November 9 Day 9 of NaNoWriMo 2020


Monday marks the start of week two of NaNo. I am wondering if I will ever hit my stride. Yesterday’s total of 356 pushes my overall word count to almost 3,500 so far. There are plenty of writers who manage three thousand words in a single day. I could be sad, discouraged, and succumb to thoughts of throwing in the towel. Nothing could be further from my reality.

I consider every word I write a hard-won victory. I never assumed getting to fifty thousand words would be an easy task. Chaos rules my days and carving out ten, twenty, or thirty-minute blocks where I can concentrate on composing a story just short of being a miracle. Reviewing my commitments, I see a break in my responsibilities, and it offers me a glimmer of hope, so I keep fighting the good fight.

Are you writing for NaNo?

How is Day 9 progressing?


Keep on writing.

Jo Hawk The Writer
