Nanowrimo: Week 2 Update


The second week of the big Nano adventure of 2017 is over and so is my story.

Yep, you read that right. I finished my story. At 50168 words I finished my original nanowrimo story for the year. On day 13.

So what do you do when you have 16 days left of nanowrimo and no more story? You start a new one. Obviously…

I was hit with the shiny new idea syndrome about a week ago and my head just wouldn’t stop screaming at me so I said to myself: “If you finish your current story you can start writing your shiny new idea” Said and done, I wrote 27000 words in 6 days. Stats man, you gotta love ’em.

So today was my first day with my shiny new idea and it was glorious. It’s contemporary! I love contemporary, why I don’t just stick to contemporary is beyond me. Fantasy and all that jazz is so attractive but when it comes down to the nitty gritty of things contemporary is my jam.

The mountain bike aspect of the story might not be as prominent as I originally thought, but I’m still hilariously uninformed on the subject. Google is my friend, like they say, but google has not been very helpful this time. I think I need to do a bit more in depth digging but right now I just want to write, so that will have to be an issue for December.

So far I’ve been able to keep up with my goals of writing 2000 words minimum each day. Even a day like today, when I was completely beat after my marathon of getting to 50000 words yesterday, I still managed to get 2000 words down. It think I deserve a pat on the back. Or some thai food.
