NaNoWriMo got off to a rocky start last week. I hated everything I wrote and pretty much questioned whether or not I should even be writing this novel. It was just awful. That probably had something to do with the fact that I’d only gotten five hours of sleep the night before. Then on the 2nd, I completely restarted. And I fell in love with my novel again. I like where it’s going so far.
Word count has been a bit of a challenge. While I know that it’s entirely possible to get 1667 words done while still getting other things accomplished, I’ve had to choose between the novel, my other projects, and working the dogs. Excuses are great.
Anyway, I’m happy so long as I make progress on this novel. 50,000 words may still happen, but I have book reviews that are the priority. So are the novella and the articles. All I want is to make progress. Even 500 words a day is more than I had that morning.
