NaNoWriMo Day 1

It’s officially begun! National Novel Writing Month is on it’s way and I’m for one, EXCITED!

I wrote my first scene, a little over 2800 words and I’m very excited, enthusiastic, and motivated to keep going. I can’t wait to see how this turns out and seeing the end result by December 1st. I know I’ll still have more to write when the challenge is over, but I’m still eager to see the progress and keep writing.

I hope everyone is having a good first day, and don’t give up! It might seem like a huge haul to get to that 50,000 words but you can do it.

The ultimate goal of NaNoWriMo is to simply write. Try not to over think what you’re writing too much, and do your best. Once you have the 50,000 words, you can always go back and fix what you’ve done, or change things. The idea is to sit and write and get part of a rough draft (or an entire rough draft) done.

Keep going, get your good old snacks to keep you writing and working, and caffeine (if you’re like me and need it as fuel through out your day), and throw on those comfy clothes. In my opinion, comfort is key when writing.

And in the end: YOU CAN DO IT!


About rachelsparling

I'm a writer working on a manuscript for a novel. I love to write and I've been doing it for 17 years. Through several story ideas I have figured out what works and what doesn't, and I've learned a lot about myself and my writing style. I love to read and escape to many different worlds. I've also learned a lot about good writing and bad writing through both reading a lot and acquiring an education in English literature, and becoming an ESL teacher. I enjoy filming and photographing all sorts of things and putting together short documentaries and videos. I love my camera.
