The Last Prompts

  • Writer’s positivity:
  • Prompt:

These are the final prompts for this November. Kinda crazy, huh? I remember the first day of this month like it was just last week: I was getting mad because I was dying to start my novel, but my sister wanted on my laptop, and then my friend wanted to FaceTime, and then my brother was doing schoolwork on my laptop, etc. etc. In the end, I didn’t get to write till after lunch, and I was fairly displeased.

I think that day summed up the whole month, in fact. But as I grew used to writing so much, my average words per day went up to 1,800 – 2,000, and over time I slowly fell in love with my novel.

What about you, though? How did you cope with your WC? Or what kept you from meeting that count? I want to know how your NaNo went. Share your thoughts below, and I’ll see y’all on December 1st! 🙂

  1. Hey Sam! I’m excited for December 1, though I’m not sure if my book is at a good enough spot to be finished by then, though I’ll make my WC. I feel that I write better if I’m writing what I love, or a really interesting part. If I don’t necessarily know where I’m going with the part I’m writing, then it’s easier to get bored easily, even though I’m a panster. I’ve had a really fun time with this book though, and It’s made me even more excited to start my next book, and then my next series. Although, the more I get connected with my characters, the less I want to end the book! Or the series! Like John Steinbeck said, “To finish is a sadness to a writer– a little death. He puts the last word down and it is done. But it isn’t really done. The story goes on and leaves the writer behind, for no story is ever done.”

    1. Hi, Aynsley! I’m super excited for you, and I’m even more glad that you’re enjoying your book! 🙂 I’m the same way, as far as “pantsing” goes; I like to have direction, but it was fun to wake up every morning and say, “Okay, something needs to happen today. But what?>”

      I totally understand when you say you’re not wanting to end the book. I’m feeling the exact same way right now, especially since I’m not planning to write a sequel. That quote is so true! I think about that all the time. 🙂 No matter how much a reader loves a story, I don’t think anyone could love it quite like the author … 😉
