NaNoWriMo Fail

Good Morning all!

I think I had mentioned in an earlier post that I was participating in NanoWriMo this year.

For all those who don't know NanoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month, where people work vigorously all around the world to try and pound out 50,000 words to complete their Novel in the 30 days that November has.

I started off good, with a great outline and all.

This will be my second novel I have written. I have yet to publish the other, but I hope to turn it in to an e-book that will be available on kindle and such. But that's another long story because I've been working on it for about 3 years (It's a work of fiction that keeps going).

Anyways it's the 17th day and I've only written 2,453 words out of 50,000.

I know, I know major fail right. I know there's probably no way that I can complete the challenge this year but I am going continue to work on this Novel because I think I have a great story.

Content over word count is what I believe in, and I kind of knew I wasn't going to be on track from the beginning. Call it writers intution I guess.

Are any of my followers/readers participating this year? Are you on track to complete your Novel this month?

I'm pretty sure with only 2,000 words so far I've failed, although I haven't given up yet! Booo me! :(


  1. I believe in you!

    You can do it!

    Ask God to inspire your thoughts and print out something that reminds you of the book, and stick it on your ceiling above your bed. Every morning when you wake up, you'll have a new idea. I promise ;o]

    Keep Going!!!


  2. Thanks so much for the encouragement Mecca! I will definitly be trying your idea!

    -Nikki :)

  3. ooooh I didn't even know about this, at least now I don't feel guilty about it heh heh! Keep going with the novel, but maybe don't push it, true art can take any amount of time to be completed, and the best novels probably weren't written in a month :p X

  4. Thanks for the encouragement Kam!

  5. Nicole, I've been looking through your blog, and I have to say that I really appreciate your willingness to tackle really tough and even painful issues. I also admire your discipline in working to complete your second(!) novel. I find your hard work and honesty so encouraging and refreshing!
