Day 2: Saturday 2nd November 2013
Here we go again. Brand new day, new objective. As I said it before my aim is to write around 1600 words a day. Unfortunately, I didn’t met the deadline I had because I had to do some groceries in the morning and it took me a pretty long time as I had to take the bus because the grocery’s store was outside the city. When I came back, I was starving so as I enjoy cooking I baked a nice dish and it took me a while to do it so it was almost 5pm when I finished. In the evening we had to attend the East Winds Cinema Festival, so it took me all evening long.
I only wrote 300 words today, I hope It won’t disabled me. I’m very enthusiastic about it and I’m still ready for the challenge.
Day 3: Sunday 3rd November 2013
Something very important in the student life is the balance between leisure and work. Though it may be hard to be reasonable sometimes, it’s a strength I think I have. I won’t mind missing a big party to finish a work if it’s really important. I’m dedicated to the project I undertake: it’s one of my qualities. Since I decided to take part in this project I knew for sure that I would have to sacrifice some of my plans for it to meet my deadline. I have to confess that I was particularly lazy today and I didn’t go any further in my novel. I wrote 200 words. I have the story in my mind but I don’t know if it’s a good story actually I’m hesitating to change my plot with something very different.
I began writing my story on the very first day of the competition, I didn’t wright anything before. Neither a summary of my story nor a plan. I had a story in mind, and I was just writing how it came. After a while, I was afraid of writing something boring so I decided than instead of carry on writing I should rather think about it for a few days. Structure the story, make some research. Though being spontaneous can be a good thing, it might be the source of problems sometimes because it can end up with messy and unorganized outcomes. And this is not what I want.
Days 3,4,5,6: I have been thinking about my story. I took some notes, made some research. I was very dubious regarding my script but I realized that it was too late to begin everything over and that it would be better to carry on with the current story I had. As far as i was coming up with my story I was realizing how tough it will be to finish my project with all the homework I have. Two documentaries, a 2500 words essay, packages, my blogs to update.. I knew it since the beginning but my assessments are in the end of the month, almost the same day as the NaNoWriMo. Anyway, I’ll see how it goes but to make it until the end it’ll be extremely demanding.
Also, I can’t focus when I’m at home so I think from tomorrow I’ll go work at the library.
