NaNo 2018 – Day 5

Daily record of my 2018 NaNoWriMo journey…


NaNo 2018 – Day 5

Goals:

  • To hit daily minimum word target of 1667
  • Edit Chapter 2 of Oath Broken
“Something is better than nothing…”

A slow day. I did wonder if I was going to bother trying to get anything done, but I have scheduled Mondays (along with Fridays) as posting days for chapters for Oath Broken on Wattpad. So, I did edit and post chapter 2. You can read Oath Broken here. Sorry for the shameless promotion but I need to fill today’s post out somehow… 😉

I decided to call it quits for today, once that was completed. I’m ahead of the estimated word count for this stage of the challenge (8,333), thanks to a good Day 1 & 2, but I am almost 1000 words short of the daily minimum target. But at least those numbers are still ticking over…

Maybe I’ll look into some more writing techniques. Any suggestions?

Achieved:

  • Oath Broken Chapter 2 edited
  • Total word count for Day 5 – 685
  • Monthly total so far – 9507

  1. What kind of writing techniques are you looking for? I really like KM Weiland’s blog “helping writers become authors” and Youtube writer-vloggers Jenna Moreci and Ellen Brock. Although lately I find myself procrastinating (er, I mean, focusing on world-building) by learning all about historical armor and weapons from a great vlogger named Metatron.
