Day 3 of #NaNoWriMo and #wrimohero’s prompt was #calltoadventure – how do you generate ideas? I get a lot of my ideas from the environment around me. Places, found objects, the weather – my imagination spots the most random and insignificant things as I’m going about my day and runs riot with them! I collect these scraps of ideas, along with words, quotes, and anything else that takes my fancy, in my commonplace book. When the ideas are ready to become part of my story, they worm their way back out of the pages and into my writing.
Day 4 of NaNoWriMo is behind us and the prompt for #wrimohero was NaNoCheckIn – 6,668 words? The answer is yes! And more! I’ve had the best start to my first ever NaNo and have managed to bash out over 11,000 words so far! I’m glad to be getting ahead of the word count goal because, by all accounts, things get tough in weeks 2 and 3! So far, though, I am truly enjoying getting this story out onto the page. I was worried that I didn’t know where it was going to go but really, the story is writing itself, I’m just tapping the keys. I’m super excited to see where it goes.
Fellow NaNo-ers, how’s it going?

I can’t believe you were nearly 7k in on days 3/4!!! How are you getting on now lovely? I’ve been away travelling and won’t be back onto the writing for a few more days yet…!
Haha, oh man, not good at all. Super glad I got ahead early on because week two has been a nightmare! Fallen well behind. But I have managed to write SOMETHING every day so I’m taking that as a win even though my word count is down.
Wow, well done! Writing everyday even if it’s a small amount is still no easy feat! 🙂
