Daily record of my 2018 NaNoWriMo journey…
NaNo 2018 – Day 3
- To hit daily minimum word target of 1667
“Best laid plans and all that…”
My cold has struck with full force. I barely slept last night so I set my sight on the barest of goals…to meet the daily minimum word target of 1667 words.
I decided to work on Novel #3 – I have three novels in progress that are set in the same world as Oathbreaker. This involved typing up and expanding some scenes that I’ve been writing on my smartphone for the past few weeks.
This also overlapped one of my NaNo organisational goals: I have over 500 “notes” stored on my phone – complete and incomplete poetry and flash fiction, and chapters and scenes from longer projects, as well as ideas, planning notes and venues for submissions. It’s time these notes are stored somewhere more permanent, where I can’t easily delete them or lose them should something go wrong with my phone.
So a relatively easy day. I reached my target after about 45 mins then turned off the PC, hoping that I might get some more done in the afternoon. I didn’t. Tomorrow’s another day.
- Hit minimum word target
- Started major organisational task – number of notes on phone now 517
- Total word count for Day 3 – 1701
- Monthly total so far – 7132
