NaNoWriMo Day 22

The Words: 109 words written today. Today was another full one, with checking out of the hotel, a nice lunch, and then waiting in line for a concert. We stood out in the cold for 2 hours. My toes were in a lot of pain by the time the doors opened. I originally thought I could write by hand in a small notebook to pass the time while waiting in line. Turns out I couldn’t do much but bounce on my feet trying to stay warm. When we first arrived at the place where the concert was, though, we decided to wait in the car until the line started forming. That was when I wrote 109 words.

My goal since finishing my first novel has been 3333 words per day, to try to reach 100k this month. These last two low days have fortunately not derailed me, because I had such a lead on that goal, I’m actually right around par now. So tomorrow I should be able to start writing more normally again.

The Story: There was some narrative about how Jonathan’s apprentice is more like an assistant, not an officially recognized apprentice. Jonathan himself isn’t really ready to have an apprentice yet, but when he let a member of his War Games team who was also a blacksmith help him in the shop, the team gave him the title “apprentice,” so that’s what he’s called. Or something. I was just trying to find something to write about, so I may have rambled a bit.

Total word count: 74,809

  1. I’m glad you were able to write a bit and that you’re still motivated to hit your 100k. Hopefully the weekend has helped rejuvenate your writing juices and will lead to many productive days before the end of NaNoWriMo 🙂 Don’t worry about the narrative. I have lots of written moments like that where I was just trying to see where the words would take me. Sometimes, it payed off and sometimes… well, that’s what editing is for 😉

    • I have a lot of areas where I wrote stuff that was a rabbit trail I ended up not liking. And some like this one that were explanation for something just shoved in wherever I thought to write it, and if it stays, will have to be put in a better spot later. I definitely learned a few NaNos ago that I can get more done if I don’t worry about it for now.
