Hiya everyone! It’s Sunday evening and we’re past the halfway point with this thing we call NaNoWriMo 2014. Personally, I’m proud to have made it this far, as that means I’m pretty likely to make it all the way to 50,000 words. I’m hoping that this week I can keep staying ahead in the word count so that when Thursday rolls around, I won’t have three days worth to make up over the weekend. But I know that I can do it if need be, so no worries.
Today’s Word Count: 2,125
Word Count to Date: 27,519
Writing Time Today: 2.25 hours
Current Feeling: Relaxed.
Motivation/Inspiration: Knowing I was ahead of the game when I started writing today, and wanting to stay ahead. Oh, and knowing that my reward for reaching 25,000 yesterday, “How To Train Your Dragon 2,” is sitting on the shelf waiting for me to open it and throw it in the Blu-ray player. You’re not wrong if you’re sensing a theme here. :)
Biggest Triumph: Finally getting to the scene I thought I was going to write four scenes ago.
Biggest Setback: Kitty interruptus once again, although today I managed to keep her feet from the keyboard. If she’s the worst setback I have the rest of NaNo, I’ll be a happy camper.
Insights: I figured out today the way I think I’m going to go with my post-NaNo writing strategy. It requires some online shopping and maybe a trip to a teacher supplies store, but I feel good about it. Next step is to write it all out so it’s down on paper; that way I’ll have a harder time ignoring it.
Well, that’s all for me. Wow, I still have plenty of evening left to spend it snuggling on the couch with my pussycat. Not a bad way to end a day of writing!
