NaNoWriMo: Day 20 (2019)

20 Nov

Two-thirds done. Crap.

Today’s word count: 2,282
Total word count: 31,690

Two days in a row missed again. I’m getting bad at this. I really can’t afford to miss another day and I need to catch up. I had a massive day today catching up and trying to get back on track but I’m still short of where I need to be. I wish I had done more, but work is wearing me out, too.

I’m dragging my middle a bit. I’m using the time to develop a relationship that I probably needed to work in earlier, but it’s as good a time as any to grow it. I am slowing down a little on purpose but I’m okay with that. I think there will be a lot more to this story on revisions since I’ve dropped a side character I wanted to make much more central to my plot. I’m letting myself be fun at this point and I’ll have to do revisions regardless so I might as well enjoy this process.

Tomorrow needs to be a big day for me. I have time for it so there’s a good chance it will be. I hope I can get caught up or at least get closer than I am right now. I’m leaving for a week-long family vacation on Friday. That will either give me plenty of time or mean I have none. It’s crunch time so I have to keep it going.

Until next time, write on.

    I’m not behind, at least not yet, but this is feeling like the longest month ever and I can’t wait to reach 50K so I can be done.
