Nanowrimo 2015 Day 2 and Day 3

Welp I definitely lost motivation faster than I thought I would but I am determined to keep pushing through.

On day 2, my work count was still below par at 1628. (Not even hitting day one’s goal. ūüė≠) I only wrote 771 words more from day 1. However it was nice to finish chapter 7 of my story. ¬†When it is finally editted and posted I think the readers of my story will like it.

On day 3, I really started to hit the wall. I only got 87 words written and probably just spent the rest for night banging my head against my keyboard and finally just deciding to work on it more on day 4. This was all I had at the time:

poop jokes

Needless to say lots of bad poop jokes inspired by Levi and my premature writing block.

I did tweet to the #nanocoach tag that Nanowrimo has for advice and mini pep talks from other participants and the designated nanocoach for this leg of the process. They adviced me to “take a break and come back to it with fresh eyes.” And to also try doing writing sprints. ¬†I haven’t attempted it yet but when I have more time to write I might do it.

I also messaged my nano writing bubby.  I met her last nanowrimo and its nice talking to her and trying to motivate each other throughout the month.

Moral of the story is, if you get stuck utilize your resources. Just buckle down, get some calming music to help you focus and just type even if it has nothing to do with the current plot. Get. The. Words. Out.

Until next time.

Nanowrimo 2015 Day 1

It’s November and that means it’s time for me to attempt to write 1667 words a day for the next month, while balancing my hectic school and rehearsal schedule.¬† (It’s madness I tell you and I’m stupidly ambitious to try)

This year, I decided to work on a long running fanfiction of mine.¬† It’s an attack on titan/snk fanfic I started writing two years ago. I¬†decided to use nanowrimo to really work on and finish my Rivamika fanfiction. This story has been shelved and hiatus-ed off and on for the last two years. This year I want to finish it and be really proud of my work. ¬†I will be blogging about this process and the plot here and posting the latest chapters on fanficttion.net.¬†As far as Day 1 went my word count wasn’t as great as it could have been.

Its a little under the half of what the daily should be. (1667 everyday) Hopefully I can catch up and fill day 2’s quota as well.

With the 1700 word a day requirement, chapter may be drafted fairly quickly but will not be edited for posting until the weekends. Meaning the story maybe be drafted far ahead of the published chapters. I don’t know if with nanowrimo I will finish the story but I hope to write a good 80% during this month. The chapters will be posted on a regular basis as they are proofread and editted. I guess thats all.
