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!
Sometimes you have to lower your expectations. I wrote nearly 2000 words today. Is it a personal best, no. But that’s still a LOT of words for about 3 hours of on-and-off writing. It’s something to be proud of. I’m still in the running I didn’t give up, I’m still fighting. That is the important part.
How are you guys doing? Still fighting? Even if you’re only at 5,000 words, KEEP WRITING! Words are Words!
It was Friday and I was busy. Don’t worry. I’ve got a weekend to try and catch up.
I’m 3 days behind instead of 4 so that’s a positive at least, I think.
GOOD LUCK AS OF THE HALFWAY POINT GUYS!
