Day 3 of NaNoWriMo is ending in Australia but many others around the world are only just waking up to it. You might be thinking ‘it’s only day 3′ but I’m here to remind you of one very important fact. Time will fly.

I mean, how can we already be in November? Weren’t we doing this exact thing just yesterday? Sadly not. Time has gone that fast. So if you’re like me and you’re doing your darnedest to make the 50k goal, don’t get complacent, ok? Before you know it, it’s going to be 20th November and if you’ve become a little lackadaisical, you’re going to start freaking out.

However, if you’re doing this for a bit of fun but don’t care about the word count, by all means take all the time in the world and enjoy! 🙂

What are your personal goals this year? And how are you going with NaNo so far? Let me know in the comments section.

For me, not only am I determined to meet my 50k goal, I’m also determined to get my first draft FINISHED. It’s not often I actually finish a novel during NaNo so this year I’m going to do my best to make it happen.

As for how I’m going so far, my word count is currently at a healthy 7,884 words. That’s only two days of writing though. I haven’t written today yet, I’m actually about to start once I finish this blog. My goal is to hit 10,000 words tonight if I can. Overall I’m happy with my result, especially considering I’ve been working the last three days.

So, I bet you’re wondering if I managed to stay up past midnight when 1st November rolled around? Or you may not be. Either way, I will answer…

Yes, yes I did.

Okay, so I might have only lasted until 1:15am but in that time I wrote around 1,600 words. Considering how tired I was, I was happy with my efforts. I also managed to fit in some more writing that day, and my total day 1 total word count came to 5,280. Not a bad first day.

Okay, well it’s time for me to put these fingers to good use and write Wedding Wars. It’s not going to write itself.

That’s all for now. Keep writing and most importantly HAVE FUN. ❤
