So that’s the first week of NaNoWriMo2013 done (National Novel Writing Month) and what a fantastic first week it’s been. At first I wasn’t sure whether or not to enter, but having toyed with the idea contemplated writing the sci-fi novel my novel was supposed to have been last year, only to end up returning to my book from last year’s effort. So far 10726 new words written taking the whole book to about 61,000 words. Having looked back at last years effort I have been surprised by it, there was more going on than I recalled, which is a good sign. What I’m finding concerning though is even with another 10,000 words past there are still vast swathes of the heart of the novel which I haven’t even touched on yet! Will I need a third year to get the first draft done? I do hope not… Still enough procrastination! Today is supposed to be my big push to catch up with the word count required to be on track for the magic 50,000 (missed the first couple of days having been away). Would be nice to try and get a little buffer in there too over the weekend, but I don’t see that happening for one moment. Verdict so far? Having a creative blast!
