NaNoWriMo Day 12 & 13

1.    Introduction
Hello everyone. How are you? I am fine today.

This week, I am excited as I had been during previous weeks and I can’t wait to share what I discovered  on Day 12 and 13 of NaNoWriMo.

You could say it was the turning point in my NaNoWriMo journey. But before I could talk about the turning point, I first want to discuss about what I was so excited to watch this week.

Telugu movie Taxiwala by Vijay Devarakonda and CW TV Series The Flash Season 5 Episode 5.

At first, when they shared few clips of Taxiwala as a trailer, I was disappointed by it. So, when the option came for me, whether to watch Taxiwala or Fantastic Beasts and The Crimes of Grindelwald, I chose Fantastic Beasts and The Crimes of Grindelwald.

It was second movie in Fantastic beasts series and first movie was so amazing that I’ve been waiting for it since it’s been announced. When they released trailer, I couldn’t wait for more.

NaNoWriMo Day 10 & 11

Hello everyone,

I am proud to say that I wrote on both Day 10 and 11 of NaNoWriMo. I was worried my past streak of writing for a day, then skipping the next day, then writing the next day and skipping the next day, was going to continue on.

On Day 10, I felt like not writing. I procrastinated writing on that day till the night. I felt like it was foolish to write it and not a good writer.

Since I like to write in 15 minute sprints, I thought one sprint is  enough to break the streak of skipping a day after I wrote one day and sketched scene and sequel for the chapter.

Once I completed the first sprint though, I was interested to write just one more. Once it's done, only some part of the chapter left, like some part of sequel and I thought just one more sprint. I thought I could complete the chapter and wrote the third sprint. And I did complete the chapter and the sprint.

NaNoWriMo Day 8 & 9

Hello everyone,

How are you doing?

I am fine.

Yesterday, I watched Thugs of Hindhusthan. It was the worst film I had watched this year. It's sad to say this because great actors like Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachan acted in this movie and I had so much expectations that the movie didn't meet.

I was so disappointed with the movie that I couldn't be able to write on Day 8. I. Just. Couldn't.

Since this was a blog post reviewing the movie, I will post it in later.

But blaming on the movie is just an excuse. Out of 9 days, I skipped 3 days. I should've written 7 to 9 chapters by now. But I was able to write up to chapter 5 as of today.

Considering I should've written 1,667 words each day, today my word count should've been at 15,003. But my total word count is 10,452. I am lagging behind by 4,551 words.

NaNoWriMo Day 6 & 7

Hello everyone,

How are you today? I just finished writing Day 6 of NaNoWrimo and as of today, I wrote 7389 words.

I didn't write on Day 5 as I was travelling and it was very late by the time I reached my PG. Today, I thought of writing two chapters, but I ended up writing only one. That too only 1478 words.

According to goal set by NaNoWriMo, I should write 1667 words everyday. Since it was already 6th day, I should've written 10,002 words.
