So this has been a complete failure. A lot of people finish this challenge, but there are those of us who fail as well. I was so motivated to start, but not being able to write every single day killed the writing spirit a bit. During the last week I have written a total of 0 words. Zero. Not a single one.
So how should I deal with this failure?
Firstly, I will look at my achievements.
- I have written over 10 000 words, which means the story is longer than anything I’ve written before.
- The story I’m writing, I’ve fallen in love with it.
- I know how many words I can write a day without problem.
Secondly, I will focus on them instead of the failure.
Thirdly, I will continue writing on this story even after NaNoWriMo has ended. If I can get this story to 50 000 words at any point it is an achievement.
How are you doing? Better I hope 😀 But if you are at the same page as me, don’t lose hope. Just continue writing a little every day and you will get to 50 000. Let’s make the comment section a motivation board.
