My NaNoWriMo Round 3: Week 2

It's autumn at James A. Garfield's house in Mentor, Ohio

What a busy week! Not only did I launch my company’s first ebook, but I also made some serious headway on this week’s NaNoWriMo goals.

I also made some time for a day trip to Mentor, home of the James A. Garfield National Historic Site. As many of my readers know, I am an avid National Park cancellation stamp collector and getting away for a day helps my creative process.

But back to National Novel Writing Month. Here’s the progress I made so far:

My Progress

Since last week, I submitted my play to three opportunities across the country. Some were play development workshops while others were play conference performance opportunities.

I also drafted a backstory of one character for my new writing project.

My Obstacles

It took my a few days to draft the character backstory because I really wanted to answer pertinent questions of the character’s story during the novel so that his storyline and personality was consistent and defined. This meant doing a lot of head-scratching before jotting my notes down on paper.

My Successes

In this rare instance, deadlines were my best friend. I was motivated to submit my play out this week due to the November 1 deadline as well as meet my backstory writing goal so that I could take my day trip out to Ohio.

My Goals

Next week, my goals are to submit to two play opportunities as well as draft two character backstories.

How are you writing goals coming along this week? Share your NaNoWriMo experience below.
