NaNoWriMo 2016: Week Three Recap

Week three was the winning point for me!

NaNoWriMo 2016 Week Three Recap

Word count

16. 2,053
17. 466
18. 874
19. 2,345
20. 2,186
21. 37
Week Three Total: 7,961
Overall Total: 52,231

I reached 50,000 words on November 19th! I was so proud of myself.

I had planned on reaching it on the 18th, but I didn’t continue my 2,000 words a day streak. That weekend was pretty busy and I was tired, but whatever. I did it and that’s all there is to it.

I want to continue writing each day though, even if it’s just a little bit… So don’t make fun of yesterday’s word count. Of course, it would be nice if I could write at least 100 words a day.

Short stories

I have six more short stories to write for Short Story Sunday next year. I’m not entirely sure if I’ll finish them by the end of the month, I hope to get most of them done.

Week three

For the final stretch of NaNo, I hope to finish all 52 stories and keep updating my word count every single day, even if it’s just a little bit.

How is NaNoWriMo treating you? Have you crossed the finish line yet? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Congrats! I’m so excited for you! I’m a bit behind (again) but hoping to get caught up over the next five days (ahead if I can help it). I’m motivated and have plenty to write. Now’s just a butt-in-chair kinda deal. lol

      1. No. I’m pretty new to writing. I’m just four weeks into my first creative writing class and still trying to build a daily habit. My goal is to do NaNo in 2018, but if things go good next year I may give it a shot then.

      2. There are Camp sessions of NaNo, too. They’re during April in July. It’s more flexible than November NaNo where you can choose your own word goal. So you can write 5,000 words in 30 days as opposed to 50,000 words. That might be a good starting point. Either way, I think you should join if nothing else but for the community. You’ll learn a lot and make so many great friends.
        Good luck with your writing, NaNo or not. πŸ™‚

  2. Congrats, Rachel! πŸ˜€ Wow, you type fast!
    I managed to hit 50k on the 21st, and that was largely due to one awesome day and other mediocre ones and other days that I just couldn’t write. It’s been a rollercoaster ride for me.
    I can’t, unfortunately, continue my writing as I have to study for my finals. (I should be doing it now – eek!) Anyway, happy Thanksgiving! πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks! Congrats on reaching 50k as well!
      I actually haven’t written in two days even though I wanted to write a little each day… There’s a lot to be done that doesn’t involve writing.
      Happy Thanksgiving! πŸ™‚

      1. Oh, yes, there are. Although I wish I could keep writing till my novel hits the end of Draft 1.
        Thank you! πŸ™‚ But we don’t celebrate that here. Love the spirit of it though. πŸ™‚

      2. You will complete the draft soon enough!
        Oh, that’s right. So many of my WordPress friends are on the other side of the world or in a different country, yet I always assume that everyone lives right down the street from me, lol. Happy Thursday to you, then! πŸ˜‰

Let me know what you think!
