The goal count for staying on track of having 50,000 words by midnight 11-30 is 21,671 words by today. I have 27,422. I am more then halfway there. I love how this story is just flowing. I only had an idea of the story, but nothing planned out. It is just coming together. I now understand those authors that say the characters write the story. I'm just along for the ride. @nanowrimo #nanowrimo #writingnovels #writinganovel #authorwannabe #novelwriting #writing #wordcount

Things are happeniiinnnggg! Thanks to some sage advice and some very helpful friends, I got the encouragement I needed to keep trucking. Today was almost as high as the first time terms of words in a day. 4k and some change. . . 30k down, 20k to go! . . Trying really hard to not rely on filler or fluff. Having focused on short stories in the past, and being a bit of a minimalist, I've always been a strictly A to B writer. Anybody else struggling with that? . . #nanowrimo2019 #nanowrimo #writinganovel #30k #alldownhillfromhere #writingadvice #writingcommunity
I made it above the word count target for the day, but I am actually writing much more than this calculates. The negative word count that Dabble tracks makes me nervous, but also reassures me that a positive word count number is all 'new' words added. 🥰 I have changed the way I use the app as a reference to prevent the negative number from being a daily total. Most of my writing at the moment is plot notes and revision of what is already in Dabble, using copy & paste from Word. So I have actually added 1521 words today, while I revised chapter one to be from the first-person perpective of my main character. Changing the perspective made it easier to add in certain background information that I thought might need to come in an oddly placed flashback scene. 😆 My stats at #nanowrimo have changed by one day, but I know I will not finish this first draft by Nov. 30, even if I reach the 50,000 word goal. I have been pleased with my progress, but I am also admitting to myself that if I had come into this month better organized (considering that I wrote the first words for this novel over two decades ago), I might have had a very solid first draft by month end. As it stands, this writing is a learning experience, loads of good practice, hard work, but obsessively satisfying. My corkboard is seeing some use, but I suspect I will end up using it for the bad sketches I need to create to keep my geography consistent. 👀
Well, yesterday I said I would have to write 2030 words each day for rest of the month to reach the goal. Well, 2082 today. Not sure where this story is going, but now the #gnomes have gotten involved...my 3" high little wonders. @nanowrimo #Nanowrimo2019 #amwritingfantasy #amwriting #writinganovel #writingcommunityofinstagram #writingcommunity #keepwritingforward

Would you like to learn some tricks for writing dialogue with a spark like this? (This is unedited first-draft work by our students Frances and Olivia.) Join us for our dialogue writing workshop this Saturday in Auckland CBD - follow link in bio for details and bookings.
Hey guyssss. How's your week going? Are you achieving your writing goals? Today I got my first publishing contract. Bad news is it was from vanity press and I'm going to decline it. However, it still felt good to have the contract in my hand (they sent me a physical copy). Even though I won't work with these people, what I am sure of now is that my book is good enough to be published. I already knew that, but this is a confirmation. So this has given me more energy to keep up with my plan to self-publish which is already on the go. I'm hoping to publish during 2020, I'll let you guys know the details 😊 #selfpublishing #selfpublish #indieauthor #indieauthorsunited #authorlife #authorcommunity #authorsofig #authorsofinstagram #writerscommunity #writingposts #writinganovel #nanowrimo #writeeveryday #writers
I definitely recognise the importance of early work and writing. I've gotten a lot of work done in the morning too. But because of a lot of different things I generally only get to write in short sprints late at night. So I guess you could call me a night time writer?? What about you all??
This is how my first #nanowrimo2019 is going, a bit behind but I feel like I can do this. #writingcommunity #writinganovel #writersofinstagram #firstdraft
A break . I have been writing for several hours every day the last two months. In that time I have gone from a blank page to a 80 000 words long manuscript with a beginning, a middle and an end. I have even done some editing. . But then. Then. It was like hitting a wall. Suddenly, a few days ago, I felt that I had no idea what to do with one of my characters. A part of me think that I need to do some major changes with her, but you know how it is ... Major changes is like an hurricane sweeping in over your perfekt garden. It’s just not something that’s easy to decide. . I have been thinking SO MUCH about this. Change her and maybe get a better story? Or is it good as it is? And then I realized that I need a break from writing. Not a long break, but maybe a week, just to process things. So today I have been walking along the beach in Brighton, with a coffee in my hand. I have been exploring this new city. I have been reading just for fun . Talking to friends I miss from home, and my mother. I really needed this. . How do you take care of yourself when you need a break?
We are very close to the Nano goal of 50,000 words! Now just to get to our goal of 100,000! What gets you motivated toward a goal? Do you treat yourself along the way or have a prize at the end or is just winning something enough for you?

