So, another week has gone by, and my word count has climbed slowly but steadily. 28,485 words so far.
I have learned a lot about myself as an author this time around, and I know I need to start doing some planning before I write again. The story for NaNo is running away without me, and I am not impressed with it.
I am reaching critical mass for fatigue, and I have been tempted to give up on NaNo a lot… I think it is through pure stubbornness that I am still going. Last night the almost-unthinkable happened. I almost wound up being short on words. I was so disappointed in myself, but when I was sitting here, falling asleep, trying to write… I didn’t have much choice. I decided to finish out the scene before going to bed, and when I did I was ahead on words. So it all worked out.
And now I need to get my words done for the night before I get to the point of falling asleep at my computer again.
