Nanowrimo Days 1-5

Hello friends, who wants to hear me talk about my writing progress? I have been writing first thing in the morning between the hours of 12 am – 3 am. I’m writing everything by hand. It’s a slow process. I struggle with mental health and severe nerve damage, so my personal goal for Nanowrimo 2021 is to believe in myself again.

Because it’s more physically demanding to write 50k due to the nerve damage in my arm, I set my goal for 25 k. That equates to 850 words every day for 30 days.

I’m starting a brand new novel, I have no outline, yet the story is telling itself. In no chronological order, I set out to write whatever scene is calling me. Then when it is out on paper, I start to piece them together. It’s a puzzle, I will have some pieces put together here, the side pieces all in place, but it’s a 1,000 piece puzzle, and there’s not a solid image yet. I have to keep searching in the box for more puzzle pieces for the one that will fit.
