NaNoWriMo: Day 16 (2019)

16 Nov

I know I didn’t post yesterday, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t write! I’m just forgetful and don’t want to write about writing when I’m done writing.

Today’s word count: 2,313
(Yesterday’s word count: 2,908)
Total word count: 26,767

Today could have been better, but it was good enough. I had a swim meet this morning and it left me physically exhausted and sore. I tried to balance relaxing, eating, and recovering with writing. I’d say it went OK. I hoped to go into the week ahead but maybe I’ll be able to do that tomorrow I’m optimistic.

I’m getting more and more nervous about having enough story to get to 50k. I keep writing more detail into my scenes and writing scenes I hadn’t planned on to stretch it out. It all comes out in editing, right? So I’ll put down now what I can. I’m sure I’ll find something I missed later that will need to come out.

I’ll try to split my writing tomorrow between some time before church, maybe a little after, and finishing up after my workout. I hope I get some help around the house so chores don’t eat into that too much. Fingers crossed.

Until next time, write on.
