Week 2 Slump

11 Nov

For those of you who participate in NaNoWriMo, you may know that week two of the month is usually known for it’s “slump,” as in, most writers are getting off of the excited, week one high. In week two you generally hear writers lament over how tough it was to drudge up some decent-sounded words for their project. I was no exception.

In week one, the words flew from my fingertips and onto the document. My characters were fun to write and figure out, there was some semblance of plot, and the world wasn’t too bad if one considers how much it needs to be fleshed out. This week, however, it was a touch difficult to even get the daily word count in. For most of the time, my characters floundered in some random village in their world that didn’t do much except prove that I really need to work on my fight scenes.

Yet, today was a wonderful day of writing that let me get a couple of days ahead in my daily word count. See:


At the moment, my total word count is 20,435. Considering I’m aiming to reach 50k before Thanksgiving weekend, this is fantastic for me.

I hope everyone else is doing well with their projects, and that everyone has remembered to honor and thank those that served for us/their country on this lovely Veterans Day!