Hey there Fiction Lovers, 📚 Leave a comment if you've ever felt as though you were looking at a mountain due to a challenging situation you faced. (see link in bio) 🏔 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ When adversity comes your way do you ever think, why me? Okay. Now here's a different perspective. Why not you? Sometimes a mountain exists until the right person and time comes along to move it. You may be that person. And this may be your time.

#nanowrimo2019 Day 13 and my progress has ground to a halt again... I think the worst part about being an adult is having to prioritise work stuff that you actually have to get done rather than do the thing you love 😭 Why can't we all just survive on passion, love and play rather than having to earn a living... ? Ok... yeh... I know 😂 Anyway, to cheer me up on my 3rd consecutive day of no words, here's a picture of my cat 🐱 He's a real cuddly cutie although he looks very regal in this photo 🙂 To all those still plugging away at #nanowrimo ... you guys are frickin awesome, keep it rolling 🔥😁 I'll get back to it soon I hope! #writers #writinglife #writerslife #writingcommunity #writersofinstagram #writer #writersnetwork #writelife #writing #writinglife #novelist #fictionwriter #work #writerforlife #nano #keepwriting #writingcommunityofinstagram #nano #bookwriting #writingabook #writinganovel #crazywriter #love

The book I’m revising right now is called Half Tree. Oddly, it has been called Half Tree from the beginning and I haven’t once changed it. ・ But #LitServiceTuesday (a day late) asks for a one word title. ・ So I guess: Bark. ・ The tree is central both literally and figuratively, but getting through the bark is the MC’s central challenge. ・ The name will be Half Tree, tho. 🤣 ・ #writersofinstagram #writer #authorssupportingauthors #litloop #writingcommunityofinstagram #writingcommunity #writersworld #authorsofinstagram #writingtime #writinganovel #supportingauthors #authorssupportingauthors #writerslife #authorslife #authorsofig #authorsofinsta #writersofig #writersofinsta #amwriting
Sharing all about my move back to the South on the blog this morning and discussing all things gut feelings & impulses. Link to full story in my bio! ✨✨
I’ve found writing to be isolating at times. Whereas there is a certain comfort in submerging yourself in the world you’re creating, there is always a moment where you could do with someone holding your hand or having your back. Today, I didn’t write for #nanowrimo but I did write with my writing friends over tea and cookies. They are quickly becoming my cheerleaders and my advisors. Writing tools are more than books and YouTube tutorials. #writinganovel #writingabook #writerssupportwriters
Are you a morning person, or a night owl? #nanoornot19 with @juliascottwrites and @btleditorial Morning vs. Night I tend to do better in the afternoon or evening. My creative brain doesn’t do mornings, but I can edit. I am definitely not a morning person. #1wordpromptchallenge with @mjvaughn1_author Hair #wordishnovember with @lmcarverwrites and @watchherwrite Love The gym doors were propped open to let in the early October breeze, but the kids streaming in heated the place up, stale air mixing with the scent of crammed together bodies. Ninth graders filled the bench on either side of me, a bunch of girls. Hairspray and Love’s Baby Soft did little to overlay the scent of boy sweat and dirty gym socks embedded in the building’s walls. #authorschallenge2019 with @debratorresswrites Newspaper I Would Write For A fictional paper I could write for might be Advocates for Young Adults on the Spectrum or Raising Boys or how about Raising a Princess in a Houseful of Boys!

I just finished writing a scene that had me feeling all kinds of emotions. I guess that's good🤷‍♀️but it was hard to get through.

When you say "I woke up like this and immediately started writing" & you aren't lying 🙌 . . 15,564 words written. 6,107 words behind schedule 📝 . .
Officially reached the halfway point at 25,336 words! Right on track to hit 30K by the end of the week. 🙌 Tracking my word count is something I don't typically do, but I've found it to be super motivating. Having a daily and weekly goal makes my planning heart happy and I love being able to tick off each goal achieved with a gold star. 🌟😂 .

How many agents should you query before you stop to reconsider? And what should that reconsidering look like? Querying agents can not only tell you if your novel still needs work, it'll help you figure out what publishing path you really should be on (rather than what society tells you to do).
So continuing with #CharacterAppreciationMonth we've reached Tom 😍 As with Elivia, I've included a little snippet from Book 9 (though much of his chapters haven't been written yet so more like a quote), as well as his Daemon - which would have to be a ferret - his personality type and of course, his Hogwarts house - Hufflepuff 💛💛💛 We got any fellow Hufflepuffs in the house?

