In Which I Talk About Goals and the Evil That is Twitter

Today I created some of the best writing I think I have ever made. Sure there was that one erotic scene, and everyone seemed to be crying the entire time, but it is some of my best writing and by far the best work in Enchant so far.

It just shows that you become a better writer with practice. And I've had my share of writing practice in the last five days.

I wrote a lot today, 5,000 words. It's a lot of words. And tomorrow, 5,000 words is my same goal. You know why? Because with those next 5,000 words, I will hit 25,000 words, making me half done with NaNoWriMo. In less than a week.

NaNoWriMo has already made me a better writer, and it is also making me a faster writer. My sanity is still in tact and I love writing even more now.

Here is today's advice:
  1. Set a goal and stick with it. Today after I had written about 2,000 words, I was ready to stop. But I had told myself earlier in the day that I would write 5,000 words today. And I did it, which I am so happy about.
  2. Don't worry about the NaNoWriMo site. It goes up and down all the time, so instead of reloading the page, just write and update your word count later.
  3. Stay away from twitter. I probably could have doubled today's word count if I hadn't been checking my @ replies every five minutes.
I hope everyone is doing great with their NaNo projects. Just so you know, three new books have been added to the updated "My Books" tab. They are cool ideas that I can't wait to get working on.

Til tomorrow,



  1. I no what you mean!!

    Twitter is SOOOOO distracting!

  2. Twitter is very distracting and setting a goal helps a lot!

  3. I'm glad I don't use Twitter xD But the NaNo site being slow is soooo annoying. Updating my word count motivates me!

  4. I update my wordcount a little bit too often x'D Like: oh, now I've written another 500 words, *update* Makes me feel better =3
    Good job so far! I'm way behind you, but I can't start caring about that right now. x'D It would make me cry and give up.
    Let's go let's go let's go.


Thank you for helping me reach my dreams!
