#NaNoWriMo Day Four

It’s been a difficult day today, but we’ve made it through day four!

30 Day NaNoWriMo Challenge

Day 4 – What genre is your novel? Why did you pick it?

My novel is a middle grade horror story and I chose it because I wanted to do something darker and creepier than I normally would. I thought about making it YA and then I realised that there isn’t a lot of darker, scarier reads for younger children so I’m doing my best to find the balance between too scary and not scary enough.

I struggled with motivation today. A lot. I got 222 words down before work and then I just kind of floundered. I wanted to write, but the words just weren’t coming. I was doing everything I could to avoid writing and didn’t really know why, but every time I opened the document, I couldn’t get writing done.

Thankfully, I pushed past it, and got my usual 2,500 words written. Not without my laptop completely shutting down on me though! That was a scary moment.

First line I wrote today:

I cursed my inability to stay quiet.

Last line I wrote today:

That had been our goal: If we could each find three kids, our army would be on its way in no time.
