I know that I’ve not spent much time on WordPress lately and as you’ve probably guessed it’s due to the struggles of trying to write 50,000 words in a month for NaNoWriMo. If you check out my post from the start of the month (you can find it here) I talk about what I’m writing and even include an excerpt from the novel. I won’t punish you all by posting another excerpt, NaNo encourages quantity over quality after all!
I’m actually doing pretty well in terms of quantity, I’ve written about 39,000 words so far so I’m a little bit ahead of where I should be at this stage. Hopefully that will let me have a little break at the end of the month. I’ve discovered that I can’t write love scenes to save my life and in all my future novels all characters should be strictly asexual to avoid me ever having to write about a sex scene. They have awards every year for the most terrible depictions of sex in fiction and should my content ever be published I would win it hands down. So awkward.
Despite the awfulness of my rushed writing I actually quite like the idea I came up with at the last moment so maybe I’ll be able to make something of it once NaNoWriMo is over and I can start again with an actual plan. We’ll see!
Are you doing NaNo this year? How’s it going for you?
