NaNoWriMo Update: Week 2 & 3 | Ahead of Schedule

Hello everyone.
Another NaNoWriMo update, though this one is a 2-in-1. I was too busy to write a 2-week update on the 14th. You can check out my first update here – I talked about my WIP and there’s a mood board/aesthetic for the story, if you are interested in that!

Week 2 word counts:

Day 8 – 2000
Day 9 – 1701
Day 10 – 1712
Day 11 – 1705
Day 12 – 2200
Day 13 – 1709
Day 14 – 1667

Week 2 total: 24712

This week was quite hard for me as I came down with a flu-like virus. I felt really unwell and had terrible brain fog! Despite this, I managed to stay on track with my daily word count and had my best writing days so far.

Week 3 word counts:

Day 15 – 1714
Day 16 – 454
Day 17 – 1716
Day 18 – 1704
Day 19 – 1763
Day 20 – 2202
Day 21 – 1735

Week 3 total word count: 36000

My worst week, as you can see on the 16th I had my worst writing day of the month. I usually work from home but on the 16th I had to go into the office for the day and it took it out of me. It was such a long, busy day, I was too tired to write when I got in. I forced myself to write a few hundred words then gave up.

It’s definitely getting harder as the days go on. Fair play to anyone doing NaNoWriMo with full-time jobs/kids/commitments. It has taken over my life! I’m happy I’m doing it and will be finishing it but I will be relieved when it’s over.

That’s my update for now, I’m ahead of schedule (somehow) and very happy so far! I cannot believe it’s the 22nd today. 8 days left!

If you’re doing NaNoWriMo let me know how it’s going for you!
