NaNo 2019 Day 4 — All caught up!

Since it’s a bit late in the day, I’m not going to write a long post about how day 4 went yesterday. However, I wanted to share the final results of the Egyptian Tomb crawl:

Over two days of working (loosely*) through the crawl, I added 5,141 words to my project.

*’Loosely’ meaning that I did write a few words outside of crawl tasks, and I skipped both word wars in favor of sprints of that length. It’s like a word war, just against myself.

Again, for anyone who enjoys making writing into a game, I HIGHLY recommend the crawls. I’ll be back to my regular schedule of posting a day 5 recap tomorrow morning. In the meantime, when I get to writing for today I’m thinking I might do the Pride and Prejudice crawl next. It’s a long one, and will probably take a few days. Anyone want to join me?

Happy NaNo-ing!

I’ll be blogging my NaNo 2019 journey right here, so feel free to follow along. And let me know in the comments whether you like to turn writing into a game, and what your best techniques are for boosting wordcount.

  1. Oh the joys of a crawl to push you along. Rolling dice, setting timers, choosing my own adventure. I’m in for your next short one…

  2. I think I need to try this crawl thing. I feel like it kinda breaks things up well. Sometimes it feels like such a slog. But then again, I am always writing late and I keep falling asleep at the computer. Last night I was so annoyed. I finished my daily count and went to update NaNo and the last like 500 words went to today because…after midnight. Lol. Oops. At least j had logged the first 1100 already so I didn’t break my streak.

    1. Understood — sometimes those daily goals feel like the ‘end all.’ But we both know the most important thing isn’t whether you meet the daily goal every day, but whether you get to the end. 🙂
      If you decide to do a crawl, let me know — maybe I’ll do it with you!
