3DNC – End of Day Two

Posted on Updated on

End of day two. I guess that means I owe you a blog post!

Day two was not my best day. I gave up fairly early in the day considering I didn’t start until 10am and took a two hour nap after lunch. I just couldn’t write this story anymore. I don’t want to say for sure that I’ve quit the contest – I may wake up wondrous tomorrow – but I quit today. Mentally, I’m not there. It’s t the stress of the move, I know. Change is harder on me than it is for most folks. It was really poor planning on my part.

But I did write some so as promised, the statistics:

– 8,915 words
– 23 pages
– 8 chapters

It’s the furthest I’ve ever gotten in writing a novel. The novel I’ve worked on the most (which admittedly wasn’t much) has just a hair over 8,000 words, half of which I’m planning to scrap. So, all in all, I say this was a success for me whether I do anything tomorrow or not.

But seriously, don’t expect me to do this next year.

    I think , the fact that you even signed up to do this is success enough. Under the stress of moving etc timing was totally off…. so be happy that you did what you did. it shows great commitment on your part as a novice writer… we are very proud of you and your effort… looking forward to reading your 8000 words,,,, hahaa

    […] is too long. I could commit to one weekend of intense writing (and as some of you remember, I gave up at least once) but a month is too long. I didn’t meet the “estimated” word count for 3-Day […]
