Hey guys! So the first week of NaNoWriMo has come and gone so I thought I would give you all an update about how my writing is going. So I started NaNoWriMo with no outline but I did have a plan for what my story is and what will happen. I’ve been good at keeping to that plan but after four days I was really wishing I had a solid and detailed outline but I’m getting through it pretty well. Ever since day one I’ve been a day ahead and i’m proud to say I’ve kept that up! I feel very relaxed this year because I’m a day ahead of what I need to be so it’s nice that I don’t have to freak out if I miss a day. My story is a YA murder mystery, a high school student is found dead in the woods and is girlfriend is missing and assumed dead. My main characters name is Demi and she is obsessed with finding out what happened to her fellow classmates while also dealing with family issues and her own grief from her brothers suicide which happened a few years before the beginning of this book.
As I’m writing this post my word count is at 11,880. I’m really enjoying the experience this year and I haven’t been overwhelmed with stress yet which is nice.
Well that’s all for today I hope you guys are having success with your own novels and it’ll see you in my next post!
