Word Count: 72,885
I’m really tired right now. Today is a Wednesday, and I’m excited because nest week we get three days, plus the usual weekend, off for Thanksgiving! To me this just means that I have an awesome amount of days without homework, where I can hopefully get to 90,000 words!
Today’s writing tip is to challenge someone else to a word count battle. Are you a little behind? Well, if you did your homework and found a writing buddy, I sure they would love to compete against you in a word sprint!
Why? It’s easy to challenge yourself, but when you have someone else holding you to these challenges, you might do better purely out of competition. Also, your writing buddy my have a trick or two up their sleeve that they are willing to share.
Also, today there is a virtual write in here if you want to participate. It’s in, like twelve hours, but you can check the countdown on the video if you wonder what time it is in your zone.
These virtual write ins are great for finding other writers. They have prompts and sprints, and then you can share some of what you wrote in the chat. They’ll read out some of them (they read mine last Wednesday!) and give shutouts to people who got a great word count for the prompt. It really is pretty fun.
I post a new NaNoWriMo update every week day on this blog. Like this post if you liked it, and you can follow my website via email, WordPress, or any of the social media widgets on the side. If you are reading this on Goodreads, then you can follow me or add me as a friend!
Also, for one day of NaNoWriMo I will do a Q&A about me, my work, or NaNoWriMo, so if you have questions then comment below or on the Q&A page.
Thanks everyone for reading!
