Box of Shame: NaNo Update


Hello everyone! I’m sorry to have been so quite this month, I’m sure you all know that NaNoWriMo is in full swing. I’ve been getting terribly behind on blog posts (luckily I had a few pre-scheduled) reading and putting up reviews. If I’ve missed any comments or replies on my posts, I apologize — I promise it’s not been on purpose!


As far as NaNo progress, I’m falling behind there too. I’m not a naturally quick writer and fitting 1,667 words into each day is proving really difficult. I’m currently — on the 15th, the halfway point — sitting just under 18,000 words. I’ve also hit the point were my lack of research and planning are showing, and I think I’m going to loose a few days to making up for it. I’m determined to keep going though, even if I fail I’ve never written so much in such a short space of time.



My goals for this month, aside for crying and screaming as I try to reach 50k, is to finish my current three books (Ensnared, The Blazing Star and Cruel Beauty) and to get a mini-review round up post in lieu of proper reviews for those, Anna Dressed in Blood and Stalking Jack the Ripper. I’m hoping that’s doable.

Good luck to anyone else taking part in NaNo — you can find me under the username foxesfairytale if you’re interested, and I’m happy to chat — and I’ll see everyone else on the other side.

  1. Good luck on your writing! There’s no-one here who’s going to be mad if you don’t manage to get 50k, so don’t pressure yourself into doing things you don’t want to do or don’t have time to do. There’s nothing wrong with not writing your entire book in one month! So don’t be ashamed!
