Week 1 of #NaNoWriMo is over – how did you do?

Week 1 of NaNoWriMo is behind us. I hear you breathing a sigh of relief. I am, too, well sort of.

How did you do? If your plan is to write 50,000 words this month, you should be sitting at a word count of about 11,667 (based on 1,667 words per day). But we all know that we have days where there aren’t enough hours in the day to accomplish that goal.

Week 1

I ‘fess up. I’ve not been writing 1,667 words a day. Most days, I only manage 500 or thereabouts. But as I’ve said in a previous blog post I’m only striving to write every day.

I’m pleased to say that I have written every day, which was my goal and at the end of week 1, I’ve written 5,906 words.

I hear you scoff at such a paltry number. To me it’s huge! After all, I’ve written every day this month. And so far I’ve stuck with the piece I’m pantsing. Things have been coming together for me on this piece really well so I’m happy to stick with it.

Today was another great day for me, but it falls into Week 2 so I’ll save my progress for another post.

How did you do the first week of #NaNoWriMo?

  1. Congratulations, Melanie! I’d say anything you’ve written is an accomplishment. Keep up the good work.
    I’m not doing NaNo.

  2. Thanks Beverly! Now to see if I can maintain the enthusiasm from the first week throughout the rest of the month. 🙂
