Monthly Challenge: April

This month I set myself another writing based challenge. In preparation for NaNoWriMo this November, I decided to try my hand at writing 1,667 words a day. That is the required daily word target to hit the 50,000 word target in 30 days. I thought 1,667 words a day would be easy but it actually isn't. I managed it but not every day. So I didn't technically complete the challenge but if I had, I'd have completed NaNoWriMo in the month of April instead of November so I'm not sweating the fail too much. It was still good practice. On my best day, I wrote exactly 3,500 words! I was on a massive roll and getting that much written made me feel unbelievable. I was on such a high, I just wanted to get up and start dancing but just kept letting the words flow out of me instead.

Super pumped that I had this practice run through before NaNoWriMo; now I know what to expect. Can't wait for November. I'm hoping by then I'll be moving onto the second draft of my novel but we will see.

Until next time,
