2016

WEEK 3 UPDATE
Ugh, what a week. Nano is not going strong for me, though, I’ll start you off with something good:
I reached my original 30k goal!
So that means I’ve now changed my goal to 40k. I’m so pleased because at one point I wondered if I’d make it. I’m not near the end of the story – even though I have notes on roughly what I want to happen, I still have no idea how I’m going to get there. Sigh.
Once again I’m writing this post because I forgot to  vlog and also forgot to make notes, so watch my impressive calculator skills go to work with my daily word counts:
Tuesday 15th: I finished my vlog on this day, and didn’t really know I’d be writing, but apparently aI got 557 words done. So yay!
Wednesday 16th: 1179 words. Wow. What a win!
Thursday 17th: 800 words.  I don’t remember writing this much…
Friday 18th: 442 words. Meh.
Saturday 19th: As far as I know, I didn’t write anything this day.
Sunday 20th: 1765. Yeah, Sunday was my best day this week. I wrote more than I thought I would, and I passed my 30k goal. WOOT!
Monday 21st: – No words written. I was out most of the day.
Tuesday 22nd: – Went to the cinema, and currently writing this post…so yeah, no words done.  Sigh.
So yeah, as you can see….not the greatest week, writing-wise. But I hope to catch up at least by 5k-10k. I don’t hope to ‘win’ Nanowrimo, but y’know, I made it this far.
One week to go – well, more like 9 days – and I am currently something like 20k behind? I don’t know. It’s a lot, basically. 
I will try and vlog my last week… maybe.
See ya later!

What are words? | Week 1 of #NaNoWriMo2016

Posted 7 November, 2016 by katheryn13 in Blog Talks, Fun, NaNoWriMo, Updates, writing challenges / 1 Comment

Guys, guys, guys…HALP?
I honestly don’t know why I chose to do this. I mean…50k in a month? Am I mad? YES. Yes, I am. So as I forgot to actually VLOG this week, I realise I’d have to do a written post about my progress so far. WHUUUUUT WHYYYY
CRIES
Okay, enough dramatics. 
I’ve been pretty behind on my word count, but not as much as in previous years. I’m  holding up well. Here’s a break down:
Tuesday 1st November: I kinda cheated this day because I forgot to reset the word count on scrivener. *gasps* Yeah, so  I put into nano site I did 1200 words, which wasn’t THAT far off, to be honest.
Wednesday 2nd November: Ugh, I hate maths. Nano site doesn’t tell me (past the actual day) how many words I did specifically, and I forgot to write notes. I used a calculator (woo go me!) and deduced I wrote 1164 words this day. *party time*
Thursday 3rd November: Apparently I wrote 1159 words? Um…okay, if you insist Mr Calculator.
Friday 4th November: Seriously, I’m thinking I’m doing the maths wrong. *growls* Apparently I only wrote 1058 words this day. WHAT?
Saturday 5th November (*Guy Fawkes day* WOOOOOT! fireworks everywhere!!!): *calculates* ah yes, that’s better. I wrote 2240 words. I am the master of words this day! Watch me type….ROAR! 
Sunday 6th November: sigh. 1269. I SWEAR I wrote more. I swear it. This adding and subtracting business is screwing with me. GRRRR!
Monday 7th November (THAT’S TODAY!!!): Haha, well that’s easy. 0words. I mean, I haven’t written any yet. I’ll guess..hmmm…I’ve written 5000 words today. 😛 What? You don’t believe I can do it? Pfft! 
Just you wait.
*starts rapping Hamilton lyrics* 
Oops, sorry.
See ya next week! xx Kat xx
p.s. if you’re doing NaNo, let me know your progress! I wanna know who I need to beat. Mwahahahaha
