Surprisingly, I haven’t yet fallen behind! I managed to do slightly over the 1667 word daily target every day up until Day 6 (Thursday), where I had a bit of a slip and only managed 500! However, I managed to catch it up yesterday, and as of last night, I was up to 11,679 words (I don’t know how many words I’ll manage today yet!).
The problem I think I had on Thursday was that I started to hit problems with my plot. As I mentioned in my post last week, I signed up last minute and had done no preparation, so have pretty much been making it up as I have been going along. For the most part, this hasn’t worked out too badly, but on Thursday I got to the point where I couldn’t really see where I was going with it, and didn’t really know how to proceed. However, I managed to come up with a way forward, and have been ploughing on, so hopefully I won’t hit any more plot holes soon!
So I’d love to know, how has everyone else been getting on in the first week of NaNoWriMo?
