NaNoWriMo: Day 14 (2019)

14 Nov

I don’t think I can keep playing catch up like this. I need a surge!

Today’s word count: 2,773
Total word count: 21,546

I got a lot more writing done than I had been and I’m really glad about that. I had free time this evening and I filled it with writing. There was a TV show I wanted to watch yesterday and couldn’t. I used that as a reward to myself for getting writing done. If I wrote for 30 minutes, I could watch for 30 minutes. It helped me write with focused energy for short times and I think I pushed through because of it.

I’m feeling down about my progress. This is the first day I’ve written where I didn’t catch back up to the daily target. I’m still almost 2,000 words shy of target and I’ll be even further behind tomorrow. I’m starting to wonder if I have the discipline to do this.

I’ll have time to write in the morning, which I’ve grown to really like. I have a conference all day tomorrow so I’ll have to do some work in the evening but I think I can still get words in. I’m hoping the morning is super productive to help me feel good for the day.

Until next time, write on.
