The 80 days seem to be flying by and I feel like I have had a really productive and exciting end to my writing week.
On Thursday I wrote for 40 minutes and wrote 1,214 words. I also posted my NaNoWriMo follow up and thank you everyone for your comments. I am starting to feel more excited then scared now (fun not fear!) and am glad I have made the commitment on here so I am accountable. Looking forward to planning out my next WIP (new notebook, check!) but for the next few weeks I am still going to focus on my current WIP.
On Friday I wrote for 40 minutes and wrote 1,201 words. I used the Write Anything prompt and it gave me a good idea for a scene in my WIP so I am going to count this in my WIP word count.
On Saturday I had a day off from writing. My boyfriend was here (we live 5 hours apart so time together is precious) and I wanted to spend the time with him. I did come out of my writing closet and tell him about my blog, writing, ROW 80 and my plans to do NaNo. This was a big step for me and he reacted perfectly. He knows I have talked loosely about writing and said it was good I am doing something about it. I was worried he would be upset that I hadn't told him for the two months I have been blogging (probably me projecting how I think I would react if he told me something similiar!) and said he understood if you tell people there is pressure. I feel great no I have told him and have his support and know if I am with him and need to write he will understand.
Today I wrote for 30 mins and managed 907 words. My WIP is now up to 16,921 words!
I definately hit my 30 mins a day (3 and a half hours a week) and exceeded this goal. I used the Write Anything prompt and posted 3 times (once this is posted). The only goal that I completely failed on was the exercising two times. I wasn't feeling well during the week so plans to swim went out of the window and whilst I did a little bit of walking I don't know if I am going to count it. So need to do better on this next week.
Off to check out some check-ins. Can't believe next week is week 8!
