NaNoWriMo: Day 22 (2019)

22 Nov

I’m writing this from a standing bar at the SeaTac Airport and I’m ready to be done writing for the day. But you know what? It was awesome.

Today’s word count: 4,229
Total word count: 38,153

Yeah! This was my best day so far. I was nervous because I only got 100 words in before work this morning. I was really nervous about getting everything packed so I stopped writing to get my things together. I was able to write at the Detroit airport, on the plane to Seattle, and then a bit after dinner at SeaTac while we wait for our final connection. I’m letting myself be done for the day because I’m really glad to have gotten as far ahead as I did and being caught up to the ‘path to success’ again.

I’m plowing ahead to my climax. It’s time to get excited about writing again as we end this marathon and writing the climax is the only thing I can think of that is going to continue to push me forward. I’ll write a really long epilogue if I finish early. At this point, I feel like finishing is not a problem. I’ve got this.

We’ll see what tomorrow brings. My best bet is either taking advantage of my jet lag to write early or getting a bit done in the middle of the day. Tomorrow night is my grandma’s first birthday party (of three) so I won’t get much done in the evening.

Until next time, write on.

    That’s awesome! I had a great writing day too. I skipped yesterday so I had to double up today. It definitely feels great and takes some of the pressure off. Congrats and have a great trip!
