Well, it seems as though this year Tuesdays and Wednesdays are going to put a kink in my plans to hit that 50,000 word goal of NaNoWriMo. For the second week in a row, I’ve had two consecutive days without writing and I’m Catch Up Girl once more. Today I did manage to get to a bit over 20,000 and I’m happy about that.
Today’s Word Count: 2,148
Word Count to Date: 20,221
Writing Time Today: 2.5 hours
Current Feeling: Satisfied I didn’t give up and go home.
Motivation: Listening to Queen’s album “A Kind of Magic,” which is the unofficial soundtrack to my favorite movie about a different kind of immortal, “Highlander.”
Inspiration: Getting done so I can go home where it’s warm and hug my cat!
Biggest Triumph: Keeping at it so I could get another day’s word count under my belt (so to speak).
Biggest Setback: Now that the weather’s shifted and that arctic blast blew through Texas, it’s flipping FREEZING in my office at work, and it’s not the comfortable space it was just a week ago. Had to dig out the fingerless mittens so my hands would work.
Insights: Being behind in my word count doesn’t stress me out as much as it used to. Of course I say that now. We’ll see how I feel about it the closer it gets to the end of the month…
Until tomorrow, my fellow Wrimos!
