Surprise, surprise, I am back with an update of week 2 for NaNoWriMo 2021!
Make sure you check out my week 1 update before reading this one 😉
Let’s just dive into this update because spoiler alert…I did not hit my goal of 10k by the end of week 2 OR my goal of having a 2k writing day.
And that’s okay!
It would have been awesome to hit 10k yesterday, but things just got too busy and it didn’t happen. Once again, that’s okay. I have to keep my head up and keep moving forwards.
Tip #1: Acknowledge “failure” and then move on
At first, I was a little bummed but I asked myself these questions: Does not hitting my goal of 10k impact my story at all? Nope. Does it ruin my story? Nope!
Then let’s just keep going. So, that’s what I’m doing.
Despite not hitting my goals, I’ve decided to still reward myself because I had a great writing week regardless. (I’ll get into the exact numbers in a minute.) I deserve a jade roller and sheet face mask whether for working on my story or because I powered through all my school work.
So, after dinner tonight, that’s exactly what I am going to buy at the store. Treat yo’self!
Now, let’s get into how much I wrote.
NaNoWriMo Week 2 Update
Monday, November 8: 1,184 words
Tuesday, November 9: 1,061 words
Wednesday, November 10: 1,051 words
Thursday, November 11: 801 words
Friday, November 12: No words
Saturday, November 13: No words
Sunday, November 14: No words
Total Week 2 Word Count: 4,097 words
Total Word Count: 8,592 words
Once again, no words were written Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, so that kind of segues into my goals for week 3 of NaNoWriMo. (Oh my gosh this is going by so fast.)
Week 3 Goals
- Write on Friday
- Write at least 800 words every day
- Hit 15k
Let’s see if I can hit these goals, but if I can’t, that’s okay! Repeat after me, “That’s okay.”
Okay, good. Now, that’s it from me, but how did you do this past week? How many words did you write? What is your reward for getting through the week? Let me know in the comments below 🙂