Dad's Motivation or NOTHING (Jockey's tagline best goes for our relation) By the way, this is too personal (I am talking about the content that follows) My attitude, my arrogance, my perfectionism, my discipline (Last NOUN used in the statement, I believe I am! (Wink, wink and wink)) I wasn't born with these, I was brought up with these! And the round comb! A typical man's hairdo help, I don't know why I still use that... I remember him combing my wavy hairs when I was a kid... Why didn't my Mom comb mine? (Whatever!) He has trained me for everything! And I have grown up to be a mini-him. Is these kind of people called as the LIFE COACH? They should be! He is ONE... The days I am demotivated, I head straight to the red rectangle with white play symbol exactly on the middle of it, types "Women", and my inhumane gismo completes "Women Motivational Speech", now that my gadget knows, this human owner of it would be there for nothing else! All these resulting in wasting GB and MB! Dad's Motivation is only what works for tomboys! I go terribly mad at my DAD, at times. But end up realizing and then questioning myself, "HOW DARE I?"... Finding me good? THANK MY DAD... Finding me bad? STILL THANK MY DAD, if it wasn't he who trained me I would have been the worst! I am a mini-DAD (but for some reason my mom interprets it differently, she says, Baap Numberi Beti Dus Numbri!) - Not Dad's G̶i̶r̶l̶ - #amalfarhan #amalfarhanwrites #thewomanofletters #amwritingfiction #writerslifeforme #writingcommunityofinstagram #bibliophile #writingproject #writingabook #writersworld #jockey #writingtips #contentwriter #writingtime #writinganovel #supportingauthors #authorslife #amwriting #supportwriters #supportauthors #authorsofig #authorsofinstagram #writersofinstagram #comittedtowriting

Hey Project Fire, I'm back! After 3 days of busily working on 🏢 articles, I'm back to capture all those words again and throw them back onto the page. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The goal is to write 5K today to catch up, but whatever words I get down, I'm okay with them. As long as something gets written, I'm happy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After all, it's still progress. 😀 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How's everyone holding up? Nanowrimo is getting tough. My fellow Slytherins, tell me in the comments how's week 2 treating you? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #writingfantasy #ProjectFire #writingispassion #amwritingfantasy #writingabook #writingthings #iwriteya #femalewritersofinstagstam #mywritingspace #writereadrepeat #writingismagic #writinganovel #creativewritingofinstagram #finishthatdraft #writerscorner #writersloveforever #wipinspiration #novelinspiration #storytelling #writingispassion #ilovewriting #writingaseries #writingfun #malaysianwriters #NanoHouseCup #amwritingdarkfantasy #darkwriting #writingspace #fantasywriter #NanoHouseCupSlytherin
I'm sure Kindle samples aren't really supposed to be downloaded for finding Comparative Titles for Querying, but with a lack of English book shops here, I've got to do what I can. 😆 Not sure than ANY of these are like my book (not really sure that ANYTHING is like my book... which I look at as both a positive and a negative! 🤣) So the quest continues... #writeintothedark #writinganovel

Sometimes #5amwritersclub is filled with “administrative” tasks, like fighting with scrivener to re-accept my license, paying the daycare, putting a friend’s MS on my kindle, and printing my 2nd act in it’s new order. (Hoping I have enough toner to print it all...)

°Fokus° Guten Morgen ihr Lieben! Wie geht's euch? Ich hoffe ihr kommt, wenn ihr teilnehmt, beim NaNoWriMo alle gut voran :) (ich war ja etwas zu spät dran) °Was fällt euch zum Fokus in euren Geschichten ein?° Bei mir liegt der Fokus ganz klar in den Empfindungen und inneren Konflikten der Protas. Ich liebe es, sie zu beschreiben und hervorzuheben. Ich wünsche mir, den Leser in den Prota einzuchließen, damit er an jeder Situation genau teilhaben haben und sich bis zum letzten Wort darin verlieren, sowie den Prota bei seiner Entwicklung begleiten kann. Worauf legt ihr beim Schreiben euren Fokus? *zum Bild: Das ist der Plot zum ersten Teil meiner Reihe. Das Cover hab ich selbst zusammengebastelt.

