere near done writing today. I plan to give weekly updates for the month and towards the end of the challenge, I am going to start sharing sneak peaks of my book!

Oh, I almost forgot I have a new Facebook Page where you can find all kinds of updates and my journey as an author! So, check it out and give it a like! That way you never miss anything I am up to!

    This takes lots of commitment and great for doing it. I’d like to start writing poetry but haven’t much of a clue. Any tips? 😊
