NanoWriMo Update – Day 12

Posted by barb on Nov 12, 2004 in Writing |

Okay, so I think I’ve resigned myself that I’m not going to “win”, where winning means completing a 50,000 word novel between November 1 and 30. I’m not giving up, I’m just starting to see the reality. November is such a bad month for me…in fact, any month that falls between the Autumnal and Vernal Equinoxes is bad. Why? In a word, SAD. It’s about all I can do each morning to get out of bed when the sun rises after I do and sets just after I get home from work. Doing anything in the evenings becomes very difficult, since I’ve used all of my energy just functioning for 8-hours of work.

Having said that, I rallied tonight and wrote 2,253 words. I hit a scene where I really felt in my element after struggling with myself to get started. I’ve gone over 7,500 words. I haven’t given up, I’m still going to try to write like a maniac. However, if I don’t complete 50,000 words, I’m going to be satisfied that I’ve written the most I’ve ever written in one month.

Total words: 7,606
