I didn’t really write anything, I finished some dialogue last night after midnight. I had my late day at work (I work at a bank and we alternate Fridays to work until 5:30 instead of 5), and then we went out to dinner, and then I had to nap so I could stay up from 2:40 until like 8am watching figure skating because Japan is very far away and I’m devoted to this sport.
But like the title says, am I comfortable with how far behind I am? No. Did I once start at like 7pm to write a 15 page term paper for my English degree and finish it at 7:30am – research included because I lost all my saved research – and still make an A on it when I presented it at noon that day? YEP!
I work best under pressure. Probably around day 20 I’ll be writing my ass off every free minute of my day and make an 8,000 word a day comeback.
I once wrote 131,000 words in 5 weeks. I can do this. I’m confident about that. I’ve never ‘lost’ NaNoWriMo and I don’t plan on starting this year.
