NaNoWriMo 2017 | Diary | Week 3

I hope you’ve read the first and second week’s diaries of this year’s NaNoWriMo challenge. My French trip is ending this week, I go back home on Monday (yay). Will I be able to write a bit? That’s the surprise.

Sunday – 12th November 2017

I’ve met a couple during my time in Montpellier. I think I have a “Hey, come and talk to me, I’m nice.” kind of face, what do you think? Anyway, I’ve worked a bit on my writing on the train (my actual job, not my novel). Having to write content for a job is so cool. I recommend it to any writer 🙂 I feel like my passion has turned into something magical that I can do every day, and I’m paid for it.

Monday – 13th November 2017

Oh my god, guys, what a day! I came back home! *fiesta time* I can’t believe that I’ve been away for like eight days in a row. I missed Love so much (he didn’t go to the gym after work today because I was going home, so sweet).

By the way, we received the pictures from our wedding photographer. They are sooo beautiful! Emilie was the perfect match for us, so creative, so talented. She photographed the best moments of our big day and got the emotions at the right time. I highly recommend working with her.

Tuesday – 14th November 2017

I went back to the office, and I loved being back in the office. It should be weird, shouldn’t it? If you know me, you certainly remember the time when I wasn’t happy at my job (I even did a burnout). Well, this one is the complete opposite. I’m truly part of an amazing team, I get to do what I love, I’m involved in awesome projects. I wish everybody to feel the same way about your job.

I haven’t written much on my creative project though. The French trip was tiring with all those trains, even though I slept a lot. I tend to fall asleep as soon as the transport moves. It can be a car, a bus, a train, a plane, I don’t care. It’s as if I was entering a sleeping mode. Are you the same? Do you sleep when taking public transports?

Wednesday – 15th November 2017

I did it, I worked on my novel *victory*! I got up at 6.30 am just like I used to before the French trip. I sat at my desk, hopeful that I would write down a couple of words to finish my 8th chapter. You know, the one I was supposed to finish sooner to send to my beta reader? Well, I haven’t finished it yet, but it’s a work in progress. I wrote 177 words in ten minutes (yes, because I couldn’t help doing a little administration before actually starting to write… I should publish a blog post about the excuses I give not to write my actual novel >.< )

Thursday – 16th November 2017 & Friday – 17th November 2017

Oh god… I was so tired the last couple of days! I can’t believe I still walk. Nothing interesting happened, except job-related stuff but it’s not the subject of this post, is it?

Saturday – 18th November 2017

I got up at 10 am. I repeat: I got up at 10 am. It was so cool to finally rest a little. I feel I needed the sleep so badly, just like during week 1 when my body said “Hey, you, hold on a sec’ please, you’re too fast for me.

I watched Jenna Moreci’s class on Skillshare. She’s very good at building an author platform and turning her visitors into fans. To be honest, I am subscribed to her Youtube channel and I follow her on Twitter. It’s because she talked about her class that I checked it out. Anyway, check that out if you’re interested. And if you want more on the subject, you can tell me and I’ll write a little blog post about it.

Now, if you please, I hear Love yelling “Finish your book!” from Porto, where he’s spending his weekend (lucky him!). See you next week 🙂

How was your third NaNo week? How many words have you written?
