I am still trying NaNoWriMo.
But I don’t think I am going to hit the deadline. I am currently just past 17,000 words, I should be around 27,000 words at this point.
I am not liking this stress. I have missed a few days for various reasons.
But I am learning how to get more words done in a session. Over the last two days, I have begun sketching out what I am going to write about that day. That gives me a road map for the writing session. As opposed to my normal, let’s just see where this thing goes.
I get the sense that NaNoWriMo was started to help people finish a book. I have finished books, but I am not liking this pressure of 1667 words everyday. A 1000 words s day, no problem.
I know there are many that would read that and laugh. Doing 1667 words a day is normal.
I’m not there.
I can do between 1000-1700 words Monday through Friday without a problem. Saturday and Sunday become an issue when my kid is home from school.
Oh, well, the book may not be finished by November 30, but it will be finished.
