Welcome to the second week of the NaNoWriMo Diaries, my daily vlog where I talk about the experience of writing a brand new novel for NaNo, at the same time as publishing another, as well as being a mom and an entrepreneur. (And if you wonder how, I explain it all in the Day 9 video!)

NaNoWriMo always brings with it experiences that you’ll never forget! The last week, I’ve had ups and downs and ups again (yay! for ending on a positive note for the week 😀)! Watch the NaNoWriMo Diaries here, to see how the week went.

Day 4: Plotting Wall, Gaming, & A Low WordCount Day

Day 5: I Deleted 20,000 Words 😱😱😱

Day 6: Creating A Cozy Bedside Writing Space

Day 7: 10,000 Words In One Night At A Hotel!

Day 8: Shop With Me & My 10,000 Word Reward!

Day 9: Chat & Plan With Me

Day 10: Hello Kitty 20k Words Reward & A Pep Talk

Let me know how you are doing with NaNoWriMo! This is where things start to feel a little bit hard. We’re 11-12 days in and this is where you may feel that energy and momentum of the first few days waning… but don’t give up! I’ve got a tip for how to find your motivation again and beat this lag in energy in my Day 10 video here! I know you can do it!

Keep watching the NaNoWriMo Diaries over the next few weeks, as I’ll be posting my morning routine, my evening routine, and more tips on how to succeed at NaNoWriMo! I also have three more hotel nights coming up, so stay tuned!

Let me know how you’re doing so far!

Hi, I'm Sarra!

I have been self-publishing my books since 2010, and in that time, I've sold well over half a million copies of my books. I'm not a superstar or a huge bestseller, but I have built an amazing career that brings me great joy. Here at Heart Breathings, I hope to help you find that same level of success. Let's do this.