I totally thought I had posted my #annoyingwordcountforthedaypost for 11/12 🤣 It was my lowest daily total, but still above what was recommended to keep me on track. 🎉
It's no coincidence that I'm reading this book as parts of the country I've chosen to make my home burn. It's no coincidence because climate change effects are being seen more regularly and more catastrophic. Naomi Klein is a brilliant writer and I feel that she's given my emotions words based on the facts. If anyone wants to get more acquainted with the subject that is woven into the multifaceted fibre of everyone's lives then I would recommend this book. It offers solutions - not just doom - and ultimately that's why I'm reading it - writing about it - and sharing it - we have solutions - but we can't do them alone xx . . . #naomiklein #onfire #climatechange #takeaction #future #lovebooks #lovetoread #workingfromhome #booklover #Australiawriter #bookworm #bookish #booktime #bookstagram #booknerds #authorlife #authorofinstagram #author #writerscommunity #writinganovel #writingfuel #writersofinstagram #writersblock #writersofinsta #amwriting #amreading
Newspaper? Write for one? 🤔 I like to write informative things but not really news-ie things. I wrote an article years ago about Books, Babies and Literacy for a local magazine. I was the head librarian at the time in little town in the Great Wide North. When I look at a newspaper, I usually want a red pen.

What is your motivation to write? That's not an easy question to answer for me. It varies and it's usually not just one motivational push. Like most writers I've talked to, I live vicariously through my characters and go on travels that I have done in the past or would like to do in the future. ⁠ ✍️⁠ One of my biggest passion, though, is giving a voice to the amazing experiences women have as they reach midlife and beyond. We know that older men, silver foxes, are generously represented in movies and books... that goes less so for older women. ⁠ ✍️⁠ ✍️⁠ ✍️⁠ #writingquotes #authorschallenge2019#amwritingfiction#writingcommunityofinstagram#writingproject #bookreader #readersofinstagram#writingabook #writersworld #avidreader#authorsofinstagram #writingtips #writingtime #writinganovel #supportingauthors #authorssupportingauthors #authorslife #amwriting#supportwriters #supportwritersandauthors#supportauthors #authorsofig #authorsofinstagram #authorsofinsta #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writersofinsta #writerscommunity #writingprompt #writingprompts
we're a little over a week into #nanowrimo2019 and I've found the following strategy working for me. The idea is to write approx. 1,667 words per day. Trying to get that all out in one shot is hard, especially when you're not used to writing all the time. Instead, try breaking that up into three sessions of about 600 words. If you do 3 rounds of 600 you'll get 1,800 words in a day! Anyone else have any #nanowrimotips ? #WriterLife #WritingLife #WritingCommunity #ImAWriter #AmWriting #AmWritingspeculativefiction #writingtips #writingprocess #writersofinstagram #writerslifeforme #writerscommunity #Floridawriters #writinganovel #fellowwriters
Anybody got any tips for when you reach the end of your story and you still have 24k words to write? 😅 . . #nanowrimo2019 #nanowrimo #authorlife #amwriting #writinganovel
Happy Tuesday my loves! I have to tell you that my first day back was a doozy! I should have prepared myself for it mentally, but I didn’t. . It started by arriving to the office to no heat, apparently the furnace went out on one of the coldest weekends here in Canada (did you know Alberta was the coldest place on earth this weekend?) then proceeded into challenge after challenge with clients, and technology, and clients! Haha. . . But if I learned anything from this weekend it was to move forward, always. It was to break things apart and attack the pieces. . . When obstacles get in your way, what is your go to? Do you take a step back and observe the obstacle, study it, and approach it with a plan? Do you take a run at it, and hope to clear it? Do you get overwhelmed by being unprepared, turn around and head back in the direction to came? . . . #conquerthegauntlet #riseabove #taurusfullmoon #fullmoonintaurus #writingcommunity #writerscommunity #wordsprints #writerforlife #writer4life #writinginspiration #writinganovel #amwriting #writinglife #writerlife #writinggoals #wordsprints #writingishard #writerslife #girlboss #bossbabe #bosslady #lawofattraction #manifestation #growthmindset #growth #designyourlife #bestlife #dreamlife
So I figured, after the 2564 words added today, that means I have to do at least 2030/2031 words per day to reach the 50,000. Yep, that's doable. 🙄😳 @nanowrimo #Nanowrimo2019 #amwritingsupernatural #amwriting #amwritingfantasy #writinganovel #writerscommunity #writergoals2019 #icandothis #ithinkicanithinkican
