#NaNoWriMo2015 Diary -- Day 7



Day 7

Today was not as productive as I’d hoped it would be. Probably because it’s Saturday.

Only 2140 words written today, bringing the total to 14,676.

Hopefully more tomorrow. (Except that football is on…)

Also, there was a really “awesome” spreecast today hosted by NaNoWriMo Executive Director  Grant Faulkner in which he interviewed successful YA author Marissa Meyer, who wrote CINDER and has the final book in that series, WINTER, coming out Tuesday 11/10. Here’s a screenshot I took with my phone:


Marissa shared that her NYT bestseller CINDER was written as a NaNoWriMo novel. So that should motivate you for sure!

Marissa also matched the donations today with $5000 of her own in order to help fund this massive NaNoWriMo endeavor which has more than 400,000 writers participating, more than 2000 schools which have received Young Writers kits, and more than 1000 libraries. There are actual real meetings with real live people all over the place. You can find meetings and fellow writers near you on the NaNoWriMo website.

Be sure to follow Marissa on Twitter: http://twitter.com/marissa_meyer
And be sure to follow Grant Faulkner on Twitter too: http://twitter.com/grantfaulkner


Keep writing, everybody. Don’t be intimidated at this point. Things are getting good!
