I started a new novel for NaNoWriMo this year. I was very excited about it. My goal for it is 80,000 words, so I had planned to be close to the second pinch point when I hit 50,000.
The honeymoon period went very well. During the second week I had built up a lead of 5,000 words. I was so proud of myself, considering how messed up I was about the election. Then in the third week I got sick and that ate away my lead, and now that I'm well past the honeymoon period and into the swampy middle, I'm beginning to get behind. I'm about 1200 below par right now. This is only the second day of being behind, and it's not a full day yet, so there's plenty of hope. Especially since the little one goes back to school tomorrow.
I plan to head down to the library tomorrow. It's a less distracting environment, and I've done a lot of good writing there in the past.
I guess that's it. Thanks for reading!
