NaNoWriMo Update #1 (Day 5)
I feel so powerful! I resisted the alluring BookTube videos and tweets that were calling out to me and actually wrote! And not just a few words here or there. On Sunday I was a total beast and knocked out over 5,000 words without even trying.
Top #= words that day
And that calendar was a big part of my success so far. It sounds stupid, but the OCD in me HATES seeing that 0 every day. So I vowed to never not write ever again (if that double negative makes sense). Usually once I start writing I can't stop. So the push to write is all I need and then I'm off and POOF-- 5,000 words.
This calendar is literally eye level from my bed so it's the first thing I see in the morning...after my life sized poster of Daemon Black...just kidding...I wish I had one of those to wake up to every day. Maybe I'd actually be a morning person.
But I digress...If you're struggling to feel motivated, and you happen to have OCD tendencies, you might want to try this method out. I also decided if I ever get stuck to just put my ipod on shuffle and whatever song it lands on that's the mood of a scene I have to work on. Sounds fun write? Ok now I'm just getting cheesy. Good luck guys.
