NaNoWriMo 2021 | Day 30

  Done! I didn’t write one novel. I wrote two novellas each about 30k words. I had started with ~10k words and ended up at 61k. Not bad, huh? Shabana Mukhtar

NaNoWriMo 2021 | Day 28

2198 words today. Compensated for yesterday’s loss. I’m at 50411 words now, but ~10k was the outline, so I need 10K words now. Sheh! A long way to go. Shabana Mukhtar

NaNoWriMo 2021 | Day 23

  NaNoWriMo 2021 | Day 24 | Sprint 1 512 words. I wrote one small scene, and that’s all. NaNoWriMo 2021 | Day 24 | Sprint 2 I detailed out the scene that I had jotted down in the first sprint. Now, I’ve added 1173 words more. NaNoWriMo 2021 | Day 24 | Sprint 3…

NaNoWriMo 2021 | Day 22

The writing sprint began shortly after midnight. I wrote ~200 words. And then I continued after office hours. I finished 3817 words. A productive day. Shabana Mukhtar

NaNoWriMo 2021 | Day 19

870 words today. I know, it is only halfway through the daily goal, but it’s Friday, and I’m swamped with office work. Tomorrow, I hope to compensate for today. So long! Shabana Mukhtar

NaNoWriMo 2021 | Day 18

I am at 34251 words today. Just a little over the goal, and 10K behind my goal because I started with 10K words. Phew! It’s so hard. Shabana Mukhtar

NaNoWriMo 2021 | Day 15

Yesterday, I watched a YouTube video on Reedsy’s channel about NaNoWriMo mid-month slump. If you are a writer, you must have heard of it. If you aren’t, Reedsy is a platform that connects authors with professional like editors, covert designers etc. They also have a blog and a YouTube channel for writing, publishing, marketing advices….

NaNoWriMo 2021 | Day 14

This is getting tougher. I have a family wedding to attend to, and I didn’t even get time to scratch my head or even look at my WIP today, let alone writing a single word. 0 again. Shabana Mukhtar

NaNoWriMo 2021 | Day 13

  Only 234 words, that’s such a shame. But I have about 200 guests to attend to. I blame myself for taking part in NaNoWriMo 2021. I don’t think I can write enough to meet the goal this year. I have 17 more days, but still… Shabana Mukhtar

NaNoWriMo 2021 | Day 11

    I finished the day at 26786, which is roughly 16786 words in November. That’s about 120 words more than the target. I’m not doing so bad after all 🙂 The story is shaping up pretty nicely and I’m already getting ideas for sequels. I’m too ambitious at times. 19 days to go… Shabana…

NaNoWriMo 2021 | Day 9

Yayyy! I’m making progress, again. Finally!!! My current word-count stands at 25,587, out of which ~10K words were part of the outline. So, it means that I’ve finished ~15K words in these 9 days. Let me check **using google to do the math**. Hey, that was all I needed. I’ve finished a little over 15000…
