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!
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!
I keep reminding myself that I’ve never lost NaNo and I DO NOT INTEND FOR THIS YEAR TO BE THE BEGINNING!
I SHALL CONQUER YOU, NANOWRIMO!!!
