So here’s the thing: I’m not PROUD of winning it by being a rebel and recording ALL my fictional written words, but I also acknowledge that, though I’ve never been formally diagnosed, since I was about 20 I’ve exhibited similar symptoms to ADD so on the off chance I am Adult ADD, maybe this is really as good as I could hope for on a year with multiple distractions?
Either way, I’m gonna hit 50,000 words in 30 days, which is a serious accomplishment. Even if it’s not 50,000 words on ONE project.
I’m gonna make it, but it’s not gonna be as triumphant as it has been in previous years.
Oh well, c’est la vie!
So maybe I’ve missed a couple of days of updating the blog, but I have been writing! Since I decided to split my project into two parts I’ve been writing both of them pretty equally. I’m sure I can win this year still! YAY!
I had the hardest day at work there is. I don’t know WHY but there has never been a busier day than the day before thanksgiving at work. It’s ROUGH.
Sooooo I came home and chilled out. I didn’t write much and I don’t regret that. It’s just A HARD day and I want to unwind not work hard on writing.
Tomorrow, I’ll kick it into high gear!
So, I decided that since I’m actually working on two things, not just the main one, I’m going to count them both. I’m splitting my focus so why should I split my word count?
That is obviously not one day’s word count, but it is the adjustment to how much I’ve actually written in November. So, from now on, I will be including the combined totals of my November writing.
I didn’t take a screenshot because I essentially wrote about 80 words of my NaNo novel. However, I think I’m going to shift my challenge to that of “Rebel”.
I’m working on a side work at the same time and I know that’s stupid but when inspiration to continue something old hits I can’t ignore momentum.
Of that other work, I’ve written almost 10,000 words in November. I have check on the spot where I started writing this month.
I think I will combine the two word counts at the end because technically I am still going to write 50k words in a month. There’s nothing that days I HAVE to do a traditional NaNo project.
So, unless I hit 50k on the main story I will combine the total at the end of NaNo. Because I truly think split focus is why I’m so far behind.
I have a plan tomorrow though! My siblings are off of school for Thanksgiving vacation. I have work, but we can go to the movies around 7 and I will have 2 hours between work and that so I can WRITE!
