NanoWriMo: Week 1 Update

     One week of Nanowrimo has officially passed, and somehow I'm still alive. So far, things are going pretty well and I like my story for the most part. Here is a rundown of how each day went!

Tuesday, November 1: Day One
 Final Word Count: 2132 words
   
The goal of course, is always to get ahead and stay there. In the beginning, it is easiest to do so. I find it hard to make time for writing during the week with school, but I am determined. I was happy to get ahead this much.

Wednesday November 2: Day Two

Final Word Count: 3,450

I didn't write 1, 667 word today, so it is good Igot ahead yesterday. I have a huge research paper due tomorrow for my English class, so that unfortunately was my main focus today.
I still met the word goal of 3,334 for today!

Thursday November 3: Day Three
Final Word Count: 5,026

It is 5k day and I made it! 5,000 may not seem like much in the grand scheme of things, but it is still a lot to me. I'm still ahead, technically.

Friday November 4: Day Four
Final Word Count: 6,103

I planned on writing a lot more today, it is Friday anyways. But I did not. I have a busy weekend but hopefully I can make it up soon.

Saturday November 5: Day Five

Final Word Count: 8,000

Slowly catching back up. I wrote more today than I thought I would be able to. I was gone all day for a school event. Then, after that I was at a close friends birthday party until about 7:30. I was happy to get this many word in!

Sunday November 6: Day Six
Final Word Count: 11,075

I have no clue how this happened. I was gone from about 2 pm until 10 pm today for another birthday party (Crazy, I know right) and a Walking Dead watch party. I wrote a really awesome scene today that i am proud of.

Monday November 7: Day Seven
Final Word Count: 11,435

I know, I know. I am disappointed to. Mondays are just bad though, Hopefully I will get caught up tomorrow as i have no school because it is Election Day.
(Spoiler alert from Day 8; I am caught up!)

Overall, I am very happy with the first week of NanoWriMo. Let me know how yours is going! I'll be back with a Week 2 update soon.

     When I was first asked to do this post, I had a completely different theme planned. But in light of recent events that have happened in my personal life, I knew the only thing that seemed relevant was Friendship. If I could have a Loot Crate with anything I ever wanted inside, friendship seems like the perfect theme.


Item #1     As a proud book blogger, I couldn't have a subscription box without a book. When it came to the topic of friendship the first book that came to my mind was none o…

My 2018 in Books So Far...

Hello booklovers! I decided that a wrap up of what I have read in 2018 so far would be a great way to jump back into my blog! This year started out as amazing reading year for me already. While towards the end of February I did start to dwindle off some with reading, I am still happy with what I have accomplished so far! So without further ado...


JANUARY #1- Through the Woods by Emily Carroll

I started off 2018 with some Graphic Novels. This one was so interesting and unique. Some of the stories gave me chills! I couldn't stop reading. IT was just the right amount of creepy and beautiful. The art was so amazing and I absolutely loved the color schemes.





Hamilton Book Tag

The musical, Hamilton, has been my favorite thing for over a year now. I have been utterly obsessed and I even give it credit for me passing my AP History exam. Considering all this, I thought it was about time I do the Hamilton Book Tag! This tag was created by Maureen Keavy.  Also, if you haven't listened to Hamilton yet, One, What are you even doing wit your life? Two, Go listen!

1. The Room Where It Happens: A book world you would put yourself into


     The first answer that came to my head was Harry Potter, obviously. But, if I'm trying to be unique I would have to say the A Court of Thorns and Roses series, more specifically, The Night Court, for obvious reasons.

2. The Schuyler Sisters: An Underrated Female Character


     Seriously why are all my answers automatically Harry Potter? I recently binge watched all the Harry Potter movies over Winter Break with my sister, so maybe that is why. Its no secret that Luna Lovegood is one of my favorite characters from the series…
