Second NaNoWriMo Update

Posted November 16, 2016 by Jordann @thebookbloglife in NaNoWriMo, writing / 7 Comments

I have hit the halfway mark and it’s kind of bittersweet second NaNoWriMo update. I have written through some awful times this week, and I’m kinda missing having my lunch break to sit and read or just do nothing.

My husband is away for this week and I have to say it’s been tough, we have a ten month puppy which I am now solely responsible for looking after, meaning that instead of writing I have to be walking and praying for the pee to fall. It’s hard. I’m exhausted and we’re only on day two.

Enough of the general life bitching in my second NaNoWriMo update and onto the writing. I have hit 25,036 words and I feel fantastic and also like I want to cry. I am basically at what I thought was the ending of my novel, like I might be able to stretch another say 5000 words but yeah I’m done. Which is terrifying. I can’t even function right now. I don’t have a plan. I’ve just brought a potential love interest in, it’s too much.

Like my brain is literally melting. I can’t actually cope with the non-planned story elements. What will happen? Will my world explode in some random nuclear explosion? Maybe, who knows. Cause I don’t.

This is what I’m dealing with right now. If someone wants to bring me some nice warm coco, I really wouldn’t say no. In fact I might pull you into a hug that never ends and just gets that little bit awkward.

But that’s NaNo for you

How is your NaNo going this year? Are you on track or buckling under the pressure? Let me know in the comments!
