This week was hard. In a lot of ways. Early in the week, nerves from the election, then minor freakout from the election results, and then doing things I’d neglected in my post-election-freak out, and then yesterday I accidentally slept 12 hours (it isn’t my fault my body has no natural sleep rhythm so if my alarm fails I don’t wake up!!! I once slept 16 hours because of a power outage and nobody being home all day to wake me up.) and ON TOP OF ALL OF THAT I have committed a cardinal sin of NaNoWriMo….
I’ve gotten hooked on not one, but TWO anime’s this week. I’ve spent a good 4 hours on Crunchyroll the past two days. Between school and work and anime, I’ve written basically nothing all week. I’m now a solid like 10k behind or something.
HOWEVER! I WILL NOT GIVE UP!
I’m still positive I can pull it out. Like I told someone, I once wrote 131,000 words (no that isn’t a typo) in 1 month. 28 days to be exact. I also wrote 60,000 words in 3 weeks more recently, and 40,000 words in a week and a half most recently RIGHT before NaNoWriMo started.
I’ve got this. Once I get into my story, I’m golden. I can make up the 10k I’m behind in two days easy. I already did it once, I wrote over 5,000 words in one day last weekend. I can do it again tomorrow. I’m fine. There’s still a LOT of NaNoWriMo to go.
Hopefully you all are doing better than I am!
